from old to new
I came across this post from my old blog and wondered if I think differently now than I did in 2007 when I wrote it. I discovered I don't.
I am totally in awe of wise people; philosophers, sages, poets and the like. They have this amazing gift of summing up human thought and endeavour in succinct yet powerful terms. I came across this recently, and until I can quote it properly and give credit to the author, I will paraphrase. It talks about the concept of freedom and says something to this effect. .....
The secret of happiness is freedom, the secret of freedom is courage.
As I do when I come across a statement so significant, I evangelise. All my friends and family are made aware as I rant and rave about how great and ultimately life changing it is! Perhaps you too, my new friends should ponder that weighty statement. It takes courage to be truly free. It takes courage to become who we were destined to become.
