As the corona waves keep on rolling through the countries of the world, it becomes obvious how the human fear is exploited by the politicians of the different countries. The political bargain usually translates like this: We will take away your freedom, and we will guarantee your safety and security in exchange.
On this level, the freedom of the individual seems to count nothing in regard to the so-called “greater good”. However, once the personal freedom is taken away, what will be the quality of life that remains? Will we be able to fill it with creativity, love and joy? It will be difficult, because the freedom of the indiviudal is the foundation for all these qualities to exist.
It is good to remember what an enlightened master has to say about this: Osho says: “Never act out of fear. Fear Is the Antithesis of Freedom.”
“The real future of humanity is not in the hands of governments or the big organisations. It cannot be. It is up to each individual to realise their hidden potential, their hidden splendour. When human beings stop being followers, stop being sheep, then they are ready to claim their real inheritance as individuals. Every individual has the potential to be a Buddha.”
