Freedom is a fundamental concept in Buddhist thought. Understanding it can have a profound impact on how we make our spiritual path personal. By defining freedom we consciously limit our experience of it, but by breaking through the way we’ve defined it, we discover a deeper more embodied expression of being human. The unconscious concepts of freedom and un-freedom have incredible potential to affect our lives, leading us at times to perpetuate systems of power and control that harm ourselves and the people around us. The Buddhist path offers a framework for challenging ourselves to define freedom in a way that it includes more and more beings, ultimately landing on a experience that leaves no one out.
