Full Idea

Since in truth, bondage and freedom are relative, these words are only for those terrified with the universe. The universe is a reflection of minds. As you see many suns in water from one sun, so see bondage and liberation.

Gist of Idea

Bondage and liberation are relative terms, which only frighten those already terrified of the universe

A Reaction
