FULL RAW TRANSCRIPT OF THIS EPISODE:
[00:31:10] Curt Mercadante: Okay. The word freedom. Yeah. And people like to take that word and use it for their own sometimes on the level on the material plane, right. Or the political plane only. What does that word freedom mean to you?
[00:31:24] Dr. Alison J. Kay: So visually intuitively I just saw jumping out of a plane, which I've done. Um,
[00:31:36] I talk about this word a lot too,
[00:31:41] where I want to go with this is in response to something you said earlier in our conversation in that you were talking about, and it was so great of an example, and I'm so grateful to Curt for bringing in the perspective of tribalism in group sports jerseys. That was a great metaphor. Uh, where am I going with this?[00:32:00]
[00:32:01] The idea of what does he threatened? So many people and cause people to hold back, making a choice that they really want to make that will get them for your and more joyous. Cause I think that those are intertwined when I see somebody's body's saying, or my own elevate with joy, that's a sense of freedom.
[00:32:19] That's part of the definition, I think because freedom is some kind of elevation and joy as a factor in that. I see people stop themselves when they're concerned about what others will think. And of course you hear this and intellectually like, yeah, I don't do that. I don't care what people think, but really, you know, I mean, I spend a lot of time running clearings on people who are concerned about what will they think.
[00:32:43] If I come out of the spiritual closet, who will I lose in my life? What will I have to give up in my life? What will these people think of me? And especially the ostracizing. And I don't even think it has to apply to spirituality. You know, if we just take all religions and just group it in the [00:33:00] word spirituality, it's where people access their spirit.
[00:33:04] I, I just feel like historically there have been so many times in our culture where particularly in the west, like Galileo got shut down. When somebody has been speaking truth of what they see, the shutdown that happens. And in particularly ostracization of four and four, which is an intuitive use. And once the enlightenment era hit getting rid of the supernatural and getting everything logical and reasoned out and explained, I had a guy in England tell me, he thinks that they're over, we've become overly rational.
[00:33:36] We need more bring in more of the mystical again. So freedom for me is freedom beyond the thinking and the. Oh, I in coming from that and caring what other people think it's really feeling the sense of you're in this body and you're in this life for you as a soul and your connection to the divine and letting yourself make whatever choices are required in order to honor that in, in, involved in grow and live a lighter, [00:34:00] happier, increasingly more joyous, abundant, healthier.
