To be free…to be liberated
Freedom would be – to live in a truly liberated society, country and world
Liberated from – prejudices of all kinds
Prejudices based on –
Color – Oh, you are white. How, oh how, does a whiter complexion guarantee that you are a superior specimen of humanity?
Caste – So, you are a Brahmin by caste. Should I assume now that you are ” pure ” in every aspect? You must be free from greed, envy, hatred, lust etc. What? No? But isn’t that the essence of being a Brahmin; an exalted and a superior state of mind, heart and soul?
Sex – Horrors! That person is a gay, lesbian, transsexual ! Kill him! Punish her! They are abnormal! Hey, do you ever stop and think that they were ” born ” that way? According to me, those who spew venom against them are the ones who are actually ” abnormal ” , with warped and unevolved minds. In a tolerant and liberated world, they would be as normal as you and me. Different strokes for different people.
Religion – The only true religion is humanity; being humane, kind, tolerant, non- judgemental and peaceful. All these names – Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, and so on; only bind us, make us slaves, put us inside cages and that is exactly where the power hungry and evil minds want us to stay.
To me , freedom means to LIVE AND LET LIVE.
