The 'FreeZone' Roller Coaster Ride

After a tumultuous roller coaster ride through history, what else can a collection of ‘spiritual teammates’ do, but to foment a desire to just get off and take a rest.

Well, the rest is here.

But it is only breathing room. Like any roller coaster ride, it’s always there, ready and waiting to start up again. Until one becomes wise to indicators and actions, the roller coaster ride will NEVER end. It takes more than ‘breathing room’, to stop the ups and downs, it takes a sense of self-responsibility.

The ‘FreeZone’ has been marketed as a ‘power ride’, and a ‘power ride’ it is. On the upswing, a great sense of achievement and ‘power’ is felt and the elation becomes will worth the shallow dips. On the down swing, one becomes the effect of the ‘power’ sought and in the depths of despair, the memory of elation helps to turn the tide, or so it is hoped.

Up, down. Up, down.

Hiding in the shadow of the roller coaster, many in the ‘FreeZone’ continue on with their self-appointed tasks. Collecting good will and cash, these become the bargaining chips for the ‘power’ ride.

Sneaking behind closed doors, ‘clearing’ takes place.

Is it any wonder that the gains achieved always falls short of ‘the promised land’? You cannot become free while being bound.

The ‘FreeZone’ is now in hiding, as it should be. The shadows hiding in the shadows, promising daylight. It doesn’t work that way and never will.

Some go to the carnival for the thrill of the rides. Some have no use for the carnival at all.

It’s called an incomplete OT 2.

Are you enjoying living it out in the ‘FreeZone’?
