Freedom Has Many Definitions

The freedom to live as you please. No the rooster didn't get asked for I/D or even carded.

The freedom to live as you please. No the rooster didn’t get asked for I/D or even carded.

Ask 100 people what freedom means and you’ll probably get 100 different answers. Freedom means something different to almost every one of us. While returning our last visitor to the airport the conversation of freedom came up and it actually was what inspired me to compose this post entitled “Freedom Has Many Definitions”. When you’re done reading my intention is that you’ll have gained a higher tolerance for other peoples definitions of a simple word freedom… a simple word that possesses a myriad of meanings.
One of the biggest mistakes that almost all trends minded people keep making over and over is ASSUMING that everyone wants to be informed. By taking this misguided thought then converting it into your personal truth is what always starts the arguments with your family and friends. Let me tell you from someone who’s been doing this for over thirty years now… THEY DON’T want to know period end of discussion!!!If they did they’d be doing their own research and the more you pressure them the deeper hole you’re digging for yourself. MOVE ON take the helm and do what you know needs to be done. That’s how you show true love to the one’s that matter the most. You can let your ego enjoy the thank you later on but now is not the time.

No he doesn't need tags or a license not even a permit. What about you can you even have a dog or have your child open a lemonade stand without one of the above. Most I meet can't even relate to this for this is freedom.

Throughout history so much blood shed along with millions of lives have been lost all for the so called fight for freedom. Look around you and you’ll soon find out nothings really changed. Is it our destiny that so many well-intentioned but misguided beings should be fighting and dying for a cause that’s never really even existed? All we ever seem to accomplish is overthrow one leadership and its rules only to be replaced by another leadership and its rules. Perhaps the biggest illusion of all is the fact that human beings feel they need leadership at all but somehow they’ve convinced us that we do and it’s for our own good.
Look there’s nothing new going on here. The same misguided information staged events and controlled media’s have been in existence for centuries dating back to well before the time of Abraham but you never notice the seed growing till it breaks the surface. Let me share what seems to have been kept a secret from most. The seeds have been growing unseen for centuries and as common with ALL SEEDS in order for it to grow it MUST first ROT!
Sounds about right with what’s currently unfolding? I’m confident I just hit a near perfect chip shot with all you Illuminati and conspiracy people out there. Here’s quick recap on the order of how corrupt political systems come into power and why for some it feels to have occurred so rapidly.

Selling chicks out of the back of his truck. Want to try this one where you live and if you're silly enough to ask him if he's got a license you'll be lucky if he pulls out his driver's license. If he even has one. What you need or what you don't need both define people's definition of what freedom means.

If he even has one. What you need or what you don’t need both define people’s definition of what freedom means.

First: The seed’s been rotting underground for centuries. Nobody wakes up tomorrow morning to find a fully grown oak tree in their front yard. Somewhere way back in time a seed was planted. Second: Left unnoticed it rotted underground growing vast amounts of roots building a strong support system only to reemerge stronger at a much later date. Third: By the time people take notice it’s already broken through the surface. Fourth: Already well embedded with deep roots of support it’s now ready to branch out and grow bigger… stronger while spreading its powerful forces out over vast amounts of new area. This last step occurs rather rapidly. That’s why so many mistakenly have the illusion that things have developed so fast. Actually they seldom ever do. It takes time to put these pieces into their proper places. Sound a bit familiar? It should. That’s a simple but accurate description of how most nations corrupt political systems come into power and it’s been happening that way for thousands of years.

I suppose what makes this word freedom so confusing is each of us feels our interpretation of what freedom means to us is somehow more valid than what the next person’s views are. Actually when you think about it that’s not far off from believing that everyone wants to be informed. Once again this belief is your mistake and attempting to convince anyone of you’re being correct will only yield the same results as trying to wake up the content to be uninformed. The same end result will always be an argument.

Grandpa and his granddaughter returning with fresh organic milk. No FDIC warlords waiting for them with weapons drawn. Can you even remember what living in this fashion is remotely like? Probably not but it's OK it's your freedom to choose. At least for a while longer.

For some freedom can be as simple as being able to choose from 27 varieties at the local Dunkin Donuts. Yet for others freedom means the right to fight and die for what they believe in. Remember as hard as this is for most of us to except BOTH are valid interpretations and TO THE INDIVIDUAL is what’s important to them. Freedom for some folks is measured in terms of what you’re allowed to do and yet for others it’s measured by what you’re not allowed to do. I could go on but I feel you’ve gotten the point I’m trying to get across. The word freedom has as many meanings as the universe is wide.

A bit of a side bar. I love sitting back and watching how conversations on freedom play out while I’m with larger tour groups. I just sit back and enjoy the feud. Sitting back while sipping my rum it’s like having a rink side seat at a prize fight. Sometimes my local friends are joining in with the tour and they already know what’s going to happen and give me the smirk wondering when a few calming words of wisdom will prevail and get everybody to realize something good is actually taking place but with tempers flaring went right over everybody’s head.

