Yesterday I read a book and there was written, we all are not free in this world. So what do you think?

I'll tell you what I think. True, because most of the people are bound to various things. For example bound to their families, bound to money and prosperity, fame and honor, their thoughts and their believes and last but not least, (but I for one think it is the most important one) bound to the earth, because a lot of people can not free their minds and think outside the box. But it is also false, we are free as long as we can do what we love to do and what makes us happy. As long as we don't have to obey to others. As long as we know the things we are bound to and are able to abandon the commitments. And we are free as long as we don't fear a thing, as long as we don't think we know everything better, as long as we aren't greedy, etc.

By the way I am new here.

Back to the topic, this reminds me of a song I love. Here are the lyrics:

There's no money
There's no possessions
Only obsession
I don't need that shit
Take my money
Take my obsession

I just wanna be heard
Loud and clear are my words
Coming from within
Man, tell 'em what you heard
It's about a revolution
In your heart
And in your mind
You can't find the conclusion
Lifestyle and obsession
Diamond rings get you nothing
But a life-long lesson
And you're pocket book stressin'
You're a slave to the system
Working jobs that you hate
For that shit you don't need
It's too bad the world is based on greed
Step back and see, stop thinking 'bout yourself

'Cause everything is nothing
And emptiness is in everything
This reality is just really just a fucked up dream
With the flesh and the blood
That you call your soul
Flip it inside out, it's a big black hole
Take your money, burn it up like an asteroid
Possessions, they are never gonna fill the void
Take it away and learn the best lesson
The heart, the soul, the life, the passion

Present yourself, press your clothes
Comb your hair and clock in
You just can't win, just can't win
The things you own, own you


Take my money, Take my possession
Take my obsession, I don't need that shit
