Bad blogger!

I very much doubt anyone reads here any more due to the distinct lack of posts, I'm clearly a terrible blogger and I'm all out of inspiration! Any thoughts on what I should blog about?

At the moment, I'm being very inspired by:
"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galations 5v1

What do you think it means to be really free?

I have you on my blog reader so when you do post something, I know about it and I come over and have a look!

Freedom... since I started my holiday from believing in God (nearly 5 years ago - at what point should I just give up?) one think I have really enjoyed is feeling free to think what I like without being obligated to any party line.

Traditionally there are two types of freedom - 'freedom from' and 'freedom to'. My freedom above is a freedom from, I think - freedom from restrictions - more than a freedom to. Do you think some people value one type more than the other?

I think that feeling obligated to update your blog probably doesn't count as freedom.

Freedom means not only being free to decide for yourself, on what matters in your life, having an *Internal Locus of Control*, but also being free from external pressure in HOW you decide. Free from being determined in your decisions by fashion, tradition, authority, bias, assumptions, and living by the light of your own conscious reasoning, which is doing it FOR but not simply BY yourself - since others can offer fruitful insights, experiences, ideas for your process of self-determination. Such a conscious, personal process I would term *Logo-nomy* [ not mere Auto-nomy ], echoing Viktor Frankl [ *Mans Search for Meaning* ] and his *Logo-therapy* [where the search for meaning is crucial to health and fulfilment.
