I think we should teach students about freedom.
That we don’t have to succumb.
Succumb to the body, to the society, to the ego.
That we don’t have to react.
But rather, we choose to act.
We should teach students that the absence of rules doesn’t make us free, but subjects us instead to the tyranny of might.
We should teach students that the absence of external controls doesn’t make us free as long as we are the prisoners of our own thoughts and feelings.
We should teach students that freedom comes from within, not without.
That it is the realization of our will that liberates us.
That liberation arrives at the precise moment when we awaken to choice.
We should teach students that freedom is the will to choose.
We should teach students to stop demanding for freedom.
We should teach students to realize: they are already free.
And what is the responsibility of freedom?
To fill the world with truth, love and beauty.
This is what we should teach students.
