    In our quest to win freedom from the ties that bind, we spend most of our lives struggling to overcome vague foes that fade in and out, like the shadows that move across the forest floor each time the sun moves behind a cloud. Yet, for all of these battles engaged and won, for all the changes we've made in our lifestyles and relationships, one thing remains basically the same. We still feel...

    Trying to dominate our destructive thoughts and feelings, or seeking to liberate our "better" parts through some form of self-discipline, is secretly at the expense of our freedom, and not in its cause. Freedom from the ties that bind, victory over our own nature, is not a conquest in the usual sense. Try to see the following as deeply as possible: *anything that has to be kept in check must a...

Drop all such sorrow permanently by daring to see through this deception of the unconscious mind. The very fact that you know there's farther to go before your journey to freedom is complete also tells you that wherever you...

    As human beings we form relationships and then, when the form or dynamic of these relationships change, as they must, we blame these unwanted changes for our loss of peace. Such behavior is like getting mad at the wind that catches our hat and whisks it away. Our sense of lost peace, along with feeling the loss of one's freedom that was tied to it, has never had anything to do with peace with...

    Though few understand the truth of the following, freedom is (always) a question of possibilities. Prisons, of any kind, strip away our possibilities. For example, (an inmate) has lost the simple freedom to just wander where he wishes, outside in the fresh air, under no authority other than what he wills in that moment. But there are other kinds of freedom, higher orders of liberty – for in...

To begin with, and to set the stage for our study, it is the true leaders -- those individuals of this world who expand its boundaries -- who reveal the secret routes to new and nobler realities. Such revo...
