I’m Free!

 

IMG_0258aAs I’m riding my bike along the ocean on this 3rd of 12 significant days of 2015, The Who’s song plays over and over in my head:

I’m free – I’m free,
And freedom tastes of reality,
I’m free – I’m free,
And I’m waiting for you to follow me.

Checking the truth of this, I ask myself, “Really? Am I free?”
I hear a resounding “Yes!”
“What am I free from?” I ponder.
“From the shoulds, ought to’s and have to’s of my past.”
This is good.”What else?”
“The truth sets me free.” Seems a bit trite. Yet it reminds me that since the inception of the Revolutionary Agreements nearly 30 years ago, I have been practicing the Agreement to speak my truth, with compassion. For me that meant showing up fully authentically instead of saying what I thought would please others. Oh yes, that has set me free!

Today I recommit to that Agreement and take it to a new level. I realize that the truth of my highest self is what I wish to hear and speak. I no longer feel compelled to “fix” others (nothing to fix!), express uninvited opinions, or speak my projected judgments on another.

I am grateful for being born into a family, community and nation that stands for freedom. http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photo-blue-man-free-ball-chain-image3307065Yet for a long time I locked myself up in my self-made prison of fear, judgment and need for acceptance. On these first twelve days of the new year — and for the rest of my life — I choose to practice the Revolutionary Agreements and live up to the book’s subtitle:

12 Ways to Transform Stress and Struggle
into FREEDOM and JOY!

Won’t you join me? Together, we can speak our highest truth and sing out joyfully,

I am free!
