For every creature on this planet, from an ant to a whale, from a monkey to a human, freedom is a basic need of life. We all want to experience absolute freedom, we want to be limitless, boundaryless, and everlasting. But as of now, though freedom is the most valuable aspect of our lives, we are kinda entrapped in an invisible prison, created by none other than our clever selves.
The prison of ideologies, beliefs, society, past, and future, and whatnot. And this kind of prison is particularly terrifying and daunting because this is a mental prison. We can spend our whole lives entrapped in this prison without even knowing that we are prisoners in the first place. Now, ain’t that horrifying and absolutely gut-wrenching?
If one puts an animal in a real cage, or even a human for that matter, then at least he knows that he gotta do something or the other to free himself. But in today’s scenario, we think we are already free when actually we might be totally oblivious to the fact that maybe we are not.
