The Freedom

Written by Dave Rothacker on August 25, 2020

Why do we call the Starship, the Starship Freedom?

In order to live our purpose, we must be who we really are.

That’s confusing. Aren’t we are who we are?

Here’s an example from my life. I spent over 25 years in HVAC management doing tactical things. I am not, nor was I ever, a manager at heart. I am a strategist, an explorer and a guide. Although today, I believe that experience along with my effort to self-educate, contributes to what I have to offer, I spent all those years trapped in a tactician’s body.

With the exception of what I was learning and the positive things I accomplished together with technicians, it was stifling, oxygen-depleting and soul-crushing. And it was all of my doing. I couldn’t figure out how to escape the prison of my own making (and still pay my bills).

So, as far as the day job was concerned I was a manager. But that’s not who I truly was.

The Freedom to be Ourselves

When one makes the decision to board the Freedom, they do so with the intent to be themselves. We do not use social masks.

Purpose Work

Richard J. Leider says:

Our purpose is the essence of who we are and what makes us unique. Our purpose is an active expression of the deepest dimension within us – where we have a profound sense of who we are and why we’re here.

Martha Beck says:

The truth we need to be free is the reality of our own life.

One doesn’t go out into the world to discover their purpose. Our purpose has been growing inside since our late teens. Purpose work involves looking inside, excavating and uncovering our past. There we will find who we truly are.

Your Freedom

I describe the Starship Freedom as a mindset that I engage the world through. I hope you consider using one of your own. When you do, you absolutely should do so with the intention of being who you really are.

As Roger Daltry sings:

I’m free, I’m free. And freedom tastes of reality. I’m free, I’m free. And I’m waiting for you to follow me.

When you are authentic and living your truth, you are a human being, not a human doing.
