Not to be confused with the term “Freedom is slavery”, I shared my own original quote in 2014 concerning why slavery is freedom.  It is a conscience decision to give over control to another in order to find peace, purpose and fulfillment with one’s own life.

This became very popular on social media sites like Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.  It became popular for a reason.  Many identified with the concept.  It spoke to them.

Religion has the same purpose and goal.  So does fundamentalist, extremist and racist ideologies.  They all fail miserably when not taking the needs and wants of the individual into consideration.  They become a simple band aid instead of a solution.  One should always search within themselves first before seeking “freedom”.  Knowing your purpose is innate.  No matter how confused you feel about your life,  you always know what you need.  Sometimes, all you need is a little help in finding “clarity”.

I’ll share a very enlightening definition of the “new age” meaning of “slavery” (as it should pertain to this Lifestyle)…
