Goodbye to seeking freedom

The internet has changed this. I thought after leaving custody in Turkey that freedom would be the ability to walk out of your front door and in any direction you want and whilst that’s partly true, it’s not that simple.

I also read Nelson Mandela’s thoughts on freedom. This short extract only from the section about freedom in Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet resonates

“…for you can only be free when even the desire of seeking freedom becomes a harness to you, and when you cease to speak of freedom as a goal and a fulfilment” 1
