Freedom Within Reason ~ by Gharwang Rinpoche

We are all fighting for freedom which is an elusive dream for many individuals.

Is freedom an achievable goal, and if so then how? It is my personal opinion that we are fighting day and night for our freedom in one way or another. It is becoming a distant dream than something which is achievable within a short time. True and total freedom does not exist everywhere in the world. To a certain degree, freedom does exist in some of the developed and developing countries. Personally, I think true freedom has to come from within. We are constantly imprisoned by our own poisons, such as fear, temptation, desire, jealousy, and attachment. As long as we are imprisoned by these poisons, no matter how we try to exercise our rightful freedom, we will never really be free. Therefore, first of all, we need to free ourselves from those poisons which is very possible. Secondly, we need to keeping fighting for this noble cause, not only for ourselves but also for the next generation.
