You cannot be free if you think: freedom is detaching oneself from ones intellect. The mind is then at peace with itself: this is total union with God. The God who taught me the life-lessons to get here is the one and only Supreme Being Sri Krishna. I am now in heavenly peace; Shantananda.
Om Shanti, 0m Shanti, Om Shanti.
But what precisely is bring free? JIddu Krishnamurti gave an excellent talk about this. He called it 'instant insight" when one hss such perfect understanding that one takes immediate actions regardless of time and without considerations.
