I found an interesting quote today by Deepak Chopra and it goes:
"Freedom is knowing yourself beyond your story."
Every moment of our lives our minds weaves a tale - blended by beliefs and the constructs created by us and those around us - adorned by intricacies - a web of systems and definitions , contracts and standards - more often than not it rule our lives, we are represented by the media and all that set the paradigm. What we often forget is the need for clarity. To not be consumed by all these third party 'representations' of our reality.
The only truth is now, and what me make of now.
By clearing your mind of past or future you open up the channel for abundance and opportunities beyond what you expect. Surprise!
Realize that you cannot free yourself in any other way but to BE, just be. In that silent awareness - conscious of the mind that speaks and weaves your story. When you let go of who you think you are , then who you are emerges in that silence. Beyond the story , YOU ARE FREE. You were always free.
