Freedom 16

What is freedom? Freedom to love and enjoy. The idea of freedom and joy is not just a moral and social imperative: freedom and joy are the fundamental basis of all that we know and love. The pursuit of freedom and joy is a fundamental element of the search for meaning and purpose. So, the most basic question should be: What is freedom? The freedom to love has been the defining characteristic of the western tradition. We take this freedom and enjoy it as something that is righteously good, and then we say to ourselves: "Yes, this is what I desire." There is another way of seeing freedom, of understanding and enjoying freedom, and it's called openness.
