My meaning of the word воля (freedom) is basically if you are free, you have the power to do and acomplish anything you want in life. For a couple of years living in the U.S. I didnt have my papers and i couldnt go to school, I couldnt work, I couldnt drive I basically couldnt do anything. That was a very hard time of my life because I felt like I wasnt going anywhere. I didnt have the freedom to grow. The day I got my freedom, was probably one of the hapiest days of my life. A whole world of possibilities has opened up to me.
The word is also incorporated in the national Ukrainian symbol and it has a lot of meaning to the Ukrainian culture. The Statue of Liberty represents freedom in the American culture. Its nice to know that the country that I’m from and the country that Im living in today, both stay strong for the word freedom.
The word freedom brings me pure clarity. It opens the door to other vast words like, choose, balance peace, hope, joy. It dissolves form creates infinite possibilities. Freedom is transformational. Its spirit mobilizing free will, propelling the whole self forward into being.
