I just love this quote:
Kierkegaard wrote: “People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use”.
I believe this video (below) highlights how freedom comes to us, not ‘just’ freedom in the form of “i’ll do what i want, when i want and how i want” BUT genuine freedom in the form of seeking discipline.
We may have physical freedom, but do we have emotional or mental freedom? Do you have thoughts that you wish you could forget about? Thoughts that distract you?
The video below may help.
I believe, understanding the distinction between the definition of freedom as pop culture calls it (i.e. do what you want, when you want and how you want) and genuine freedom (via the path of discipline) gives birth to freedom of thought and thereby setting the journey for a permanent exit from the rat race mentality.
Take a look for yourself. Please leave your comments below the video.
