Resistance To Freedom

We all talk about freedom and how much we want it. We long for the reins to be taken off of us so that we can truly be free, but do we? I believe we have a resistance to freedom, at least in a small aspect. If we were truly free, we would have no roots. We would be the leaf that scampers along the ground in the wind. For most of us, total freedom may leave us feeling empty. I don’t believe we want total freedom. Within structure, there is a certain amount of security. If someone cuts the strings, we free fall. It is the structure that allows us a certain amount of freedom, an amount we are comfortable with.
