To the one who wants to be free

Tomoko Gakiya writes (translated from Japanese):

«In freedom, there is always inconvenience (bondage).

How can you recognize freedom
if you never feel constrained?

The two are relative.

That’s why the more you pursue freedom,
the more you experience bondage.

All concepts begin with the sense of being — «I am.»
My very existence is a shackle in itself.

When I am absent,
when there is no «me» to pursue freedom,
the concept of freedom disappears,
and along with it,
the concept of inconvenience (bondage)
also disappears.

In the end, there is nothing but an empty sky.
Only absolute freedom.

It is absolute in the sense that
there is no recognition of absolute freedom.

Absoluteness (unconditionality).»
