Bondage

When we feel trapped in circumstances or relationships then that becomes a bondage for us. It is not that we don’t like the people but what emerges is the feeling of not having a choice.

Feelings of bondage arise due to the presence of some expectation, even subtly, from the situation or relationship. We want something, or have a fear of losing something. This is actually what keeps us ‘trapped’.

If internally I insist on holding on to a branch and then say that I am not free from the tree, then who is the one keeping me in bondage? To be free I must let go of the branch. The branch cannot let go of me!

When bondage goes then there is freedom. Bondage and freedom are two sides of the same coin. It is a matter of perspective. It is a matter of my attitude to it and my awareness.

Let go and you are free . Learn the lesson of letting go.

Om Shanti
