Emancipation Complex

Do NOT ever forget—
I am an African Classic. :p

The Exhausted Pursuit of Being Authentically Free
By X-Ray Robinson

Can one be free without liberty? When we are able to walk as far and as long as we want—are we free? What if it is a walk of stress and worry? Does liberty require physical space to move abroad? Are there foods that conjure up thoughts of freedom? Surely there are songs of freedom. But are there songs that cause us to feel free?

What about family, people we share love with? Do these relationships add real touchable tools to our being free? Is being free a combination of circumstances, relationships, state of mind—or is it different for everyone?

Is there freedom in sadness? Is the opportunity to cry out loud whenever one needs a part or kind of freedom?

What kind of love is it that really makes us free? Or breaks us free? Or sets us free?

Can we, you, me be free even when we are hurting?

So what do you think? Are you free? Do you feel free? Do you see freedom around you?

Hmm, liberty and freedom for all? All? Process the pieces of peace in freedom.
