The Components of Freedom

Created 2022-01-01, Edited 2022-02-16

There are two different components to freedom

  1. Physical freedom: I can do what I want with my body
  2. Mental freedom: I can do what I want with my mind

The second form of freedom is more valuable then the first. What value is material freedom if you're an addict and miserable. However if you have mental freedom, you don't really need physical freedom.

The biggest obstacle to mental freedom is yourself, quit your addictions, conquer pain. Aspire to be on par with a navy seal or a self immolating monk.
