So, I saw this bird flying the other day. I got to thinking, about what it means to be free; especially in this day and age, where even in the land of the free our movements are tracked and dictated for us. Most of our time is pre-determined for us and we don’t even realize it. the constraints to our freedoms are placed on us before ever leaving the womb. They are placed on us by worried parents, grandparents, and lawmakers who think they have the best interest of all. It makes me wonder at what point have I ever made my own decisions…
Since you opened your eyes you have been a sponge, you’ve been soaking up any and all knowledge around. Devouring it at the greatest pace but as you do this, are the opinions that you’re forming yours, or are they the second-hand opinions of your peers? And if that’s so, has your mind already started out impassioned? At what point did you start to think for yourself in the world and when can you honestly say that all your opinions are solidly yours or did they come from another? If the answer is yes, then how free is your mind?
The aspect of being free is sought after all over the world. Whether you are in prison or walking down the street, heading to run an errand or to your job. Everyone is trapped in some form or another. We are trapped in our routines, trapped in the daily monotony of our average everyday lives. We like to think we control our days and our actions and what we are planning to do with the future but in all actuality, you’re just riding the wave of humanity. You’re going with a pre-determined flow of life that is determined from the moment the spark of life that is you was formed.
is the notion of freedom a figment of our imagination? Do we have control of the flow of our destinies or are we caught up in a stream so strong we have no choice but to go with the flow, the only choices we have is to not fall out of the raft and to dodge the logs in the river. “Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our responses lie our growth and our freedom “- Viktor E. Frank
