A beautiful (in meaningful ways) weekend to all
Freedom without responsibility is not ‘real’ freedom at all. It is SELF-focussed’ humanism. It’s my life I can DO whatever makes me happy. Perhaps for a time it appears to work. When all the doing is over and this concept of freedom evaporates what is left?
Often despair and hopelessness. (Perfect examples are people driven to succeed in sport, films, all sorts of creative endeavours whose whole FOCUS in life is upon their personal achievements.)
A simple meditation this weekend. Like the child on the swing who has a soaring freedom yet must rely on the swing to support her and the integrity of the person making sure she does not fly (off and into………??).
How can we be FREE yet responsible?
LOVE ……..Human possibilities.
Love for the people around determining all actions. Natural.
Spiritual freedom – not confined to anyone else’s restrictions. ? DIVINE LOVE …..Undergirds and guards this soaring.
For Christian Believers ‘Set my spirit free – so I can worship YOU’ is indicative of a freedom that indeed soars beyond all earthly restrains.
The safety guard and guide is LOVE.
Love is responsibility.
How free can we be this weekend within the bounds of responsibility to SOAR?
Shine a strong Light of Love on someone this day.
