the point,
said the Buddha,
is that you
are already free.
you just haven’t
learned to act
like you are.
(i am paraphrasing
a wee bit.)
being free
is mostly about
unlearning
the habits of
unfreedom,
and unlearning
really only requires
paying attention
so you can
stop
what makes you
unfree
and instead
act like a person
living
free.
there are no saviors,
no gods
to show the way.
there is
your own mind,
your own life,
and nothing more.
in other words,
freedom.
