Free?

Free?

I am not sure how free I am, for as I age I still deal with the same issues, mostly because I have not fully faced some of them, a forestalling of pain, but in the end mote, for the pain only gets greater. Living in a finite world, there will be limitations that constrain us from freeing ourselves from suffering, or of even beginning to understand what it is all about. There are no black and white answers and those who seek them I feel limit their ability to open themselves up to possibility. Our understanding can deepen, but it is something each must learn. We can read others for help and insight, but if what they write does not in some way intersect with personal experience, then the reading will avail little.

I am sure that no-one can be free. Not in this life. To really be free, I think I envy the birds, they can fly and that for me, has to be the most freeing of experiences, but then I'm NUTS! I had an out-of-body experience once, many years ago and that one moment of time, I felt truly really "free" because I could travel with no constraints.

Yeah I often wonder what it would be like to just fly! I have lucid dreams from time to time and there are times when all I do is fly, it is estatic, no doubt about it. Your lucky to have an OBE my friend.

Only the once and it ended quite scarily. Lucid dreams are strange aren't they? I had a dream one night last week in which there was a man whose face I could see so very clearly.. when I woke I could still see him but for the life of me, couldn't place him. I thought about it all day long... probably just someone I passed in the Street years ago..but it was unsettling.

what if the only thing for us in life is to live? Thats all.. live, and through living, experience different things, teach it to others in one form or another and in the sense life carries on.

and so you are as free as you are willing to experience life

Yes true, however, the struggle to be free I believe is a life long struggle and we are here for a reason, our choices create us, make us who we are. We also have an affect on others, good or bad my friend. Good comment.
