👣BEING TRULY FREE IS TERRIFYING👣 • 👣Are you a prisoner of your own mind? A prisoner of your own body? The confines of civilization are keeping us from being out true, authentic selves.👣 • 👣We are no different from any other animal on this planet when it comes with the deep urge to be truly free. And how exactly is it that we access and express that freedom? MOVEMENT👣 • 👣Our true, wild nature is overflowing in children who have not been overly familiarized with the ways of civilization. Watch their urge to move and play anywhere they are, and you can't help but admire—even envy—their reckless abandon.👣 • 👣Go and find any video of caged animals being freed for the first time. What do they do? It's terrifying for them to see the massive world outside their cage, but once they gather the COURAGE to explore and MOVE, their excitement and wonder is indisputable.👣 • 👣We are all caged within our own minds and within each of our own unique, civilized cultures. Whenever we take a glimpse at the world outside of our cages, most of us become terrified and recoil back to "safety"—not realizing our own prison.👣 • 👣 What we view as "child-like wonder" isn't really just for children. It's not even actually "child-like". It's HUMAN-like. It's how we truly express our freedom, and is most notable through our movement (or lack thereof). Unfortunately we ONLY see this quality in children now, but every child or adult has that capacity and should never be separated from it.👣 • 👣 It's sad, but in our globalized culture today, it takes immense courage to make just about any decision that aligns with our true selves for fear of being different. Choose to MOVE away from that. Embrace novelty, embrace yourself—every bit of yourself, embrace every bit of those around you, and do not be ashamed. Make the DECISION. I know it's scary, but what's the worst that could happen? Freedom?👣 . . . 📸:@cristinathephotog . . . . . .

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. #descansogardens#gardens#humannature#life#rosegardens#green#roses#stopandsmelltheroses#smile
