Freedom means letting go. People just do not care to
let go of everything. They do not know that the finite is
the price of the infinite, as death is the price of immortality.
Spiritual maturity lies in the readiness to let go of everything.
The giving up is the final step. But the real giving up is in
realizing that there is nothing to give up, for nothing is your
own. It is like deep sleep – you do not give up your bed when
you fall asleep – you just forget it.
