beyond freedom vs control
It can be easy to get caught in a freedom vs control paradigm. This is where freedom is at one end of the spectrum and control at the other. The more control, the less freedom and the more freedom the less control. According to this linear perception, too much freedom or too much control is dangerous. So the solution is to attempt to find the right balance between the two. What is beyond this polarity? What does control become when it is imbued with the field and frequency of love? What is true freedom? In an environment born of fear and separation, control is often imposed in a way that stifles life, growth, beauty, vitality, creativity and expression. Freedom is often exercised in a way that is potentially harmful, detrimental or dangerous to people who aren't on the same page with the one acting according to their perceived rights. In other words, it can merely be people acting with the notion that there should be no consequence of their actions, because they are deserving of and entitled to their "freedoms."
As love enters the picture, or as the field and frequency of love heals, dissolves and remedies the pain and torment of fear and separation what becomes possible? Control can be exalted into caring about our own and other's best interests. Freedom can be about truth, honour, expression of being, creative ingenuity and celebration of the best of who we are individually and collectively. It's no longer a me vs you or an us vs them dynamic. Perhaps we have a ways to go as a planet, yet how many of us can now reconcile and integrate this freedom vs control polarity within us and be the leaders of a different possibility for the world? In the Walking the Path episode with Kristin that we recorded yesterday, I touched on this freedom vs control dynamic. I'm sure I'll be writing and speaking about it more as it continues to be synthesized, transmuted, integrated and exalted within me. May we realize unity and live the joy of knowing and being love in action.
