Free! Free! Free!

Thanks to Kishore! This is a fantastic list! Everyone wants freedom....but it's just that some people live under the mistaken impression that not being told (by others) what to do - not being *controlled* by others - is what freedom is all about. This list can be an eye-opener as it takes you to the aspects that point to real freedom...inner freedom....! :) Here are some of my favourites....things I am hopefully beginning to get a hang of.... :)
  • You step over setbacks without stopping or looking back.
  • You meet and do what's true without fear of the consequences.
  • You really don't want anything from anyone.
  • You start spending more time alone and enjoying it more.
  • You lose all interest in trying to win mental arguments.
  • You dress for comfort, not for compliments.
  • You don't blame anyone else for the way you feel.
  • You see where you're wrong sooner than later, and stop defending yourself faster.
  • You're not afraid of having nothing to say or do, if that's your true condition.
  • You have no concern for what others may think of you.
  • You enjoy the sound of silence as much or more than the sound of your own voice.
  • You see society is destroying itself and that the only solution is in self-change.
  • You know that forgiveness of others is the kindest thing you can do for yourself.
