On Freedom


Are you truly free?

Free enough to be

You, as you truly are?

Being free is a birthright.

Be free of bondages that restrict.

Unleash and unshackle your self

You owe it most to your own self

Let go the unwanted burdens.

Let go fear and favour.

Let go notions and assumptions

Create spaces in your thoughts

To meet the lightness of your being

Take yourself lightly as well.

As density can pull you down

Know you are meant to be all

That you truly are!

Nothing can bound your soul from expression.

For true freedom is respect for self and others

Be free to find yourself !

Be free to think for yourself!

Know the world needs your uniqueness as you are ….. now more than ever before!


A few more arising thoughts

What is your idea of freedom?

How important is freedom and being free to you as a person?

If you were to trade freedom for something else…would you ?

And secondly with what ?

Do share your reflections on freedom.

  1. Thanks, dear Savvy ๐Ÿ™‚

    My idea of freedom:
    Do live and do under the umbrella of God (in His Will) – to surrender my free will in His Will, to surrender completely to Him…

    I believe that freedom of myself (from my mind) will lead me to the freedom of God. Our free will is limited within certain boundaries as karmic processes are laid in our life which have to be lived through, even if we want it or not, to repay open bills

    Freedom can never be a business, same as with love – if there is a business or trade then it is our mind that is doing it to gain some advantage…

    Big hugs to you, dear friend

  2. Freedom is being away from material afflictions. Letting everyone live in their own space.

    • For to be free is not merely to cast off oneโ€™s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others’- Nelson Mandela
      Truly then
      Freedom is in learning to be and letting others be!

  3. Thank you for this thought provoking piece.

    No one is binding me – but my own mind. I seek approval from others and bind myself. I seek to preserve a protective ego personality – and bind myself.

    I wonder — how to be free? What to let go? Everything?

    What is everything – i guess all that changes and binds me to that which is not eternal. Just as Tagore said – I too pray – To that place of pure love and clear mind, Oh Master, let my soul go – and glow as a sparkling light of sweetness – for You and all Your Creation.

    Thank You, beautiful Savvy! Wish you a blessed evening. ๐Ÿ’›

    I feel freedom is very important for every one irrespective of the age. It helps to keep our mind wide open, and it is the birth place of creative ideas.
    I don’t like to trade freedom under any circumstances. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I think we’re not free. Our activities limited are limited by certain norms created by society
