Freedom to Live

If you knew today was you last day on earth, and not worried about it, what would you really like to do? Well whatever your answer is, ask yourself why then are you not doing that today? People tend to think somebody else is going to die today, but not me. Child or adult it makes no difference to death. Children die everyday by the thousands in this world. Death is ageless, It has no regard for your present age, conditions young and old alike die, it takes you when your time comes without a second thought. None of this is being said to frighten you, but rather to remind you of what you should remind yourself each day of your life. If you do, you wont let a moment go by so quickly, you will embrace it and savor the moment for what it is no matter what your doing.

Death can change the quality of your life by the gentle reminder to live fully and learn, and enjoy and don't be afraid to live freely, savoring your desires to know and experience them freely. You can even be thankful for "bad" things because often they lead to something positive through learning, changing and growing. The secret to happiness is having your basic physical needs sustainably met for health warmth, clean air, clean water, nutritious food, rest and movement, and a variety of interesting things to see, hear, taste, smell, and touch, having the freedom to make your own decisions about your life, without fear of criticism from others for your life style.

According to Karmic Law we are born for certain periods time so as to balance our Karmic scale then and only then can we leave this vibrational state of existence so we may move upward in evolutionary development. I asked, in one of my email's, are you really free? Well, the answer to that question is NO! Only those who are awakened are really free. Until that day arrives you are a slave caught in the illusion, this is not freedom, it is slavery is of the worst kind. As long as you are trapped by the illusion of Yin and Yang you will always lean one way or the other, and never finding balance, thus freedom.

You are not free, you are captive, forever, choosing this or that, fearful of this or that, denying this or that, judging this or that and even with your judgement calls you wont be find satisfaction. In your heart you will be wishing it were different, but the power of the dream is too overwhelming for the average person to overcome. You need a discipline, a path a direction to follow so as to be shown the clearing ahead to the top of the mountain, the way through the dream, and into reality, then you will be fully awake and thus fully alive and content with life as it is, without the phoniness associated with the dream. You will be truly alive and free then and only then.

Freedom is happiness, freedom from your Master namely the illusion. You can live happier today if you take the chains off your free will, live as you feel, your inner naturalness cant make a mistake, only the thinking calculating mind can cause confusion and doubt. Until you are free you will always remain the slave of the illusion. You make your decisions according to societies rules, not yours, you live according to societies demands, not yours, You do this because of the threat of punishment by society or others criticisms if your don't. You are not your own master as long as you are caught in this web of yin and yang. Some will say we have no choice, it is either yin or yang, what else is there? There is choice not to take either, it is the third choose not spoken of by society because it is to dangerous for societies survival. The sage takes neither choice but rather simply follows his or her inner callings.

This reminds me of a story I have told before; but I will tell it again for those who not read it. There were two monks walking down a road, when they came upon a large floor of water blocking the path. There by the flooded waters stood a woman wondering how she was going to pass over the water without getting herself wet. Now monks are not supposed to touch or even look at woman for fear it would arise sexual thoughts, but one of the monks picked the woman up into his arms and carried her across the water and put her down on the other side. The other monks was shocked, and after some time asked his follow monk, "how could you do that?" "Do what? Replied the other monk." Pick up that woman, was his reply. The other monk looked at him and said, I put her down hours ago,, yet you still carry her, why so?... End of story

This is an example of what we do each day of our life, carry our fears with us, if we but put it all down and forget good or bad, yin or yang we could learn to do what we see fit to do without guilt or shame. Simply doing what comes naturally, without regrets. Knowing the ways of existence brings with it the freedom to break free of the dream and live as nature intended you to live. FREE At Last!!! FREE at Last!!

Buddha Bless
