Unshackle yourself & experience the freedom

December, 2013

“When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do.” – Charles M Schwab.

We talk of political freedom, religious freedom, economic freedom, gender freedom, freedom from corruption, freedom from discrimination, freedom ‘from’ and freedom ‘to’ many things. But have we ever thought what are we doing with the freedom that we already have ? We are curbing it many a times, because we are imprisoned in our own limitations, perceptions, narrow understandings and shallow thoughts of boundaries, boxes, circles. The limitless energy and power within us is untapped, unchartered, clamped and smothered because we don’t believe in ourselves. The free spirit of enquiry and imagination as a child suddenly gives way to lame acceptance, fear of failure, false sense of security and success as an adult. We are afraid to exercise the freedom we have because we fear risking. We start setting caps that limit us from doing what we can.

Can we unshackle ourselves and utilize the freedom that we already have ? Can we start believing in the infinite power of the self and see the difference it makes to our lives and others around us ?
