What does it mean to be free? Does it mean the freedom to always do what you want? Here Gangaji unpacks our conditioned concepts of freedom and illustrates how the desire to follow every impulse can actually become our bondage, especially when those impulses are unconsciously rooted in self-denial and self-hatred.
“The realization of freedom asks that you live on a razor’s edge. When you are really living on that edge, there is only freedom. This edge requires an emptiness of mind in order to stay balanced; and the way that many spiritual seekers fall off that edge and cut themselves is the trap of freely following every impulse of mind, including, inadvertently, the super ego’s impulse toward self-hatred.”
