Awakening and Liberation

eputkonen's picture



Sometimes Awakening is called Liberation. We think we are making progress in the process of freeing ourselves from bondage…but Awakening (i.e. Liberation) is realizing you were never in bondage in the first place. Upon Awakening, you clearly realize that all of that time you spent in the process of freeing yourself from bondage was the delusion of bondage itself.
