Want to be free?

Many beings want to be free.

Be free from suffering, painful sorrow, unhappiness, discrimination, separateness, racism, sexism, war, killing, violence, hatred, prejudice, unjust, corruption, criticism, condemn, corrupted government and leader, bias rules and regulations, obstacle, weakness, sickness, injuries, unpleasant sensations, pain, old age, death, separation from people and things that we love, undesirable experiences, fear and worry, and so on.

We think and believe that it is all the above 'bad' and 'negative' names and forms that make us not being free.

We think and hope that all kinds of suffering, painful sorrow, unhappiness, unpleasantness, evilness, bad and negative things or happenings will cease existing in this world or in our life existence, will make us free.
All those names and forms that we think are bad, wrong and evil in this world are all deriving from human beings under the influence of ignorance and egoism. All human beings need to work independently to free their minds from ignorance and egoism through their own effort. None can remove the ignorance of others. And by perceiving suffering in ourselves due to being disturbed, determined and affected by the ignorance and the consequences of ignorance of other human beings, is also the consequence of ignorance in ourselves.

We are not free is not because we are limited or restricted by all those qualities of name and form that make us think and feel that we are not free, but it's ignorance.

Real freedom is when our mind is free from ignorance, egoism of attachment, identification, desires of craving and aversion, expectation and all kinds of impurities and restlessness deriving from ignorance and egoism.

As long as our mind is not free from ignorance, egoism of attachment, identification, desires of craving and aversion, expectation and all kinds of impurities and restlessness, we won't be free.

Due to ignorance, human beings create lots of unnecessary 'conditions' conditioning the entire life existence of the body and mind under the influence of egoistic attachment and identification with certain qualities of name and form to be identifying as 'I', as well as there's expectation towards this life existence and the world that it has to be in certain ways that how we would like it to be, or how we think it should be.

Under the influence of ignorance, we don't just conditioning the life existence of our body and mind with the limited and subjective thinking and belief, and the ceaseless desires of want (craving) and don't want (aversion) and expectation, but whether intentionally or unintentionally, we also try to limit and restrict other beings' life existence by interfering with how they should and shouldn't think and behave based on our particular subjective thinking and belief, expecting all and everyone should be the way that we would like them to be.

Allowing others to be free for being who and what they are, even if our mind cannot agree with or dislikes what they think, act and speak, as their thinking and behavior are contradicted or different from our own thinking and behavior, but without being disturbed, or influenced, or determined by others' thinking and behavior.

Be free from all kinds of desire of craving and aversion and expectation is real freedom, even though the world is still being what it is, not necessarily the way that we think how it should be. Allowing the world to be what it is, but without being disturbed or determined by the world. Just do our best for ourselves and others through this life existence, and let go of attachment, identification, intention and expectation towards this life existence or the world that it has to be in certain ways that we think it should be.

Don't blind-believing or blind-following any teachings from anyone, not even the teachings mentioned here. Inquire the truth of everything, attain self-realization, and be free.

Om shanti.

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.
