A wife asked her husband if someday the God come to you and ask you to give anything you wish, What will you ask? The husband replied so quick”Hey God I just wish, my wife obeyed all my orders”. “Really ! can you do the same, if I wish it?” wife again said. The husband doubled up and said, “No, I can’t, How can I”. “Then why do you want to occupy the freedom of my part? You have a chance to wish anything that can lift your life and fulfil your all dreams. then why you don’t wish to be a king at the place of making someone your slave?” The wife completed and left.
This is bitter but the truth. No-one wants to level up, improved or groomed himself. But yes they try hard to degrade others. Everyone loves to act, speak and think in his own way. But, at the same time, he wishes to control others. If you are capable then do something great. Don’t waste your strength in increasing the trouble of others.
“Better to die on One’s feet than to live on one’s knees.”
What, If you have millions in your account but you can’t spend them? You like to watch a serial which comes at 9 pm but you are only allowed to watch at 8 pm? You have silver dishes and multiple food items but none of your choice. Can anyone live such a life where someone is forcing you to compromise in every step? Can you act the way he likes, hide tears while broken inside and so on?
” You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”
I can’t live in someone’s captivity or surveillance and I can’t even force someone to do so. Imprisonment is imprisonment, either the cage is made of gold or steel. It becomes suffocating to breath in an environment where you are not allowed to put your opinions, and forced to change yourself entirely. Remember there is a huge difference between the adjustments and killing the self totally.
“When you come to a point where you have no need to impress anybody, your freedom will begin.”
Adjustments improve the relationships and induce respect but killing the self inside you due to make others happy fills you with disappointment, anger and disrespect for others. Force is not acceptable at any level. Where force comes the relations either personal or professional destroys only.
As we all know that force is always applied to separate the things and glue is applied to bind them together. The glue of love, affection, understanding, care, and respect binds the relations, creates the inventions and completes the life.
“A friend is someone, who allows us space and the freedom to be.”
There must be space in every relationship. A space to get the oxygen of life, to open up their wings, to fly high in the sky of dreams, to realize the value of self and others, to analyse the goal of your life, to be with self. A little distance is mandatory to maintain that level of respect.
“You must love in a way that the person you love feels free.”
The second name of love is freedom. freedom to express, freedom to choose, freedom to speak, and freedom to go. When we applied a strong force than the same we get in reaction. So apply a positive force, the reaction will be wonderful.
Just place yourself at the state of others and feel their conditions and situations for yourself to be in. You will never think bad for others and also you will never hurt anyone. For me, freedom is to allow other’s creativity to come out. If someone’s act is not hurting me, any living being and my environment then he can do whatever he wishes, but if his acts are destructive in any way, his actions should be controlled.
If I have to choose between happiness and freedom, I will always go with my freedom because, with it, I will create my happiness. A free mind is always happy and a happy mind is more creative and able to execute any task with 100% accuracy and dedication.
“Freedom is the oxygen of the soul”
Freedom is for self-development, not for destroying others. Use your freedom positively and be the one you are born to be. Enjoy the each and every moment of the freedom of your part.
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chain but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
