“My 7 Days of Contemplation”

Standard

Day 3

What value does freedom hold without choice. What value does choice have without the yin and the yang to choose from?

About connieszone

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.

  1. In my perspective – Within freedom, there may be a choice, however in freedom of choice there is no freedom. When my mind accepts there is only light/dark or Yin/Yang, thus there is just that.
    Consider this example – When I look at the brightest of the bright light, what do I see?
    When I look at the darkest of the dark, what do I see?
    The answer to the above two may assist me to look beyond light/dark or yin/yang.

    If interested, please take a look at the post “Freedom from Self” and advise of any questions. I am happy to explore this further together – https://oneandnone.wordpress.com

    • Thank you so much for your response and interest. The whole idea of my 7 day contemplation is to do just that get people thinking and sharing their insights. I did read you blog on “Freedom from Self” it’s very deep. You have a beautiful gift of insight into things. I was recently reading something about how the deep insights we get can be very hard to put into a language of understanding especially for those who are not in a place to receive it yet. I believe you are writing for an audience that understands the depth from which you come. I on the other hand have this deep calling to put that language into a form that gives my readers something they can begin to work with that hopefully will get them to the understanding you write about.
      I look at the freedom of choice in relation to the life we create for ourselves while here on earth in this body. I can choose this or that. How I choose to think can take me to a better understanding that leads me to that place that goes beyond the self as I think you are referring to in “Freedom from Self”
      Thank you again for your response!

  2. Thank you for taking the time to read that piece of sharing. I understand what you mean and I think I should have done a better job at conveying my thoughts, for I see I have given you a different perception of what I intended to present.
    That which I share is my everyday life that i live and not just insights or theoretical thoughts in my mind. And I only write for myself, the self that I accepted as my self and the self from where my thoughts are emerging claiming as mine.
    For, in my perspective – For the you to exist to me, I have to exist to me. When the me that claims as me/I ceases to exist in any form/shape or imagination, will the “you” still exist to me?
    So is the reason I think about me and all of the You that is being projected through this me as a reflection of me.
    And here when I am able to free me from me, not by choosing to free me but by examination of this very me, maybe there lies the freedom of no me, may be there lies the freedom from self.
    Thank you for letting me share 🙂
