Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.

- Jiddu Krishnamurti

Anarchism has but one infallible,
unchangeable motto, "Freedom."
Freedom to discover any truth,
freedom to develop,
to live naturally and fully.

Stress less society

Freedom to speak must include
Freedom not to speak.
Freedom to love must include
Freedom to ignore.
Freedom to marry must include
Freedom to divorce.
Freedom to go to either pole,
Or both the poles or in between.
Then only could the humanity
Live in a society without stress.

Real freedom is having nothing.
I was freer when I didn't have a cent.

If you think we are free today, you know nothing
about tyranny and even less about freedom.

Birds in a Cage

"Why do you weep?" inquired the young siskin of the old,
"You're more comfortable in this cage than out in the cold."
"You were born caged," said the elder, "this was your morrow;
"I was free, now I'm caged—hence the cause of my sorrow."

Thanks, Burgundia, it is inspiring and matches with previous post.
Now, this Polish author made me to think about the great Polish director Krzystof Kieszlowsky and his movie trilogy "Three colors" (Blue, Red and White), where he "play" with three universal values symbolically: Blue=Equality; Red= Justice and White= Freedom.
Here is a piece from Three colors: White.

Two friends. One is desperate. He pays to his friend to kill him. His friend takes the money and...see how he liberate him...

And music...great piece by the genius Zbigniw Preisner!

When I was younger I was materialistic and counted my wealth in square footage and location. Today I am a very wealthy woman not at all related to money or possessions. And it is not anathema to me, au contraire
