About Freedom

Everyone wants freedom. Free from hunger and thirst; free from birth and death; free from cause and effect; free from fears and worries; free from anger, hatred, jealousy, greed, lust and arrogance; free from irritation, frustration, dissatisfaction, disappointment, unhappiness and suffering; free from pain, injuries, harms, heat, cold, illness, weakness, decay and old age; free from limitations and conditions; free from likes and dislikes, cravings and aversions; free from ignorance and impurities; free from the bondage of life existence and attachments; free from bad and evil thoughts, actions and speech either from ourselves or from other beings; free from wars, crimes, killings, injustice, natural disasters, accidents, conflicts and arguments; free from restlessness and boredom; free from agitation and depression; free from the senses, the mind, the ego and the intellect; free from separation from our loved ones and being with the people that we don’t like; free from the transitory world of names and forms; free from impermanence; free to do everything that we want or like to do without rules and regulations; free to go anywhere that we want or like to go without any boundaries of nation and politic; free from discrimination of races, religions, sexes, creeds, sects, languages, colours and looks; free to express and to say what we want to say; free from praise and censure, success and failure, and all the dualities; free from debts and karma…etc

Above all, we want to be free without any qualities of good and evil; free from time, space and causation; unlimited and unconditioned by anything at all.

Nothing in this world can give us all these freedom. No money can buy us eternal life without birth, growth, old age, decay, illness, pain, suffering and death.

Only by non-attachment and letting go; realize selflessness; and attain self-realization can free us from all bondages, limitations and conditions. All the knowledge in the world cannot give us freedom and peacefulness. Only wisdom can free us from all these bondages and be really free.

Possess nothing actually is having everything and is free; while possess everything actually is having nothing and is not free.

Possess a few things means having a little fear and worries; possess many things means having huge fear and worries.

Having lots of needs and wants definitely is imprisoning ourselves in responsibility, relationship and discontentment; while having less needs and wants is the key to freedom.

Without attachment and knowing how to let go, we can enjoy everything but not having any fears and worries.

Simplicity and appreciation is freedom.

Identification with the body and the mind is building the invisible wall for the prison of impermanence, suffering, mortality and dissatisfaction; while non-identification with the body and the mind is removing this wall of the prison.

The physical body can never be free from all limitations and conditions but we can free our minds to be resting upon the eternal unlimited and unconditioned selfless universal Self.

May we all be free and be happy.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
