Have you ever even asked yourself this question?
I really wanted to pose this question for whoever might be out there reading this right now. Specially if you already have a set idea as to what freedom truly is.
Many people have the belief that,
FREEDOM is doing what you want, when you want, as long as you don’t hurt anybody.
But then this opens up the door for another question.
What does it mean not to “HURT anybody”?
what if not hurting you hinders my freedom (i.e. doing what I like)
Did I give up my freedom and become enslaved to a thought,
“Don’t hurt anybody”
Truth of the matter is,
NOBODY IS FREE.
EVERYBODY IS ENSLAVED.
Even If you do what you want when you want, how you want, whether it’s right or wrong and you FEEL free.
The truth is you’re still enslaved,
and not even to yourself, but to your desires.
Others might be enslaved to Material things or power, making money, having a “NAME”, being famous, entertainment etc, The list can go on.
And when we free ourselves from one Bondage, we find another.
From one Master to another.
The lucky ones get to choose.
Nobody is independent,
we are all in constant need or want of something. Wants can be good or bad, needs are always Good.
Find the source of all of your needs.
