You Are The Slave and The Master
Some say we live in the land of the free. We weren't always free and many of us still are not free at all. We are slaves to society, to work, to reaching the American Dream, to our families, to our significant others, to our projects and commitments. We are slaves and our minds are our masters. The irony is if we are our own master are we truly slaves?
Take the time to think about something that makes you feel enslaved. Something you feel trapped into doing and there is no way out of it. Is there really no way out of it or are there other conditions and arrangements that depend on you to keep you enslaved? A lot of times you pay the price for one convenience over another. Maybe you feel as though you are a slave and trapped by your own emotions. Do your emotions good or bad control you?
If we do not want to be enslaved by something, anything, than we need to dig beneath the surface and see the true source of that enslavement. Once you realize that you yourself hold the key to your freedom you will feel the true meaning of free. Remember you are your own master you control your own fate.
