"Freedom begins between the ears."
~ Edward Abby ~
Our minds are our greatest oppressors and if we want to experience the joys of real freedom, we must learn to untangle ourselves from obsessive thinking, worry, fret, and despair; to take back our inner quiet and peace of mind. And this is no small task. It requires daily, and maybe even momentary, vigilance- to not get pulled from the joy of the moment and the experience of now into thinking. Un-invited thinking is a trap.
Learning to be the masters of our mind is the key to our personal freedom. Without it, we are as caged as any zoo animal or prisoner of war.
To experience the greatest peace possible, I learn how to quiet my mind.
