The Freedom of Milarepa
We shouldn’t bother wishing to be like the rich and famous. We probably have no idea of the trouble, anxiety and feelings of dissatisfaction that plague them. We should instead look up to and aspire to be like those who have control over their minds.
When I was in Namo Buddha just now, I was thinking a lot abut Milarepa and how happy and free he must’ve been. He was totally free from worldly concerns. He didn’t have to bend his will to anyone or thing. He had total freedom. That is what we should aspire to.
