Food for Buddhist Thought
From Steve Hagen’s Buddhism Plain and Simple, page 38:
bq. We live in a culture where we’re taught to see freedom as the maximization of choice. But this is not true freedom at all. In fact, it’s a form of bondage. True freedom doesn’t lie in the maximization of choice, but, ironically, is most easily found in a life where there is little choice.
Doesn’t that just make you feel great about yourself?
Well, it should.
