Question: Sir, why do we say that slavery is a waste of time? Why can’t we accept that it is an alternate way of life?
Acharya Prashant: Because you are free. Because you are free. Howsoever much you may want, you cannot become a slave. Ironically!
All slavery that we have been talking of is actually in your thoughts. Freedom is your nature. You are free. So that is why it’s a wastage. For a free man to think and behave as if he is a slave, is a wastage.
You are free. At this moment, if you can listen and understand, you’refree. There is no holding you, stopping you. Your freedom is your intelligence. If you can understand, that is freedom. Are you getting it?
