In the context of freedom, there are 3 kinds of people: (1) The Enslaved, (2) The Supposedly Free & (3) The Truly Free.
The Enslaved has responsibilities; and so does The Supposedly Free and The Truly Free.
The Enslaved has his responsibilities tied to his slave master.
The Supposedly Free has his responsibilities tied to his illusion of supposed freedom.
The Truly Free has his responsibilities tied to his conscience.
The kind of freedom many humans are searching for doesn’t exist and that is the reason they haven’t found it yet. Many are looking for freedom without responsibility and accountability. It is non-existent. For every freedom, there’s always a person or group of persons who paid the price. The recipients have the responsibility of maintaining the lifeform and relevance of such freedom.
At a certain age, a young man is free (or supposed to be free) from the apron strings of his mother as he is ushered into the life of being held accountable for his decisions.
From the day of independence, a nation is made free from (or expected to be made free from) colonialism and thrusted into the four walls of the responsibilities of self-determination.
At Redemption, we were freed from sin and translated into the domain of righteous responsibility.
There’s no such state in life where you’re free from a limiting position and then left hanging without responsibilities in the current state of freedom.
The mindset of freedom without responsibilties only gives birth to lifelong dependants. (I’m referring to people who depend on others with no tangible excuse for doing so.)
There’s no such thing as FREEDOM WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY.
There’s no such thing as FREEDOM FROM RESPONSIBILITY.
Every freedom comes with its own set of responsibilities.
The responsibilities you’re willing to take determines the quality of life you will get to live…the live of The Enslaved, The Supposedly Free or The Truly Free.
