As we explore the topic of freedom this month, I can’t help but reflect on my personal freedom. I feel gratitude for my freedom to travel and explore the world. Not everyone has the means to experience this type of freedom. And while traveling and learning about the world is thrilling, the freedom each of us has within ourselves is equally thrilling. Perhaps we don’t always acknowledge this inherent freedom of thought and action. Perhaps in not purposefully acknowledging this freedom, we lose the awareness that freedom is an “inside job”. Freedom is within us, even when our external circumstances are otherwise.
Our practice this Monday nite April 20, is our last practice together for three weeks. We will return to our regular schedule on May 18. In the interim, my hope is that all of us take some time each day to remember the freedom of our breath: the breath that connects our mind and body. That’s our practice. It’s that simple!
See you at the UU Church of Fresno, from 6:30-8 pm ! All are welcome!
