The outward freedom . . that we shall attain, will be only in exact proportion to the inward freedom to which we may have grown at a given moment.” Gandhi. The Essential Gandhi,
Anarchy …in the age where everybody wants to rule, the very concept of it , the taste of it , the smell of it, is considered the most feared , and the most conveted by many. After all , total anarchy would mean an existance without a structure, no one to answer to, no hierachy …just complete and total freedom to create whatever it is you want in the world.
its a total to surrender to your inner voice and personal integrity as a guide in all aspects and areas in life. By nature, we as humans are born into this world, with this innate freedom of choice …we call free will .. But somewhere along through our daily experiences, relationships, environments , etc, we are naturally begin to integrate within a structure of life, not necessarily by choice, but just because it is perceived as essential to our survival ..until we come of age, and we start to outgrow the constraints of the structure because they arent relavent to the lives that we are already creating or wish to create.And thus Anarchy ensues…
Sometimes its that exciting door of opportunity, that opens wide for you to explore and revel in …a new discovery, a new way of looking at things, new friends, etc
Sometimes it can mean hitting rock bottom, losing everything …and finding a way to rebuild your life from the ground up., a harsh lesson , yet an opening to reinvent and create. ..
As Artists, we all thrive on this concept…., we start to crave Anarchy, thinking outside of the box, outside of establishment, for the sake of innovation and progression, and complete freedom of expression and consciously or subconsciously draw energies towards us that nurtures our need to grow.
There is something to be said for understanding the science of structure , knowledge is power. And the more knowledge that you allow yourself to absorb, the more you enable yourself with the freedom to go in any direction you desire , and you can envision the possibilities that are open to you …
However, too much structure , too much authoritarian pursuits, too much hierarchy too much science can be crippling to ones growth and perception of all the vast possibilities the world has to offer, and what you have to offer to it….
Surrender to your self, your voice, your heart to your own authority, and own integrity….a door of limtless potential awaits …
“True morality consists not in following the beaten track, but in finding out the true path for ourselves and in fearlessly following it.” Gandhi.
