Free people have a lightness of being.
They move more easily through life
because they're not bogged down
with tons of bags + triggers.
The secret to their freedom, is decisiveness.
Decide. Decaedere (Latin). "cut off."
Measure twice. Then cut.
Distraction. Illusion. Self-doubt.
Extreme liberation calls for extreme focus.
And release. Which requires, cutting.
Snip, snip. Daddy-o.
Lift things up, or out you go.
We find, and experience, freedom
by clearing away its opponents.

The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
