Fly Under the Radar

I’ve been told by many that it’s best to “fly under the radar” to avoid  any government agencies types (or anyone else for that matter) looking into my life. My parents (but mostly my father) used to tell me this a lot as I was maturing into a young man with some rebellious tendencies.  But here’s the problem,

“they” keep lowering and lowering the radar that soon there won’t be anywhere to fly freely, perhaps without written permission.

Now, I don’t consider myself a rebel, but if living my life the way I choose is rebellious in this day and age then I guess that’s the thing. Also, unlike many people, I don’t consider myself beholden to “them,” whoever they are. So I have been and will continue to live my life in accordance with a certain following of the heart harmony. But I’m not blind or deaf. I can see leaders in many countries slowly chipping away at the privileges they’ve given their people over the years. But at the same time, I cannot nor will not deny myself what honors my being in terms of, to continue the metaphor, flying high.

    As the saying goes ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ Sad phenomena of the state of this world.

      I think it’s sad that some people feel like they can take away what is inherent within all of us, but on the whole it is not sad because we have the power to do things about it, like being ourselves regardless of what “rights” we do or don’t have.

      Also, thank you for reading and commenting.
