The Way to Freedom !!

Many of us are born free.,. But as time goes on, we allow our freedom to be super-ceded by other priorities and the end result being we end up being slaves in many sense.I dont mean in the physical sense, i mean in the mental realm.,. Excepting a few people, many of the remaining are so much engrossed in the Rat Race that only a few realize its trap.,. Hence they go on with the race for the rest of their lives oblivious to the limitation they have put forth in their life.,.

For once, Ask any child what he wants to be and he has so many dreams and aspirations.,. The same individual when he grows up becomes so programmed by the society and gets to believe in his limitation as set forth by the society.,. There have been some Beacon Lights all along, people who inspire people to live to their fullest, People whose life serve as a role model for others to emulate and unleash their own potential.,

Being Successful in Life is not only being financially independent, nor being highly acclaimed.,. The real secret is in balancing the various spheres of our life.,. There are so called 5 spheres of life which should be aligned in our life.,.They are our,
  • Career
  • Family Life
  • Health
  • Social Life
  • Spritual Development
When these five spheres are aligned with "YOU", the more harmoniuous our life becomes.,. The reason Iam sharing this with you is, I came across a tool to measure our extent of alignment with these spheres. The site,* has two tools which i found interesting.,. One is the Meta Analysis and The Vision Driver.,

THE META-ANALYSIS reveals insights into the way you live your life and helps you to coordinate your life to your values and vision. It has a five step interactive experience which helps to develop our ability to achieve long- and short-term goals.

THE VISION DRIVER reveals insight into the way you use your vision and helps you to coordinate every circumstance in your life to your values and inner-needs. It has a similar six step interactive experience which helps to actualise both long- and short-term goals.

The best part is the tools are currently free so.,. I had taken the exercise and got to know some new insights as well as new perspectives.,. I wont claim it will change your life for ever, as we are the ONLY masters of our Life. What will happen is our life's journey a bit more illuminated and a better chance to realize our untested potential in our lifes.,.

We have a long way to go.,. As Barbara Cook says,

If you're able to be yourself, then you have no competition. All you have to do is get closer and closer to that essence.

* Freedom's Way is dedicated to helping you increase your wellbeing and self-awareness through a new kind of online experience. Our interactive tools energize you by helping you to both center and awaken your vision. They can enhance your inner life, relationship, work, family, and community, plus track your development over the coming years.

Iam also glad to share that the Person behind the Freedom Way will be sharing his insights in the PERFECT SHOW very soon.,. He is been considered as "The Philosopher of this Age"...
Eager to share more learnings in coming days !! :)

God Bless.

@priya: Yes dear, Paulo Coehlho said,

“What’s the world’s greatest lie?” the boy asked. “It’s this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.”

As long as we understand that.,.
