Questions of my heart on Independence and Freedom

By KAOSHAL, August 15, 2016

The sense and feeling of Independence is so mixed at times to me. We can see people just following the dress and celebrations code on so called Independence Day. We seem to be laughing sometimes when our inner self ask us sometimes – Are you really independent in real sense? Souls are just waiting for the bodies to come out after its death. People are just alive with their bodies holding so much of material and consumer desires. World is just becoming nothing more than a bottom of pyramid of rich and poor. Then, where is Independence and Freedom?
I feel that one can only be independent after achieving freedom, by looking within and by loving oneself, by doing things one loves to do and by loving what one’s heart never doubts on. Freedom is simple, but it is not easy. It is never related to any religion or country by saying that XYZ country got freedom on XYZ date. It is not a place or date or year, but a sense of feeling autonomy of following your heart and dreams without any slavery by external forces, but a conviction of inner calls. It is about being you. It is about being allowed to be real from inside. Being real is more important than being nice. It is about being craving for your dreams from inside without fear of any misfortune.

We should not focus over the narrow thinking independence and freedom and just stop living into illusions of these. People search for lifetime love, even families lie to us to do what we want to do; but once we become ready to seek that love and our XYZ (a person / dream) finds us; this conditioned family / society will tell us to make transaction based (but feeling less) relationship where we are bound to see only material b1enefits. We forget what our souls are craving for. We compromise and just do what we are supposed to do, just instruct by others. We only live our neighbours’ life than living our own. We only follow the path described by others than exploring new dimensions.

My heart always come up with following voices –
You are independent only when you never need to doubt on your heart.
You are independent only when you never need to think twice once you fall in true love.
You are independent only when you never need to compromise with your dreams.
You are independent only when you never need to need anything for the smallest purpose of living.
You are independent only when you never need to celebrate any specific day for it.

Now tell me!!! Are you Independent? Do you actually deserve to celebrate freedom? If yes, why not everyday?
