Are you free enough to experience whatever feelings are present in you?
Listening to Jeff Foster this week, what stuck out for me was this notion:
We often think of freedom as having ‘freedom from’ difficult emotions. Instead, consider it this way.. that with true freedom, our being has ‘freedom to’ have whatever we are feeling and not need to push it away.
Freedom to, not freedom from.
Freedom doesn’t need to exclude anything.
Changes it up completely. And oh thank God! We’re allowed to be human.
