FREEDOM – Mind – heart – spirit



          4 Soaring bird, Tin Can Bay, 21 June 2009

Yesterday freedom was shared about words and the power that free expression gives us particularly if they convey beauty.

Another point to ponder.

What holds many of us back?.  Life deals sometimes confining and restraining blockages

One person’s idea of FREEDOM can be quite different to anothers.

Stephen Hawkins, 72, Scientist – defies the odds. Totally incapacitated. MS and still living after 52 years with this disease.  He was only supposed to live two years!

He has said ‘Science and my brain’s capacity to keep on functioning in trying to grasp new concepts is where my life and ‘freedom’ live’.

A few years ago I met a young wheel-chair bound teacher.  She was tragically injured at four years of age.  She was the absolute picture of serenity and her smile IGNITED a room.

     She reached  for my hand (we were at a Convention). ‘Dance with me’ she said.   She is

the much loved model for hundreds of children.

The freedom she teaches passionately is the truth of her life.   In her imagination and in her understanding – she dances – she has a Hope that one day too she will dance in actuality as a spirit set free.

What holds us back?

Can we SHAKE OFF the past and any baggage?  Can we get rid of the might have been and proclaim the joy of the NOW?

    Let PEACE and PURPOSE blaze in our hearts.


Freedom is of the mind yes, but so much more.

Freedom is of the heart and its yearning for ‘better’.

One day broken bodies will be gone and spirits will escape but for NOW.

Let your spirits be free to rise above to write, dream, live, love, – Plant a flower or simply sit and marvel at something beautiful.

S O A R!


Have a great week-end.!

Be energised for the week ahead!

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    So right. Physical freedom is so important, but some of the most physically free are so bound to other forms of bondage, external such as peer image, and internal, such as guilt. Thankful for freedom in Jesus. The freest thing is to give our bondage (baggage) to Him who makes us free.
