Freedom is accepting what is in the moment, whatever is happening, even if it's terrible depression or rage or whatever. It's feeling into it and allowing it to be there. It's also accepting your thoughts, whatever they are.

(Obviously, emotions and thoughts are simply that, and different from actions).

If you feel you can't accept what's happening, accept the non acceptance.

The ego has a stronghold but it's in lessening resistance to our experience that the ego loses its power a little and we develop more stillness around our experience.

Try not to focus on finding freedom or anything else as that's a mind trap for the future. instead, be with where you are right now even if it's awful by your mind's standards.
