“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path. – Joseph Campbell
Absolute freedom. A life devoted to creative self-expression.
A life that is fundamentally free is one that is free of certainty. Purpose, passion, goals. . .they do not matter. The only guarantee of success is that every outcome is uncertain. Their is no guarantee. Our purpose is not to be found or “discovered”. Our essence is to be expressed or we may fall into arrested expansion.
To become completely comfortable with uncertainty is total freedom.
To live a life that is full of curiosity, enthusiasm and wonder.
To be free to live open to every situation at one time that we imagined would be difficult or a conflict.
To express the creative capacity of our essence.
This is how our lives become a work of art.
To live in direct contact with the perpetual, dynamic uncertainty that is implicit in the power of life itself. To appreciate the mystery of life.
This is equal to living in the heart of intimate freedom.
When we simply are, we are free.
There is no purpose to be found. Just the creative expression of life itself.
As you stroll along, if you’re awake enough, you will be led by your curiosity and excitement.
