A Favorite Quote from the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
"The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves, to express ourselves. But if we look at our lives we will see that most of the time we do things just to please others, just to be accepted by others, rather than living our lives to please ourselves. That is what happened to our freedom. And we see in our society and all the societies around the world, that for every thousand people, nine hundred and ninety-nine are completely domesticated. The worst part is that most of us are not aware we are not free. There is something inside that whispers to us that we are not free, but we do not understand what it is, and why we are not free..."
My inspired commentary from these words: I am free. Your words intended to harm, oppress, destroy and hurt are a waste of your breath, energy and my time. I no longer believe the lies you told yourself, the lies you told me and the lies you tell the world - only the truth. Thank God above for freedom. Let yourselves be free from the judges and abusers by refusing to let them continue to abuse you by continually telling your stories of woe. Those grand illusions of woe retold over and over just give all your power over to the abusers and judges. Stop it. There is no need to extract from others sympathy for the beautiful light you already have inside of you. That love and energy are yours to create at any time you choose. So choose that instead of harboring anger, blame and vengeance and you will know freedom. I am free. Blessings dear souls and so much love and light to you! Thank you Don Miguel Ruiz for your beautiful and timeless wisdom!
