July 4, 2009 Monthly Message 2009 - Freedom
Today is Independence Day in America and I wish you a happy 4th of July. I wish you freedom.
Do you know these words from the song Kris Kristofferson wrote and Janis Joplin made famous? 'Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.'
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose!
If you think you have something to lose, then somewhere there is someone who can manipulate and control you by threatening to take it away.
Have you ever considered that blind belief is the opposite of freedom?
Just yesterday I was contemplating how to remove four screws from my juicer so I could replace the little rubber pads it stands on. I had decided a couple of days ago, after trying valiantly to remove them, that it was impossible for me to do so. I wasn't strong enough.
Late last night I decided I did not have to believe it was impossible. I replaced the thought with one that said it was possible for me to remove these screws! So I tried screwdrivers, hammering, oil, and finally found some sort of pliers (whatever they're called) and was able to get each screw lose and replace the pads! It wasn't physical strength that was necessary...it was belief. Changing my thought opened me to new possibilities and ingenuity. So this morning I had fresh juice again.
