But I want to propose another perspective. What if... every time we rail against anything, we are giving away our freedom? That is, the freedom of our alignment with who we really are. As my friend, Abraham, says, "This isn't about what you do or don't do."
When asked about whether the mandates for vaxx-ing are taking away our freeom, Abraham answered, "We get it that you can call this some lack of freedom. But there is so much more evolution and expansion in the decisions that you are making. . . Because it's the pushing against that takes your freedom and your Well-being and your joy.
This is a much higher perspective than most of us usually have as a knee-jerk reaction to what is going on around us. For me that is true anyway.
Instead, I always want to stop and consider, "could there be more expansion and growth for me and all others than I can see here and now?"
Then, I take a couple of deep breaths and ask, "doesn't that feel better? Or does it feel worse? Or does it feel about the same?" I repeat the breathing until I can say, "yes, that feels a little better!"
That's the path to joy, to enlightenment and total FREEDOM! Little by little moving up the Emotional Guidance Scale.
