It’s the cry of every human heart. It echoes down through the halls of time from the very first whimper of life. Freedom propels chained souls to weep, run, fight, and even die in the last valiant effort to be free from the chains that bind them. We live in a world of bondage.
Freedom is the ultimate experience of a life.
Notwithstanding the societal norms that must be in play in order for that society to function in a healthy way, I believe that we all have lots of baggage we need to throw off. Rules and expectations, either spoken or unspoken, that need to be at the very least re-evaluated.
The worm in the cocoon must ignore the voices that tell it that it will always be a worm…that the cocoon will always be it’s home…that it will never be accepted or loved, but face condemnation at every turn. It must allow the work of nature to complete it’s transformation. Otherwise, it risks death in the cocoon.
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” -Albert Camus
In a world where people face harsh expectations and frowns of disapproval, living in wild freedom and joy is unlikely to go unnoticed.
