"Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom." --Soren Kierkegaard
What is freedom, really?
I looked it up and it is defined as a lack of constraints, or as freedom from something, like fear, want, hunger, pain, depression and/or addiction. Who wouldn't want that? But how do we get there?
Hint: it involves the loss of ego; hence the dizziness.
It's a spiritual pursuit and it requires a lot of work to live in freedom from constraints. There is also freedom to be joyous, freedom to be yourself, your truest Self, to just Be. That's another challenge. Life seems to be full of them.
I think that the path to freedom is through spiritual practice. What works for me won't necessarily work for someone else but we all want the same thing.
