Here is a quotation that you may think is not appropriate for our day – nothing could be further from the truth.
If you’re honest with yourself, think about all the responsibilities that you have that limit your abilities to live a better life. When you work, do you keep your income? Ok, how much of your income do you get to keep?
Let’s take this to another level: As most people do, they (I don’t) watch TV and usually will buy the “things” advertised, the services offered, go to the most popular places… businesses know how to get you to spend your money on what they’re selling, so in a simple sense, you’re a slave to your desires, and the corporations know how to manipulate those desires.
When you recognize and break free of this “slavery”, you will be on your way to a personal freedom that you only remember as a child.
