Your Freedom Check Up

Did You Get Your Freedom Check Up?

THE UN FLAG—a face of freedom?
The UN Flag

I am passionate about people having the freedom to live fruitful, beautiful lives. But, what is freedom?

Myth One: Freedom is independence.
Fact: When Free to be me without thinking of others, and we both get banged up.

Myth Two: I can do anything.
Fact: Time, energy, and money effect my reach. Community extends my reach.

Myth Three: Freedom rises from technology.
Fact: Our big, organic system breathes freedom. Things don’t. Get with the organism.

Myth Four: Knowledge is freedom.
Fact: Freedom is seen when one dances with wisdom. What do I embody?

Lessons I’ve learned from InterPlay and life. My freedom demands that I take, make, and bake my choices.

Those who want freedom are under a mandate to experiment and screw up. (ARG)

Freedom necessitates change-a bummer for control freaks.

Most importantly, Freedom is grounded in love and taking time.

Anne Lamott says, “What fills us is real, sweet, dopey, funny life. I’ve heard it said that every day you need half an hour of quiet time for yourself, or your Self, unless you’re incredibly busy and stressed, in which case you need an hour. I promise you, it is there. Fight tooth and nail to find time, to make it. It is our true wealth, this moment, this hour, this day.” To read more click here. Time Lost and Time Found.

Your bodyspirit needs the right mix of choices (freedom) and structures (roles and tasks). Too much structure and you’re squelched. Too many choices, (freedom) and you’re overwhelmed. Have you claimed your unique alchemical mix?

Check your body data (bits and pieces of experience) on choices and structures
Check your body knowledge (the patterns in your experience) to get clues about your preferences.

What can you do to create the amount of structure or choice you want?

InterPlay is a freedom hot house, a place to grow a garden of creative mulchy body wisdom. InterPlay is structures (forms) with room for our voice, wisdom, story, energy, moves, and visions. Get the oxygen of affirmation, the water of encouraging ideas and practices, and the soil of healthy colleagues.  Wouldn’t that be nice? Check out InterPlay.org for the freedom hothouse near you.
