Good day, my reader ... Chris is in touch. This article I am writing is the first of a series of articles on freedom ... First of all, I want to note the fact that I’ve lived on my own skin in everything that I am talking about and what I will talk about in subsequent publications. All my experience and conclusions set forth here, without claiming to be true ... This is the philosophy of my life ... and, possibly, the largest file in it ...
"But I do not cry and do not cry,
Although I don’t know where to find, where to lose,
And it may very well be that to your misfortune
I’ll lose more than I find. ”
So, read with pleasure, connect your common sense, listen to your heart ... Always be critical of what you read ... but never give up what touches you to the core ... by the fact that moving in that direction you will gain YOURSELF freedom ...
The issue of freedom itself is very voluminous ... And roughly speaking it consists of three parts ... This is freedom from public opinion, personal freedom and freedom of expression.
The whole site is about freedom of expression, for me it is the highest personification of this freedom and is dedicated to everything that is IMPORTANT to DO for me. So, if you plan to DECLARE THE WORLD ABOUT YOURSELF, then sign up for blog updates and DISCLOSE YOURSELF with the same universal tools that I use ... and ... ... observe how the world begins to respond to you in gratitude ...
In the same article, I want to focus on the first two types of freedom.
Freedom from public opinion or external freedom
Personally, I always had a sufficient degree of freedom from public opinion and independent views ... Since virginity, this has caused not a small number of problems, mostly not to me 🙂, but to my environment or individuals who have formal authority and try to fit me into the concept or format of their framework. And this, as you know, is difficult to do with a person who has his own judgment. And if so, then it becomes obvious that neither to which formal authority, neither the state, nor any of the social structures does gaining external freedom by you, because by the fact of your existence outside this framework you cast doubt on the integrity of this structure... Therefore, TV, radio, etc. so diligently form this public opinion with the help of which they control the crowd ... In continuation, I will present my favorite poem on this topic, which reflects the essence of what is happening in the world in the best possible way ...
We are a herd. Millions of us heads.
We graze together and bleed together
And we do not regret anything in the world.
The lamb herd is our destiny.
They drive us into the corral - we hurry to the corral.
Chasing grazing - we are in a hurry to grazing.
Being in a herd is a basic law,
And only one thing is scary - to fall out of the herd.
When the time comes, they cut us.
Why cut? We do not understand this.
But they cut everyone. Where to go here
Although this procedure is extremely unpleasant.
And shepherds have been given power over us,
They said that by the will of the sorcerer.
And we live without knowing those tyrants
What turned us into rams!
Ah, how juicy the crisp grass is in the pasture!
How cold the water in babbling streams!
Why do we need to know about the wiles of witchcraft,
When the dream in the shady thickets is so sweet ...
Yes, the shepherd’s whip whips on the sides.
Well of that: keep up with the herd!
And the corrals have a solid fence.
And the shepherds vigilantly guard us!
But yesterday, two rams disappeared ...
The shepherds did not help them.
The shepherds themselves ate them, and the wolves would be to blame.
But the herd doesn't give a damn about the brothers, "from the top shelf."
We are a herd. Millions of us heads.
Come swaying the curls.
We are not afraid of the tricks of sorcerers.
We are rams. Do what you want with us!
If you translate high literature into Russian, then ... from all sides we are told who we are and what we should do - and we agree to play by these rules and continue our life, if only we are not an outcast in this society and not to seem, to put it mildly, “ugly ducklings” for their “friendly” environment.
In fact, for an average person, this is normal ... because you need at least something to be guided in this world ... how to gain an understanding of "good and bad" or the correctness of what we are doing if we don’t have our own vision and other coordinates other than public morality ...
But if you are going to continue to look back at her, then there can be no freedom of expression and speech, you will always be worried about the questions: what will they think, how do I look, how will they evaluate, if I am mistaken, and if they laugh, and if it doesn’t work out … etc.
And in order to move towards their freedom it is necessary, in addition to the courage and spirit of a rebel, gain inner confidence in the correctness of their actions, and then public opinion and questions incompatible with the very definition of freedom will stop you worrying ...
Personal freedom or how to gain confidence in the correctness of their actions
Conscience, principles and human dignity ... This is quite enough to be sure that you are doing the right thing ... and not become a hostage to the situation and the opinions of others ...
Conscience is what helps us to distinguish “good” from “evil”, “truth” from “falsehood”. Acting conscientiously, we will never feel guilty or embarrassed ... we will not be familiar with the fear of punishment ... This is something intangible and inexplicable ... but all-encompassing. This sense of inner justice, which is rooted in the laws of nature and the universe itself ... and serves the good of evolution ...
It is these laws that I turn to when I have doubts about justice in making this or that decision ... and, most often, these decisions are ruthless, like nature itself.
By principles, I mean not “my opinion”, which we are sometimes ready to uphold until the last with foam at the mouth, but certain landmarks that are beyond doubt, adhering to which we go through life.
For me it honesty and sincerity. I don’t understand the intrigues and deceit ... I’m used to telling the truth ... and not building skyscrapers out of lies just to seem like something better for someone ... And while this line of behavior has always been successful ... I don’t need to remember who and what I she said - it greatly simplifies life and releases a ton of energy to work on what is really important ...
And it’s important improve (push boundaries) and become better day by day, gaining more freedom ...
After all, no one will argue that if we develop professionally, we become more in demand on the labor market ... and freedom is just a great option!
And the next important principle, which relates more to freedom of expression, is altruism, ministry or initiative ... For each of the definitions, one can write more than one paragraph ... but now the main thing is to catch the idea that it is always important to do a little - a little more than you are "paid" ...
And if all of a sudden ... you are so good ... honest and sincere, so conscious and disinterested, you acted "wrongly", be able to, first of all, keep your human dignity...
It is in the above principles that I see the manifestation of my personal freedom, acting in accordance with these principles, I always know that I'm right ... even if I go against public opinion and don’t fit into generally accepted standards of behavior ...
This is what is called “Be with your KING IN THE HEAD”. What I wish you 🙂 Kisses.
