The more options you have, the higher the perceived freedom. With this multiple choice situation becoming a psychological jail if you’re not sure which path is best. A deer caught in the headlight of alternatives.
True freedom has a more expansive simple depth. Entailing only the choice of acceptance you’re not so concerned with molding your outer life to fit with any expectations. A state that entails a rising above the experiential highs and lows. With neither being the cause of joy or pain. Instead you settle into the seat of your soul, enjoying the entire ride for what it is – life. Realizing that is enough.
