In other words . . . Is there a direct correspondence between the amount of time you have and the amount of freedom that that time brings you? Or, is your freedom always there, irrespective of any cause?
Life is an invention that we continually conceive. Whether or not you need time to be free is just one example of how you have conceived life up until now.
The usual way of addressing freedom looks like this . . .
The hours between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM today are open, so you declare them as ‘freedom’. This is the ‘finite’ view where activities are inserted into time. Here is another possibility . . .
We consider the whole expense of ‘Freedom’ and we – insert – time into that. The ‘freedom’ part is always there. All we have to do is accept it.
Is one way better than the other?
That’s up to you.
