To elected officials facing ethical crises as you tow the authoritarian line rather than be of right service to the public that pays you, be free. To anyone oppressed, unknowing of your value to humanity, be free. To those who ignorantly believe that one must oppress to be free, be free. And to those who remain neutral and silent as oppression reigns, be free.
When detachment and inhibition replace desire and passion, be free. When outworn habits and "isms" keep us stagnant and unevolved, be free. When innovation is crushed by the status quo, be free. When one-on-one connection is trumped by social media and hand-held gadgets, be free.
When creative talents remain uncultivated, be free. When love goes unexpressed, be free. When low confidence brings you down, be free. When fears of failure, or success, convince you to not try at all, be free.
Life is happening all around us in this very moment. To live in a manner that stifles our spirits and dampens our imagination is no way to live. If there is anything to be learned during this year’s season of Aquarius, it is to be unashamedly, unabashedly, and unapologetically free. Free of doubts, worry, fear, shame, guilt, hateful rhetoric, power plays, and anything else that prevents us from simply living.
Time after time, client after client, I am reminded of the freedom I have to cultivate a life that I choose, and it all begins with me being free. It begins with you being free. It begins with the essence of who we are being free. No matter your current situation or circumstance, your choice to be free makes you free. No one can take that away from you.
In the spirit of Aquarius, now, and for the rest of our lives…may we be free.
