Independence Day is a celebration of our nation’s freedom.
It is also an opportunity to celebrate your personal freedom and think about where in your life your are independent and where you are dependent.
Freedom is the ability to choose, and there are areas in our lives where we are not free.
We will always have needs, and that is natural. We lose our freedom when our needs stem from “reaction” or “craving”. When this occurs, our mind has bound us.
The practices of Mindfulness will set you free. When you are in the moment, you are grounded in yourself and your actions are from a place of choice.
This way of life gives us Independence from our own self imposed bondage- The ultimate freedom.
Where in your life are you independent? Where are you stuck? Let me know in the comments below.
