To be totally free, one needs to be totally aware because our bondage is rooted in our unconsciousness; it does not come from outside. Nobody can make you unfree. You can be destroyed, but your freedom cannot be taken away unless you give it away.
In the ultimate analysis, it is always your desire to be unfree that makes you unfree.
It is your desire to be dependent, your desire to drop the responsibility of being yourself, that makes you unfree.
