EmBody Bliss: To Take Flight

“There are no “supposed to be’s” in this Universe.  When we quantify ourselves and others through “should’s” and “shouldn’ts,” we define limits for ourselves and the Universe at large.  We distrust and hinder the ability that one has to be moved by their heart.  When we “suppose” ourselves, we “suppose” God.  We quantify the unquantifiable.  And then like birds in a cage, we writhe, starve, and pluck out each other’s feathers in hopes to regain our free will and fly again.  We intuitively know that our nature is nothing close to a definition; but a limitless, ever changing, unquantifiable experience.  And it is your choice, in every moment, to set free or not.” – Kierstie Leavitt

What do you think of when you hear the word freedom?

What people, places, or animals come into mind?

When I think of freedom, I think of flight.  Like a bird abandon itself to the sky – gliding over the Earth, reigning over creation, feeling the wind in its wings – with the presence of joy pervading his absence of pain.

From an outsider such as myself, this bird may epitomize freedom – but does he feel free or does he just appear to be?  Could he really be housed in an internal cage?  Is he experiencing flight, as I perceive it to be?  Is he experiencing freedom or just an everyday means of travel?

Just as all perceptions are created by our own realities – the bird’s perception of flight would highly depend on how the bird lived before his flight.  Was he born in captivity?  Has he observed the outdoors from a cage, never being able to step out and fully experience it until now?

 The degree of non-freedom that he experienced prior to flight would cause him to extract the same degree of freedom from the experience of flight – and this goes for all of creation.  However great your contrast is, so are your findings.  Upon this principle, we are always becoming the expanded, but the action in moving with our findings is what really propels the Universe forward.

Moving with the expanded is not always the easiest art, but it becomes much easier when you are not attached to the person you once were.  Through experience, you are always changing and becoming.  You technically aren’t the same person you once were, even in the beginning of this article.  Your attachment to your identity hasn’t sustained you in your darkest nights, yet you find that knowing thyself is a very powerful tool in life.

So how can one get to know thyself without identity, as a constantly learning, changing, and expanding individual?  The answer lies in the Heart, the Spirit, the All – the only constant in life in which you are.  Spirit is freedom and freedom is spirit.

In the benevolent frequency of the All, you experience the eternity of what you are, and what potentials you will become– which is much different than a static identity.  In the All, all dimensions are available for your exploration and you do not need an invite, because this is your home.  All good feeling exists here, not necessarily because circumstances change but because your relationship to circumstance does.  With such connection to Spirit, you know that nothing can be lost and all is found within itself.  Any pain you may experience is only a divergence from this connection to ourselves.  And any divergence from this connection is only a patch of clouds, temporary turbulence, in the art of aviation – for you are always in flight.
