Free : Wandering Thought #80

Wandering Thought #80: Free

We seek freedom because we are not totally free right now. However, we are already more free than we imagine. Yet this freedom is not always liberating, for it is also a burden. We have to choose, but we cannot choose not to choose, for even to not choose is a choice chosen. Our mission is to use our existential freedom to be free from the burden of choice – not by relinquishing free will, but by learning to use it well, with the greatest of ease, for the greatest of purposes, free from any sense of burden. This is the path to total freedom.
