Independence Day

We celebrate the birthday of the USA on this day each year. This Independence Day is a very special day for me, as this year, 2012, I am celebrating my own personal declaration of independence.

As I write this post, our Internet connection is down so I looked up independence in a paper dictionary. My dictionary defines independence as the freedom from subjection to the influence or control of others. Freedom is defined as the state of being free. Free is defined as exempt from the will of others. Interestingly, the origin of the word free is a Gothic word that also means “to love.”

I have always believed that we exist in creation to learn, to live, to love. My journey in recent years has led me to realize that my mission, my purpose, my calling in life is to help others uncover their own freedom, happiness, love and peace.

So here’s my declaration of independence: From this day forward I allow myself to be free. Free to learn, to live, to love.

I’ll say more on this topic in future posts. For now, I’m wishing all of you freedom, happiness, love and peace. If you can’t yet see that they are already yours, I will hold that space open for you until you do. I love you all, the other parts of me. Happy Independence Day!
