Freedom is an innate right that humans have had since birth. Freedom is something that cannot be touched, smelled, felt on or seen. All of this gives the vague idea of what freedom is, but what does freedom mean to ME?
Different people have different opinions definitions, and thoughts about the idea of freedom. Some speak of freedom in the political sense, others speak of social freedom, others of personal independence and others define it as religious freedom. But the fact that everyone wants to be free is true in every case.
Freedom is about ensuring respect and not living free. All societies define freedom in their own light, and as a result people living in different countries enjoy freedom in a way that they deem appropriate.
To enjoy our freedom does not mean that we ignore the freedom of others and live the way we feel. We must consider the rights and feelings of people around us when we live our freedom.
Freedom does not come with independence. Freedom is about enjoying the enchanting beauty of nature and the environment around us. A person who is worried and anxious cannot be free to mind and therefore cannot appreciate the scenic beauty of moonlit skies or the pleasing music of songbirds at sunset.
Therefore freedom to me personally is a whole state of mind. This implies that your mind is not under the fear or constant thought of insecurity in life. The feeling of having social recognition, being praised and being safe does not mean freedom. Our aspirations and ambitions to be someone are absurd and do not suggest freedom.
