Awareness – The Key to Mental, Emotional and Physical Freedom

Often times people assume that when they experience sadness, anger, fear, apathy, hate…or any other emotional state they would like to be free from, freedom is far off and they are completely trapped in a whirlwind of suffering without any means of escape.

What he told me was that the surrender to death was an incredibly liberating experience to him and he seemed happy, even joyous as I spoke to him.
