What does freedom mean to you?
To me freedom is a state of mind, knowing no matter what I do, it is going to be ok. No fear! Not sure if I am there yet but want to be.
My idea of freedom is the acceptance of you, your actions but more about freedom of knowing that you can do whatever you want to do and don’t hold it back because of social, physical and emotional fears.
I was listening to a podcast and the guest, an author and a life coach, mentioned something about freedom. That triggered in my mind, what is freedom. Everyone may have their own definition. But I started to think what will make me free.
To me freedom is a state of mind. I don’t have to go anywhere to experience freedom. I can be in the remotest place on earth with no one around and no laws to follow but I still may feel bonded by my own fears, my own subconscious beliefs, teachings etc.
A state of freedom may mean when you are able to think, act and react unencumbered from any influence of fear, where the mind experiences no external influence now or ever.
While looks can be deceiving, but you see some people and know they are totally free. Their mind and thinking is not bound by any fears or preconceived ideas of anything. They think independently, they think outside of the box, they are self-less thinkers, they are peaceful, and happy….. they reach a state of mind that can only be experienced and not defined in a definition.
It’s like reaching Nirvana, it can be experienced but not defined.
