Freedom 083118

I think all of us want Freedom.  Freedom to do what WE want to do – freedom to be able to go where we want to – the list of freedoms we want or would like to see is endless.

Freedom
The basic condition of happiness is freedom. If there is something on your mind that you keep thinking about, then you are caught and have no freedom. If you are caught in sorrow and regret about the past, or if you are anxious about what will happen to you in the future, then you are not really free to enjoy the many wonders of life that are available in the here and now. The blue sky, the beautiful trees, the lovely faces of children, the flowers, and the birds can nourish and heal us in the present moment.
