Are any of us in this 3D world really free? I suppose that could only be answered depending on one's definition of freedom. And I'm sure there are many different definitions out there. I sincerely hope you consider yourself to be free and that you are content on whatever path you are now following. I would like to share another quote from the Tao te Ching for I feel it says a lot about what being free truly means. The quote says:
The Master does his job then stops.
He understands that the universe is forever out of control,
and that trying to dominate events goes against the current of the Tao
Because he believes in himself, he doesn't try to convince others.
Because he is content with himself, he doesn't need others' approval
Because he accepts himself, the whole world accepts him.
I feel we are all Masters of our life if we but take the time and effort to honestly explore who we really are. The only one who can give you freedom is yourself! I hope you are already there this moment! I take leave of you good folks with a gentle reminder to be good to yourself and even better to others around you. A better world awaits your recognition..may the doors be flung widely open now and forever! Peace, love, and understanding to all of you, my dear friends. "HUGS"
