Well put. Do you think we can ever be totally free from our mind though? Turning back decades of mind non awarness is not easy is it. Ive done
it well for say a day, then the next day something makes me become trapped again in the mind, and then I realize and kick myself
You say turning back decades of none awareness, isn’t that in the past? It’s happened and there is nothing we can do about it. Just like wars have
happened, we cannot go back and change that, however we can learn to progress from that as we know it’s not the way. Why kick yourself, you
realized when you slipped back into the unconscious state. "That’s Awareness” it will only grow stronger. The real reason you kick yourself is
so the ego has something to complain about or to dwell over, to make you see yourself as a failure. Once you move out of that you succeed, or another
way of putting that “You have to fail to succeed”
Also who knows how much of our mind conditioning has been handed down through our reincarnations?
Isn’t that living in the past, the only way is forward is to live in the present moment. Reincarnation is another chance in my opinion, another
chance to break free from the collective unconsciousness
Total freedom is living completely in the now and being as you say completely aware, not an easy task.
It’s very easy, living in the past or the future is a lot harder in fact it’s impossible as it’s just an illusion. Awareness is observation in
the “Now” that’s how easy it is, a lot easier that trying to remember the past with new beliefs or predict the future with old beliefs.
My thoughts on Freedom
; First we need to look at the word freedom, what is freedom.
Freedom, is the idea of being free there will always be something we want to be free from. The Government, Other Religions, Other beliefs, War, Hate,
Murder, Fear, Death or just people we don’t like or agree with… The list goes on and once we are free from one thing we will look for another
unless we become aware of the ego but then we may be tricked into being free from that thus making the ego a problem. Don’t make ego a personal
problem we progress from the ego we evolve from the ego; all we need to do is be aware of it. The ego’s force is a wonderful thing. It brought us
this far, and thanks to it, we will also reach our perfection.
In a sense Drakiir is right, Freedom is a fantasy it’s a fantasy of the ego. Bringing up the past and living in the future always looking for that
end goal “Freedom” real freedom is Awareness. Although hard to obtain its not impossible, where as living in the past and future is.
Once again take this advice any way you please, if you disagree I’m fine with that. I would rather you question what I have to say than just accept
