Celebrate your independence! When we think about independence, many times we remind ourselves of where we came from and what freedoms were attained. And while we celebrate our state’s independence as a national holiday, remind yourself of the current state that you live in.
What is your state of mind? What freedoms from dependence have you been able to overcome? It is in these moments that you have found release from some attachment, some amount of suffering, and a reliance on an idea that facilitates happiness.
So cherish the moments of change within yourself, but remember to hold compassion for those who haven’t yet found their own independence, in whatever state of mind, state of being, and state of heart we’ve all yet to discover.
