Free as a dandelion

dandelion freedom

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.  –  Thich Nhat Hanh

I smile. I breathe. I am free.

This quote has been on my mind and in my heart for a long time and the dandelion photo I took reminded me of it. It is something that inspires me while I aspire to the freedom. May it inspire you too.

Smile. Breathe. Free.

  1. Hi MssD

    Thanks for the dandelion photo, I love dandelions. When we were children we used to love picking them and blowing on them and watching the tiny umbrellas carrying their seeds away.

    I always thought dandelions were weeds, but when I became interested in herbs and alternative medicines I discovered that they are a powerful liver remedy. I know that you know this, but just wanted to share.

    You also know that we love to share sayings and quotes. One of my favourites is by Nelson Mandela, he said ” Be kinder than you need to be, because you never know what people are going through.”

    Which is ironic as it mentions the ‘Kind’ word, and as you also know ‘kind’ is a 4 letter word.

    You have only been gone 24 hrs and I had comms with you not even 12hrs ago, and I miss you already.

    Freedom, is our right, but it’s also a privilege mdfD enjoy it.

    Luv yssGilli

    • My ssGilli,

      Thank you for sharing about dandelions. We also used to pick them to blow them away as kids, along with daisies whenever we found them. I love the quote you shared – my gratitude for reminding me. It is important to take a broader view and act with compassion. Not always easy, like kindness, but definitely worth it.

      Quite correct, freedom is our right and a privilege, this I will hold onto in my heart.

      I too am missing our comms but our connection remains 🙂

      Love and light

  2. It is a late reply, I know. When I saw the title of this new post and your magnificent photo I smiled and extremely happy to know that you came to this before I gave words to your freedom, I told you ‘Yes, you are a free soul Delicia’. And I felt the impulse to reply immediately with these words, but the moment I did I felt I needed to be with this for a little longer. So I let this be, and I listened to my heart.

    In the last weeks of June I wanted to invite you to free yourself simply by feeling your freedom. Yes, we are privileged enough to be free, so it is up to us to live our freedom. No easy task, I know! We always make it more complicated than simplicity of most relevant truths 😉 . So this post brought me back to this quote

    If I am really a part of your dream, you’ll come back one day – Paulo Coelho

    These words have been with me since I shared them with you the moment you were flying to the opposite side of the planet. I had accidentally run into them, but I know it was meant! During this time I felt with absolute certainty what before I knew with the mind. And that is, nothing that is really important for us will ever be lost. We are often afraid of taking new directions, or of going far away, thinking that we might lose connection. What I have learnt is that if something is worth it will survive, if someone is important connection will be there. Even more than this. Distance lets us appreciate what we cannot have every day. Distance brings new ways of being, exploring, sharing and living together. It can be hard, but only if we set free, we truly love. And with that love, allowing the space and the experiences that are necessary to water our relationships, we get so much closer than it would have never been possible if remaining near. So today I have something important to add to my list of Inspired gratefulness. I am grateful for the moments we spent together but also for this extraordinary time at completely opposite sides of the planet!

    Trust yourself Delicia, trust your journey! Do not ask for too long Which way? You can be sure that what is important not only will remain but grow. Unconditional love sets free. I let you go, knowing I will walk with you, and so happy to know and to feel you are a free soul, nurturing your love in such a special way. Namaste.

    • Wow, thank you for your thoughts and wishes Annalisa. As always divine timing and I appreciate you sharing it all with me in this space. Freedom is indeed a magic thing and one has to set free in order to see what remains. Gratitude for this gentle reminder. I hope you will enjoy the walk with me on the other side of the planet. 🙂 Namaste
