You say you have freedom.  Free will, freedom of choice, free to go where you will yet you tie yourselves down with ignorance.  You succumb to greed and material wealth.  This is not freedom.  Freedom comes from the spirit, it comes from within, it comes from the heart.  When your heart is light you have freedom but when the heart is heavy with worry, then you do not.  Learn to let go of problems, of the past, of meaningless worries about tomorrow.  Tomorrow will come just as sure as the sun rises.  One of your sayings is ‘Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday’.  You have no more freedom than an animal that is tied unless you can release your heart and listen to the wind.
