To live in freedom is to embrace life; to let go of the reins and know how to use them; to achieve your goals. You do not live at the mercy of others. You choose each step, according to what you decide. You know what you want and you are aware of your decisions. A free being is the one who recognises their potential, cares for it, nourishes it, uses it and expresses it; it is an awakened being. It has stopped blaming, complaining and making excuses. It has accepted its full responsibility and has an attitude of gratitude at each moment. It is a relaxed being that does not settle down into comfort zones or laziness. Out of serenity, it goes out of these spaces that limit potential in order to transcend and shine.
To live in freedom you need the power of concentration, which allows you to distance yourself from what is useless, and the power of determination, in order to bring about what you long for. You need to respect yourself, respect others and your surroundings. As we do not live in isolation, the art of living requires empathy, dialogue and silence in order to listen. Our creative capacity to choose what we think and what we feel at each moment and how we respond in each situation is our strength and our freedom. However, our beliefs limit us, our past conditions us and our fears prevent us from living our deepest dreams.
To live in freedom we have to know ourselves better, question our beliefs, clean out the store cupboard of the memories that keep us anchored to the past and overcome fears, which put a brake on and block our immense creative energy. This book offers different ideas, questions and reflections so that you might embrace life, change and uncertainty. For you to live in enjoyment; laugh, accept, confront, love and share. For you to let go of the baggage that you do not need.
