This week our focus is directed toward the memory of those who have died to secure our freedoms. It seems appropriate spiritually to also remember our individual and personal losses of freedom. Typically this includes aspects of the Self that were repressed to survive our beginnings and the various disabilities that later prevent their recovery. A wonderful metaphor for this experience is the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. Little by little he loses his natural body which is replaced by metal. So much so, that he loses his heart and cannot move without the help of others. In reality, he has a strong sense of cooperation and love, but needs an infusion of self-confidence to be awakened. His movement is made possible by a lubricant that ‘unsticks’ his frozen posture. Tune in this week as we discuss the source of this lubricant and the significance of being dis-membered to re-member. Coming into the world able to love but inadvertently ‘cursed’ or distracted away from our original gifts, we forget. Losing our ability to manipulate the environment and having restricted freedoms, we develop a false self. Finally, because we think nothing is left of our original intent, we feel detached from our hearts. Tune in this week and re-member as we discuss why such experiences are necessary for our spiritual growth.
