Freedom

“Commitment gives you freedom because you’re no longer distracted by the unimportant and frivolous.  Commitment gives you freedom because it hones your attention and focus, directing them toward what is most efficient at making you healthy and happy.  Commitment makes decision-making easier and removes any fear of missing out; knowing that what you already have is good enough, why would you ever stress about chasing more, more, more again? Commitment allows you to focus intently on a few highly important goals and achieve a greater degree of success than you other wise would.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

“Explore the possibilities.  Be yourself.  Find a person who matches with you.  Take the risk, but be honest.  If it works, keep going.  If it doesn’t work, then do yourself and your partner a favor: Walk away; let her go.  Don’t be selfish.  Give your partner the opportunity to find what she really wants, and at the same time give yourself the opportunity.  If it’s not going to work, it is better to look in a different direction.  If you cannot love your partner the way she is, someone else can love her just as she is.  Don’t wast your time, and don’t waste your partner’s time.  That is respect.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love

“Identify the things that are holding you back.  Are you scared of speaking or do you have trouble in your relationships?  Do you lack a positive attitude or do you need more energy?  Make a written inventory of your weaknesses.  Satisfied people are far more thoughtful than others.  Take the time to reflect on what it is that might be keeping you from the life you really want to know deep down you can have.  Once you have identified what your weaknesses are, the next step is to face them head on and attack your fears.  If you fear public speaking, sign up to give twenty speeches.  If you fear starting a new business or getting out of a dissatisfying relationship, muster every ounce of your inner resolve and do it.  This might be the first taste of real freedom that you have experienced in years.  Fear is nothing more than a mental monster you have created, a negative stream of consciousness.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“In the end, the feminine search for love and the masculine search for freedom reach the same destination: the unbounded and infinite ground of being who you are, which is both absolute love and freedom.  But until you finally relax into the place you always are, your woman will continue to surrender – to you, chocolate, and shopping – in the hope of being filled with love, and you will continue to release yourself – through television, orgasm, and financial success – in the hope of being emptied of stress into unconstrained freedom.” ~ David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Love, Freedom, Aloneness:  The Koan of Relationships

Love, Freedom, Aloneness - The Koan of Relationships

By: Osho

Book Overview: In today’s world, freedom is our basic condition, and until we learn to live with that freedom, and learn to live by ourselves and with ourselves, we are denying ourselves the possibility of finding love and happiness with someone else.  Love can only happen through freedom and in conjunction with a deep respect for ourselves and the other. Is it possible to be alone and not lonely? Where are the boundaries that define “lust” versus “love”…and can lust ever grow into love? In Love, Freedom, Aloneness you will find unique, radical, and intelligent perspectives on these and other essential questions. In our post-ideological world, where old moralities are out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives. We have the chance to start afresh with ourselves, our relationships to others, and to find fulfillment and success for the individual and for society as a whole.

“I say to you, you are absolutely free, unconditionally free.  Don’t avoid the responsibility; avoiding is not going to help.  The sooner you accept it the better, because immediately you can start creating yourself.  And the moment you create yourself great joy arises, and when you have completed yourself, the way you wanted to, there is immense contentment, just as when a painter finishes his painting, the last touch, and a great contentment arises in his heart.  A job well done brings great peace.  One feels that one has participated with the whole.” ~ Osho, Love, Freedom, Alonenss: The Koan of Relationships

“Love is the only freedom from attachment.  When you love everything you are attached to nothing…  Man made prisoner by the love of a woman and woman made prisoner by the love of a man are equally unfit for freedom’s precious crown.  But man and woman made as one by love, inseparable, indistinguishable, are verily entitled to the prize.” ~ Mikhail Naimy, The Book of Mirdad
