Where Can I Find Freedom?
Most of the time we go through life dominated by one of two opposing mind states: liking and disliking. We direct our thoughts toward things we like and take pleasure in or we dwell upon and worry about things we dislike.
Each of these mind states can knock us off balance. We can regain our balance by finding the space between liking and disliking and resting there. Within that space, we are free from the influences of a frenzied mind. With practice, we can make the space wider and wider, which makes us more and more stable. Find your freedom within the space between liking and disliking.
