NOV 4 – 6th
Our 2022 Theme is
No Freedom, No Peace
I don’t have to tell you what’s going on in the world. From tanks in Ukraine to ongoing conflicts in many parts of the globe to headscarves flying off in Iran, we’re in a battle for universal and personal peace. We’re in a storm calling for independence in a world saturated with oppression. We need freedom.
The whole world is in a foxhole.
Why do we need freedom? We need freedom to speak. Freedom to love. Freedom to lie down peacefully at night without bombs falling outside our windows. Freedom to worship. Freedom to abstain from worship. FREEDOM. Economic and social.
Freedom from guns on the street. Freedom from racism, sexism, ageism, xenophobia, classism, discrimination and prejudice. Freedom from oppression. Freedom from corruption. Freedom from the worry of nuclear war.
And most importantly, freedom from the worries in our heads that keep us unhealthy and enslaved.
Deepak Chopra said,
“When you feel unbounded and free, you will begin to heal yourself.”
It’s hard to remain unbound
when the world wants to keep you in chains.
Are you free? And if you’re not, what is holding you back?
I am convinced that no amount of peace can spring from even a sliver of bondage.
Figure it out. What is keeping you bound?
Where is YOUR freedom?
How precious is it to you?
What does your liberation look like?
What makes you free?
What will you do to get it?
What makes a country free?
What makes our planet free?
What will we do to protect it?
When you fight for your freedom you are fighting for your peace.
When we fight for OUR freedom, we are fighting for our peace.
But what if your freedom infringes upon my freedom?
Are we free?
We are even more estranged. We are at war.
Make sure your “freedoms” cause no harm to others.
No Freedom, No Peace
See how that works?
We are peace bloggers. It’s what we do.
This isn’t a rallying cry for more war. That wouldn’t be in our wheelhouse.
It is not an if-then statement. It is not a threat against power. Under the conditions of a peace movement such as this, we are acknowledging that one cannot exist without the other. It is clear we are talking about mutualevolution, not revolution….UNLESS…your revolution is quiet and peaceful, productive and compassionate. Then I’m all in.
This is my challenge to you this year.
When you find yourself in the middle of an invasion or unwanted change, surrounded and bound, reclaim your freedom.
Let’s get FREE!