Plantano Power!! Don't worry the car passed inspection.

What’s actually going on is they all care and want to at least by their terms get others to see the light and that’s a really good thing. About now I’m confident a lot of husbands or wives know exactly what I mean when they’re attempting to get their best half on board with some sort of plan B program. Again people it won’t work. For the most part with some subjects we don’t learn from words but from experiences. Unfortunately by then it’s often too late.

Might I suggest the next time you’re facing that get on board scenario instead of getting angry why not ask them what’s their thoughts on a plan B. Sit back listen but don’t interrupt. When their done and if at that time it’s obvious there is no real plan other than it can’t happen in your country at that moment of time you had better start grabbing that previously mentioned helm or your headed for trouble… Real serious trouble!

Personally I can assure you that after it’s too late to do anything these personalities almost always reverse it back on the source of origin (that’s YOU) and finally admit YOU WERE RIGHT SO FIX IT! Of course you know by then it’s already too late to organize anything. That’s about the time when the statement you’d expect from the uninformed comes bursting out of their mouth. Well if we can’t do anything about it what good would all you’re planning have done to begin with?

Right about then is when the informed one in the relationship feels like using one of those stored bullets. The only decision left is on whom do they use it? A fair percentage of my readers can relate to this and judging from your emails I sense the frustration. You just have to grab hold of the helm yourself. When everyone’s not on the same page you have to be the leader and grab hold there is no other way of avoiding going down with the family ship.

Hanging on for a snooze. No problem with the traffic cop by you Eh?

I can personally relate to that analogy as that’s exactly what my Grandfather did Pre WW2. Kicking and screaming my Grandmother agreed to leave Poland only after he said “this is the only time I’ve ever said this. If you don’t join me I’m going without you” With spiteful tears and a lot of resentment she went with him. Five short years later out of 168 family members they were the only two that survived. Often I’ve thought about perhaps that’s where my desire of understanding trends originated from. He understood what grabbing hold of the helm meant. It’s a cold shitty job but someone has to have the stones to do it and I’m glad he did or I wouldn’t be here now.

As hard as it can be for some forget about fighting for an idea. Real freedom is taking your life and living it every day not being fearful of it every day that’s meritocracy at best but it’s not living. We’re all going to eventually die but so many of us spend most of their lives fearing it. Get over it! Stop wasting your time conversing about who the better party is. Republican Democrat what difference does it make? Deep down below the surface all they really are is separate cheeks off of the same ass. Get over it!

The goat doesn't speak a word of Spanish so it's pretty cool they'll get away with it.

Almost everything you’re currently beholding is tilted in favor of one corporate entity or another. Get over it! When police more closely resemble the military including the right to shoot at will and greater than 50 percent of the population still think this is for their own protection… some even go as far as linking this to freedom??? Get over it! You ain’t changing anything with that mentality. Best off to leave and view the carnage from afar.

In closing we would like add one last comment.  We HOPE THAT YOU'RE ALL ENJOYING YOUR FREEDOM. WE SURE ARE.

Lastly when almost everything you do eat or put into your body is closely monitored by these same corporate entities you had better start scratching you head and acting fast or quite frankly you ass is cooked. It seems in the eyes of the controlling powers you’re being treated like a child who can’t yet take care of yourself. Sadly it’s apparent more and more are falling victim to this habit of belief and for some is appearing to be true.

Oh Yea almost forgot you being treated as if you aren’t smart enough to make any of your own decisions until it comes time for you to vote. Then and only then you’re temporarily transformed into a grown up independent thinking machine and if you chose to believe that… Then you’re the one who closely resembles the ass by voting on what cheek you think is best. Remember the same promises come out of the middle of every ass. I thought I’d post some pictures that give a good view of what freedom means to me. Until next time this is Barry in DR.

Great article Barry!! If you don’t mind I may have to steal that 2 cheeks metaphor -LOL. I’ve definitely been guilty of Assuming that people want to be informed.
That Goat pic never gets old! Look forward to seeing you in Jan!
Thanks!!

Amen brother!

You hit this one on the bullseye Barry… Very well said and appropriate for our day and time. I happen to be one of those who are taking the helm on my own because others in my family don’t agree. I’m encouraged by your words…I hope others will do the same and not let self denial get the best of them. Keep up the good work!

Barry December 25, 2014 at 5:31 pm

Thanks Wayne. Happy holidays. Texting you from out in the mountains. Enjoying with the folks. Like I mentioned its a thankless job but the one who gathers the information better take the helm on this one. Sometimes you want things that you just don’t believe and other times you believe things that you don’t want. Both are a misalignment to your natural well being. My desire is that more folks come to understand this.
