thought for the day----> without total freedom, every perception, every objective regard, is twisted…..it is only the man who is totally free who can look and understand immediately….freedom implies really, doesn't it, the total emptying of the mind….completely to empty the whole content of the mind--that is real freedom…..freedom is not mere revolt from circumstances, which again breeds other circumstances, other environmental influences, which enslave the mind…..we are talking about a freedom that comes naturally, easily, unasked for, when the mind is capable of functioning at its highest level……
