Freedom

The possibility of being generous

Freedom is the possibility of being generous. You can afford to open yourself and walk on the path easily – without defending yourself or watching yourself be self-conscious all the time. It is the absence of ego, the absence of self-consciousness. That is the ultimate freedom. The absence of self-consciousness brings generosity. You don’t have to watch for dangers or be careful that you are going too far or too slow. It is the confidence which is freedom, rather than breaking free from chains of imprisonment, exactly. Developing confidence and breaking out of psychological, internal imprisonment brings freedom naturally. In other words, it is generosity.

No coming, no going

No coming, no going,
No after, no before
I hold you close
I release you to be free
I am in you
And you are in me ..

– Thich N. Hanh –


If we cling to anything we cannot be free

“At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it. Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh~

The mighty ocean has but one taste, the taste of salt.

Even so, the Noble Path has but one flavor, the flavor of freedom.

Letting go gives us freedom,
and freedom is the only condition for happiness.

anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.

Teaching freedom to others

greatmiddleway.wordpress.com

PN-Golden-Buddha-Painting-IJIn teaching freedom to others,

the best way is to first establish five things.

Which five? When teaching others, think:

I will teach gradually and confidentially.

I will speak with the goal in mind.

I will speak with gentleness.

I will not speak in order to gain anything.

I will not speak with a view to harming anyone.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Anguttara Agama
