Celebrate our Freedom
This week in North America, both the US and Canada celebrate our respective Independence Days. Almost 250 years ago, in the US, a group of amazing people who were tired of the way things were got together and made a decision to do something different. For them, it was a decision that meant they had to put everything on the line. That is how committed they were to making radical changes to create freedom in their lives.

Let’s consider freedom. What does that mean to you? To me, it means having the ability to follow my own internal compass in order to live life richly, fully in a way that allows me to bring my highest contribution. As the song goes, “I am free to be me!” and to add to it, “I am free to discover and live more of me!”
So, what gets in the way? So often, we believe that something outside of ourselves keeps us from living our freedom. If we really understand the nature of our results, then we realize that freedom must first start within. We must first see ourselves free of constraints. We have to feel the freedom in our beings. As we do that, we will then see the path to outer freedom.
Our forefathers and mothers saw a picture of what freedom could be like. They then used that picture to frame our guidelines for our country. That was the vision. Ever since then, it has acted as our compass for how we show up as a nation committed to freedom.
We have come so far and we still have a long ways to go to live up to the ideal. Nevertheless, it gives us a roadmap and helps us see what is possible. As we can see it, we can be it and then do it.
Your vision is your picture of freedom. The more you see it and let it define who you are being and your activity, the more your world and your life will organize accordingly.
What is your picture of freedom today? As we celebrate our freedom here in North America this week, celebrate the freedom you have to create a picture and then live into that picture. And give thanks to the power that gave us this ability.
Here’s to your dream,
