Pagan Playlist: Ajeet – Quiet (Live In The Garden)
“Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.”
— Stephen Covey
A Greek myth can help us understand the freedom that comes with power of choice.
In the Underworld, Sisyphus was condemned to roll a large stone up a hill from which it always rolled down again. Realistically, he was trapped in an endless cycle of rolling the stone. When he perceived himself to be imprisoned by the curse, he was a victim.
At one point, however, he turned the tables — he changed his mind and decided to CHOOSE to roll the stone up the hill. In doing so, he empowered himself and defused the curse.
“Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.”
— Jean-Paul Sartre
“One cannot make a slave of a free person, for a free person is free even in a prison.”

“What is your need to eat the seed,
When growth might be so sweet?”
-Ann Wickham, 1915
Ah, this sounds almost like an offer, doesn’t it? Maybe we have a choice – instant, yet temporary satisfaction now – or a more long-lasting and genuine appreciation if we but wait a little bit. Patience brings its own rewards. When we are children, we want everything NOW! It is difficult for us to sit still and wait for anything. But as the years go by, we understand that some things are worth the wait. We begin to put great value on patience.
