freedom - repost

When we re-orient our perceptions or choose an alternate concept, are we not merely rearranging ourselves cosmetically. Genuine freedom is an inner state of being independent of circumstances.It is not a repositioning or a changing of circumstances which at most gives temporal relief; it is rather a "happening" within. In true freedom, there is no choice....we just are in flow....the way we are...
In search of freedom and happiness
Man invents excitements and escapes.
Are freedom and happiness
Cultivated attitudes of mind ?
Or are they the outcome of internal being
Unrelated to mind?
- Dada Gawand
