Freedom

IMG_6002.JPG

Freedom is not freedom when you are simply a slave to your own passions or your own self-will. Freedom is onlyfreedom when you have the ability to offer up your own relentless self-assertion for the sake of another. For the sake of anyone! When you are free to love even when it's costly and frightening. To be free...truly free, you must be free of the fear of being wrong, being an outsider, fear of not being in control. All for the sake of loving. And being loved. Freedom means not letting the things of the world determine your value. Because you are immeasurably priceless. Because you were loved first. Deeply and freely. Without conditions. No matter who you are. And your purpose is to give it back. Endlessly. This is freedom. The freedom to give yourself. Not the freedom to withhold. Because that...is prison.
