The First Step to Freedom...
Dig deep inside. Deeper than your "self-awareness". Deeper than your "deepest secrets". Deeper than your "heart" allows. When you start to arrive at the core of your existence, stay awhile. Love those shadows within and reflect on why they exist. How does one get there? It's the journey you think you are taking, but then you realize the path less traveled is the one you must walk. Look outside yourself to those along the way to guide you, open up to their experiences and allow yourself to soak up the signs. The first step to freedom lies just below the surface, it's time to crack the facade, let go and fall in love with yourself. There you will find your freedom.
