In honor and celebration of America’s Independence Day, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite quotes in regards to freedom. In America we celebrate with bbq’s and fireworks, beer and big flags. We love our freedom in America and it is kind of what we stand for and what we are know for.
However, freedom isn’t just for America. Freedom isn’t just about flags and fireworks. Freedom is more than a physical state. It is a mental state. And as much as I love celebrating my physical freedom in this great big country, I still know that without my physical freedom I will still always be free inside. No one can take away true freedom.
Freedom is for anyone who wants it. We are all one in the same. We just have cultural, religious and political differences that keep us divided and confused. One day I hope we get to a point where freedom isn’t talked about like it is a feat. One day we won’t go to war to fight to be free. One day we will all be free because we will let go of what fears we have that keep us in bondage. Letting go of whatever beliefs we have that cause us to be divided as a human species. Letting go of whatever worries we have of days not yet here. Letting go of the need to please others. Letting go of control.
Accepting what is and letting go of what is not. That is true freedom.
Happy Birthday America and I send powerful positive vibes to every human on this earth. Let us all celebrate true freedom together.
Peace, Love & Blessing, y’all
I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.
The unhappiest people in this world, are those who care the most about what other people think.
Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.
The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.
We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
The first duty of a man is to think for himself
Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.
Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.
He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.
Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.
Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.
