Is there an activity that is the key to your freedom?
I pose this question because I notice that every time I go to yoga, I free myself from a physical circumstance I once described as a disability.
Not only did I describe my coordination uniqueness as a disability, I believed to my core that I was a VICTIM of my disability. To me my physical disability was an unchangeable FACT, just like there’s sky above my head.
It’s very human to believe that we are the victims of our limitations or circumstances because they can seem so permanent and insurmountable. However, it is our BELIEF that our limitations are permanent that holds us captive, not the circumstances themselves.
No government or judge or prison guard can set us free from circumstances that we determine that we are captive to.
Yet with every prison cell, comes a key to open it.
A person is not obligated to find the key to his or her freedom. I was living a fine and productive life when I was certain that I was disabled.
At the same time finding the key (or more likely keys) that free us from our limitations can be an amazing adventure.
