You are free when you accept all that happens to you because you know you are an indestructible spiritual being and the details of your human life are being shaped by something greater.
You are free when you accept all that happens to anyone else because they too are indestructible spiritual beings and the details of their human lives are being shaped by something greater.
However, when I use the term “accept all” – I mean involve yourself not too emotionally. That means detach your self from harrowing emotions – of love, hate, fear, sympathy, ideology, excessive joy. These are all extreme agitation and uncomfortable. Surrender.
Only when you are completely severed from any agitation on any topic can you go into life with those very same emotions now under your control and not chained to you and help yourself and others who have not yet freed themselves – those who suffer – yourself included because you are being shaped by something greater than everything else.
