What is a Free Spirit?

Are you a free spirit? Do you know one when you meet one?

You feel filled up by the true free spirit, because their free. They demand no price, they extract no price, and you fill to over flowing. They are people who radiate free energy, released from their own connection with grace and kindness.

Not to be confused with:
These are people of charm and some cleverness. Freeloaders, though are people who just deplete the energy of those around them, usually with a degree of self-centered drama.

They often find themselves in this state from the desire to be free. There's just a bit of difference, but what a difference it makes! A person who lives in consideration of others as well as one's self will continue to draw support and goodness; everything that comes your way, appreciate it.

This pitfall of self righteousness, then, is the one closest to the perfect life and the liver of life. What fear of death would make us need more perfection, than the life found living in the free spirit?

What is a free spirit?

Herein, we have TEN answers:

It's the shot of whiskey that guy buys you when he thinks you're hot! LOL Couldn't resist.

No, no, looking for anyone's answer. May I quote you?

Harley Coro: But of course my friend. :)
A free spirit is the light that shines from a fire fly's butt when he is released from the Mason jar.
Then she told me to think of a bank, depositing one dollar for every good thing of which I think, and taking away a dollar in balance for all thoughts of ills.

"The short version off the top of my head - Someone who is unburdened by ideology, prejudice or fear. Someone who lives in the moment, rather than worrying too much about the future that may or may not come. Someone who isn't self-centered, but in the same breath unentangled by the workings of others. One other thing: resistant to the negativity of others. " ---the man in the JOE chair

"A free spirit is some one who is willing to let go!" ---Bali

John T. Beray had this answer, in a song he wrote:

"i suppose someone who is not as hindered as the masses by social mediocrity in direct reference to taste, views, and creativity. a free-er thinker than the norm, perhaps.

Not as propelled to conformity."

" A non-captured spirit? nah hahah :)
I would say say someone who dwell in themselves, have their own opinions and make their own decisions :)" --Dark Poet, who said Lueticon knows him well.

"Hmm. Someone who does what they enjoy, without seeking external validation for their choices and actions, but tries not to harm anyone while doing so," said the Ray upon the Red Stone.

"One who truly does not give a damn what others think. One who moves through life succeeding or failing on his own terms, the only ones that truly matter. It does NOT mean one who says 'fuggit' to his responsibilities - that spirit will eventually find itself imprisoned by circumstance - but one who decides for himself what is truly important and acts accordingly." Thus spake the Golden Day.

"Hmm. One that is not bound by restrictions? Physical, emotional, worldy, otherworldly." ---a lady whose name is literally in the stars (on a satellite)

A free spirit is someone who marches to the beat of her own drum, despite what anyone else thinks about it. She dances to the off key songs in her head, even if it gathers raised eyebrows from envious, trapped inside their own self created walls, onlookers. She is led by a light that perhaps only she sees to a place full of rainbows and cotton candy. She regularly stops in the middle of the road to trespass and pick flowers blooming in the field. She lives and loves fully, without regret, drinking in all that life has to offer, as one would a delicious wine, free flowing from the fountain of youth! Scarlet Dragon #9

There are some beautiful ideas on "Free Spirit."

Free spirits are always at the heart of the stories of my very own I've been gifted with. I realize that, looking at these replies, I blessed myself with numerous friends I could trust with thoughts, and if I take a gracious amount of their time only when necessary, the copious beauty of what we each are to everyone in our lives opens a range for compassion that should enable me to write about any sort of worthwhile human thought for all my days.

I hope these answers were refreshing to you, though. The work of freeing one's spirit is an ongoing process. Take these thoughts, these facets, with you always. Come back and see us here again if you ever need a reminder.
