We use the word freedom.
But have you thought about what it means?
Freedom is the ability to choose between good and evil.
Doing what is wrong vs. right.
Freedom only exists when we have the ability to choose evil.
We were originally created free.
We chose evil.
Freedom also includes responsibility to live w/ the consequences.
Evil = what is harmful to you or others.
Let’s use the word “bad” instead.
Choosing the bad is the exercise of your freedom.
But it leads to slavery . . . prison.
Story of cigarette smoker – 2 weeks . . . 2 years.
Some lines you cross are one-way streets.
You can choose differently.
“Change your life” by change your thoughts.
But thoughts alone won’t change you.
Your life is a result of the choices you make.
You can’t just think differently.
You have to CHOOSE different.
The trap of bad choices is they are easy.
Go with the flow.
Most choices that get you back on track to the life you want are hard ones.
Learn to make hard choices – run an ultramarathon.
That is the mindset that will give you true freedom.
Freedom – the ability to CHOOSE evil (bad).
Also, the ability to CHOOSE life – the life you want to live.
AN EPIC LIFE
