What is real freedom?

Many of us struggle with being free. What is real freedom? Is it freedom to make your own decisions without input from others? Is it financial freedom? Freedom from having to work at a 9 to 5 job every day? Freedom to create? Freedom from personal demons? Living free in a free land? Is freedom the space to believe in whatever you want and say it out loud without fear of retribution or judgement? Is it knowing that others can also be free, or having the freedom to help others? Is freedom pursuing education, becoming educated, having the resources or support to pursue education?  Does freedom change as you achieve it? Is it elusive?

What is your dream of freedom? Close your eyes and imagine what life would feel like, look like, be like with this freedom achieved. If you are an artist, draw it or compose it. If you are a writer, describe it. Say it. More than anything, feel it, in your heart and imagine it in your mind. Believe it can happen.
