    Hehehe.......it wasn’t provocation. It was synchronicity as I thought recently about inner freedom. I believe that there is no freedom without having inner freedom. Lack of the inner freedom most people face reflects what is going on outside of us as I believe that everything is an inner reflection.
    My stormy month on the forum was a way my soul forced me to look at this issue. I believe that it is very important for us to find our definition of freedom rather than looking what others think about freedom. It is a matter of personal growth and personal responsibility.
    I know that what people think will never stop me to do what I want but it affects me emotionally, and as such, I am not free yet. I still need to do soul searching to find out what do I need to do to achieve emotional freedom. When we have the emotional freedom, we are truly free as we don’t react to others behaviors, and as such, it will not affect our joy and inspiration. We can, therefore, live our life to its fullest, freely expressing what we are.I strongly believe that if everybody were free from the issues of control and inner blockages they try to impose upon others, we we would enjoy true freedom.

    Anarchism has but one infallible,
    unchangeable motto, 'Freedom.'
    Freedom to discover any truth,
    freedom to develop,
    to live naturally and fully.

    The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on and individual level. It's got to happen inside first. You can take away a man's political freedom and you won't hurt him- unless you take away his freedom to feel. That can destroy him. That kind of freedom can't be granted. Nobody can win it for you.

    -Jim Morrison

    Ah...I so f.....g like this one!!!

    The only way to deal with an unfree world
    is to become so absolutely free that your
    very existence is an act of rebellion.

    Nobody can give you freedom.
    Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything.
    If you're a man, you take it.

    Necessity is blind until it becomes conscious.
    Freedom is the consciousness of necessity.

    I think there could be something in the etymology of the word Freedom

    Freed - Om

    Normality is the capacity to express your feelings.
    From the moment that you don’t fear to share your heart,
    you are a free person.

    Thanks Carol and Linda!

    Simplicity ... how complicate is to reach it, isn't it?

    However, it just comes sometimes. I really hope there is some explainable connection concerning Freed - Om. And I hope it is simple one. If explanations is needed, of course.

    Thus, as Spirits, we are inherently,
    indefensibly divine,
    with all the splendour and freedom
    implied in that word.

    I have no any smart quote on freedom in the moment, but I have something else -- a bit of beauty-freedom. Pieces of heaven -- music by Grande Maestro Ennio Morricone for few movies, all of them great ones. Many says Morricone's music made them legends.


    "Once upon a time in America"




    "Cinema Paradiso"




    "Once upon a time in the west"
