Before I state my definition I would like to read yours. I would like to make it YOUR buzz.....
#8 All things are plausible Peter. Open your heart, open your mind, and keep opening and opening and opening, that's all you have to do. And since no one can tell me where the thoughts of other writers come from, I will quote someone else for you and say to you, you have all your answers. Just be you. HUGS! "Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom.

#7 Great @Melissa Hefferman. Yes, I decided to take no more negative shit from anybody. Not fighting it anymore though.I used to do that. Stupid me, fighting is always negative.I will still take no more negative shit. Nor will I answer to it with the same shit.I am beginning to realize that is is possible to care and love, without giving up freedom.The next thing to realize is that in stead of giving up freedom , you gain freedom, just by caring, loving, sharing and giving.So at this point I can no longer say anymore, that society is virtual crap and stupid. Ah, well. I won't miss that thought.Freedom is not doing what you want while others are forced to work for what you want.Freedom is loving and thus respecting life. Including loving and respecting yourself.I think I can spent a lifetime finding the balance. Can it be THE meaning of life? Real freedom? A balance of live and let live?Not an easy goal and thus plausible?
#6 Oh Peter. We will. We already are. My Heart belongs to the Arts which I perceive to have the greatest possibility to awaken consicousness since the Arts encourages thinking and feeling for oneself, not telling someone what to think and feel, but business equally needs its leaders and there are clearly some brilliant ones on a site like this. To me though, it's about one Life, one moment, and one day, at a time. We are all perfectly imperfect blossoming beings. And every Soul I find who is there increases my hope, every Soul I find who is not, I hug or imagine hugging them if they clearly aren't ready for one. Here's a coincidence for you; I rocked the message of Freedom at a Dive Bar last night and then woke up to a notification from you on this post about Freedom. Keep the Faith and dance and SING!!! Life is meant to be lived. :) https://ello.co/melissadawn/post/fzspykg75q23ylgw566u6a
Yeah. If we could all only....I still have trouble not to force it...Thanks for being there too @Melissa HeffermanMaybe you, me and a increasing amount of other humans will rock this world.
#4 I will add, All Life. And statement one implied there would be additions and I'm smiling because I see we believe and have found the same.... David Foster Wallace would have given us a high five: "...And the world will not discourage you from operating on your default-settings, because the world of men and money and power hums along quite nicely on the fuel of fear and contempt and frustration and craving and the worship of self. Our own present culture has harnessed these forces in ways that have yielded extraordinary wealth and comfort and personal freedom. The freedom to be lords of our own tiny skull-sized kingdoms, alone at the center of all creation. This kind of freedom has much to recommend it. But of course there are all different kinds of freedom, and the kind that is most precious you will not hear much talked about in the great outside world of winning and achieving and displaying. The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day. That is real freedom. The alternative is unconsciousness, the default-setting, the "rat race"-the constant gnawing sense of having had and lost some infinite thing."
But I already found it @Melissa Hefferman.Freedom is simple to achieve. And yet so hard in our society.Freedom is to care about life. That's all.Sorry, there is nothing more to be found.There is nothing I can loose. There is much to win for all of us.I call that freedom.
#2 it's such a personal question, but granted with many universalities.. I wonder what you will find! I'll be sure to come and check and see. :)
Statement one, freedom is to care. Yes.
