Freedom comes from within. What is offered without seldom attends to what lies within, for one can live in the land of the free and still be in a prison of one’s own making. Freedom can really only be achieved within the self, granted through the work of recapitulation and detachment, through the compassionate work of tending to the self in the deepest way. Freedom is being whole and complete within, no matter the outer circumstances. Now, that is a battle worth fighting for—you!
