How would you define interior freedom?
Or, let’s put it this way: what holds you back? What gets in your way? What stops your words, tamps down your emotions, freezes your desires? What won’t turn loose of you?
When do you notice that you’re stuck—and what forms of stuck usually show up in your life?
What patterns seem impossible to change? What habits are so deeply dug into your soul that they seem to have become parts of your personality?
Freedom means the ability to move, to choose, to speak, to think, to learn, to heal, and so on.
We have some powerful material on freedom to share this month on DDF. I suggest we begin by looking at these various questions I’ve posed. This week, try to finish a few simple sentences (I know; it’s never as simple as it appears!):
- For me, the opposite of freedom is . . .
- I know I am not free when . . .
- The part of me that is least free right now is . . .
Peace and grace as we begin some crucial discernment.
