You are born with absolute freedom into absolute freedom. Do you believe this? If you do not,
then you have only yourself to blame for your plight. You will live your whole life on the terms
somebody else sets for you. Can that be called living?
When you do not believe that you are free, you beg to be controlled. There always need to be an other, either for you or against you. Haven’t you heard people challenging each other saying if you are not supporting me, you are against me. Why do you need support or neglect? Aren’t you enough for yourself?
When you do not believe that you are born into freedom, you struggle to earn your freedom. How will an individual shaking off imaginary shackles look like if you were to meet that person on the street? Hold your prejudices. Would you like to be that individual? Forget about others
judging you, but how will you feel?
Freedom is not a state of mind. It is an existential reality. If you stop obsessing with the idea of
freedom, you can touch and feel it everywhere. Life will be a constant flow and mind will be in harmony with the heart. If you want to have a bit of fun, you can imagine the monsters at times at your own risk.
