Living in Freedom Everyday


Dream Alchemist’s Book Review

By Maria Mar



Author: Kenneth Brown with Patrick Borders


Book: L.I.F.E: Living in Freedom Everyday! Six Principles for Successful Living


“To live in freedom, we each must have faith, vision, purpose and passion. In addition, we must take ownership of our lives and associate ourselves with people who will lift us up and not keep us down.”


Kenneth Brown

L.I.F.E.

Living in Freedom Everyday

Six Principles for Successful Living




With this common-sense, down-to-earth system, Kenneth Brown delivers a book that helps you to take ownership of your life, to seek and find your own
blueprint for life. He then teaches you how to use these six simple, but profound principles to activate this blueprint in your daily life. Kenneth delivers his promise.



If you like real life success stories, common sense counsel and a good use of bible wisdom, you will love Kenneth Brown’s book, L.I.F.E: Living in Freedom Everyday! Six Principles for Successful Living.



Ken’s book endeavors to answer this question: “Why is it that so many of us are enslaved to the events of life, while others, like Tawana, are able to live in freedom?” (Tawana is a woman whom Kenneth met at a conference. Lacking both arms and hands, she is a successful woman, wife and leader and a
person living in freedom. That’s just one of the many stories with which Kenneth regales his readers.)



In his book, Kenneth proceeds to answer this question with real life stories, acute observations and bible quotes.


Here are some of my favorite L.I.F.E’s
bites of wisdom:

  • Life, as it turns out, is an inside job. Joy is an inside job.

  • With vision ~spiritual vision that is~ we can see the invisible and do the impossible.

  • Passion manifests itself in boundless enthusiasm.

  • Ownership is about doing all you can, with all you have, from the place you are.

  • When we own up to our lives, we don’t indulge in blaming others. We assume 100 percent responsibility for our thoughts and actions.

  • We become the people we hang with.

  • Faith is the currency of God’s kingdom.


Kenneth has a way of telling biblical stories in a light that
illuminates how intrinsically human they were and how they still apply to our everyday life and human conflicts.



Even though I am not Christian, I enjoyed his bible stories. He retells them to shed light in our own doubts, fears and struggles. As he does this, God’s ancient words come back to life and become once again relevant.



An example of this is his retelling of the story of Moses and his twelve leaders. God had parted the sea and provided them with food during the long journey from Egypt, Kenneth reminds us. Yet upon seeing the fortified cities and the political strength of Canaan, the leaders lost faith. Ken says, “Instead of entering the land of promise, they desired to return to the land of slavery. They desired to return to their comfort zone.” That immediately hits home!



As a master storyteller does, Kenneth weaves case studies and biblical stories to show us how we give away our power to negative expectations, fear, hunger for acceptance, habits and other inner enemies that destroy us and our purpose. He then presents simple shifts of perception, again backed up by stories and real life scenarios that help us release see our circumstances anew.


“We must choose between fear and
faith, because one of those will control our thoughts. Our thoughts control our words. Our words control our actions. Our actions control our character, and our character controls our destiny.”

In speaking about the influence of associations and emotionally toxic environments, Kenneth says: “When people don’t remove themselves from hopeless environments, they lose the energy to play the game of life.”



Kenneth has the ability to see great lessons in daily situations, like when he took his son to a Michigan game and saw how “the spirits of more than 100,000 screaming fans” rose and fell depending on the efforts of the players on the field.” He then sees this as a metaphor for how many people live. “In life everyday, just like in that game, people attach themselves to
the dreams of others. They do it in their careers and in their families. Instead of seeking the peace and joy of living a life of freedom, they pursue happiness through other people.”



If you want to feed your faith so that you can climb mountains and reach your dreams, I highly recommend that you devour this book!

Dance with the Music of Life

Hi, beautiful sisters and brothers,

In this 3-part blogging series, I reflect on the rhythms of our lives. I use three popular rhythms or experiences of music to help you explore how you can entrain with the music of life. By bringing yourself into harmony with that music, you are able to stop rushing, pushing and grating against the grain of time. Instead, you can begin to flow effortlessly towards your dreams, living fully and joyfully.

The first part, entitled “Soul Means Deep, Slow and Close to the Heart,” examines the obsessive-compulsive addiction with time and goals that keeps us alienated from our deepest personal truth and from the compass of our BodySoul. In this part, I use the rhythm of Soul, not only Soul as  the music genre, but other soulful rhythms such as Cante Jondo (Flamenco) and Bolero, to help you slow down and reach deep into yourself to enrich your experience of the present.

In the second part, entitled “Salsa Means Spice,” I remind you that life is to be lived in the now, to be enjoyed physically, to be danced with passion. I invite you to give yourself permission to be happy. Nothing like Salsa to get you laughing, moving your hips and enjoying the spontaneity of your being-in-joy. Step up to the pulse of life!

In the third part, entitled “Waltz Through Walls,” I reveal how the subtle power of harmony, embodied by Waltz, can free the vast force of your Infinite True Self, who is one with the Universe. I give you some steps to dissolve the illusion we call “obstacles.” I also let you know how waltzing through life expands your grace, allowing you to float effortlessly with the flow of affluence, with the winds of love.

Stay tune. I’ll post links to the three parts here, as I publish them:

Part 1: Soul Means Deep, Slow and Close to the Heart

Part 2: Salsa means Spice

Part 3: Waltz Through Walls

Light and love,

Maria Mar
