The Way to Freedom

To paraphrase the Venerable Thich Nhat Hahn - there is no way to freedom, freedom is the way.
As I journaled this morning, looking forward to my guitar practice on this day, the above came to me.  How best to prepare for the gig on Saturday?  Practice skillfully.  Act from principles.  Make decisions on what best serves the music, not my ego. Allow the Alexander Technique to direct my thinking in regard to movement, through movement, and perhaps into new relationships with myself, the guitar and maybe even music.  May I play this day with the same care and attention that I play a melody.
