Are we living free?

Updated: May 3, 2022

What does it mean to be locked up, and what does it mean to be free. Do we understand what the difference is? This man in the picture, is in jail but is he locked up? He has many rights taken away from him. He has to do a lot of things when he is told to do them. Eats, when told, sleep when told, has time in the yard to exercise (if he is lucky) when he is told, so yes he is in jail. Not a good place to be. What could he be learning in jail; good things or more likely to be bad things? Ok, we will not get into that right now, but he does not have his freedoms, I think we can all agree on this.


This man is locked up in jail, but is he locked up?

Is the person below in jail? Ok, he is obviously not in jail BUT could he be in jail mentally? Ok not a jail for crazy people, but does he live with restrictions? Let me elaborate on that. Do we live to our maximum capabilities OR do we just exist with our comfortable lives? How many of us go against the grain and really go for what we love, what we are passionate about, who live like there is no tomorrow? Ok, I agree that there needs to be some sort of responsibility and we all have lives we need to support BUT generally % wise how many of us are living FREE? I would argue that it is not most of us. People fear the risk, this is a natural fact. People can relate to comfortable situations, change can be challenging. Why do we not go after the things that we want?


Could this person also be in a prison?

Yes definitely could be in mental restrictions - which might just exactly feel as if one is in prison. Having to deal with people that ruin ones life on a day-to-day basis, may as well feel like one cannot live freely.

Good point. I never though about it like this.
