Happiness never comes from outside. Only when you are not depending on anything from outside for your happiness are you totally independent. You may live in a free country, but you are not free until and unless you free yourself from ignorance. National freedom is not the real freedom. You are not even free to change lanes as you want. If you don’t give the proper signal before you change lanes, you will hear the police siren coming behind you. Can you say that you are really free? Real freedom comes only when you know your true nature.
