Vrijheid is voor mij muziek maken in de breedste zin van het woord. Op het podium voel ik mij vrij
Orsaya Hertzinger-Snijders
Hi my name is Arenda, I work as a Yoga teacher in Enkhuizen. Freedom for me is being able to do what I love, what makes my heart happy. Being able to fulfill my blueprint in this life and be of service to others. But the practice of real Freedom is way more important for me. Being able to sense behind the human sensations and experience that I am more than a person inside a body. That is real Freedom for me. Not taking my thoughts seriously and seeing where they come from. Feeling that I can never get hurt, because the Awareness of what we are only knows Bliss. I don't say it's easy and I am already there, but the practice gives me the glimpses of it and makes me want more of the real Freedom inside. In my work as a Yoga teacher and organizer of retreats I take people with me on that journey to Freedom.

Freedom in its most absolute form means freedom from everything for me. Freedom from desires, needs, fears, cravings, addictions, dreams and suffering. What I read about enlightenment is the closest to that, which I have found so far. Even that concept seems so subjective that there is no ultimate truth. Through the countless unity experiences I have had, where I was in a space of no-space, a space of no-thingness, I know this exists. It is at this point for me challenging to incorporate this in every day life.

And at the same time, with all this knowledge, I feel freer than I have ever done before in my life. Freedom becomes a lifestyle. It becomes a way of living. At this moment I don’t have a house, nor a car, nor children nor a job with an employer. And I live an abundant life full of crazy experiences, beautiful connections, healthy food and lots of travel. The latter is for me the beauty. I can wake up tomorrow and decide to jump on a plane to South-America. I can stay away for 6 months if I want. There is ‘nothing’ that ties me to where I am right now. I am free.

To be your true self.

I am Janny and IAM4FREEDOM! For me, freedom is: when I have the right to live my life the way I want, as long as I respect the same rights of everyone else. The right to share your opinion; to feel free; to be without obligations; to go wherever you want to go; the feeling that no one states your behaviour; respect for each other; a necessity to give through; equality; freedom should be respected; precious; a privilege! Of course, I am posing with fake fur as I take a stand against cruelty to animals, they should be free as well!

Throughout my youthly years, in retrospect, freedom is something I seem to have taken for granted. Living in Amsterdam, feeling free is as easy as driving your bike to work or wear purple hair - if you just don't care. I love how I can go get groceries barefooted or walk without a shirt, when it is warm and I don't feel like having to overdress to impress. Wearing a skirt or make-up, wigs or long hear or even nothing at all, as nudity is another form of freedom. Then there is the freedom of dancing to well-mixed house music. Without limitations of pre-practiced choreography or any rule whatsoever on how you should dance, moving to the music of dedicated DJ’s, is yet another freedom thingy for me.

It was not until I met many Tibetan refugees in the Himalayas, that I became fully aware of the importance of freedom. Unfortunately, freedom proves not at all universal.

As a meditational coach, with MEDITATE4FREEDOM, I practice compassion towards others and help them walk the path of inner freedom (free from fear, stress, anger and so forth).

Furthermore, I feel that outer freedom (human rights & the right to be yourself) can be achieved if we all become aware of freedom and ALL unite for the common cause. As the managing director of ALL4FREEDOM, I believe I have my work cut out for me and will try to live up to my task of inspiring individuals to come and co-create the community that I'll lead to realizing a respectful, 'live and let live' freedom-filled future.

Freedom can have many different meanings to different people. To me, the ultimate feeling of freedom has to with the ability to feel free enough to completely act independently of my surroundings and do my own thing while respecting the peers around me. The freedom to dance all the way to the front of a festival like no one is watching. The freedom to explore and travel and to go on adventures whenever I please. The freedom to speak my mind. However, it is important to be aware of this privilege called ‘freedom’ which is often taken for granted by many. I wish for everyone to be and feel free, regardless of your gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference and so on.

Freedom means having a choice! A choice to talk about what you want, marry who you want, love who you want, travel to where you want, believe in what you want, have a job that you are good at and makes you happy! This is freedom, choices!
Marianne Aalders
For me it means I can do what I want when I want to, without hindering others in their freedom. Physicly it means I can ride my MTB and be a master of the trails, feeling free in the forests and fields and being one with nature while enjoying my favourite sport. It also means I fly our nations flag on Liberation Day (5th of may) to commemorate all those who gave up their freedom and their very lives to Ensure my freedom and that of my offspring. However, my freedom ends where another man's unfreedom starts: it should never be allowed to hamper another being in it's freedom. Freedom means respect for boundaries as well ...
