Where the Mind is without Fear

What does freedom mean to you?

Just living is not enough one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.
-Hans Christian Anderson

A Free Heart

Freedom to me is the absence of fear in your heart. When you are unafraid to do the little things. My world is often small and I keep it that way very often because my mind and heart are not free. I’d love to be free to have a coffee alone, to take the train, to travel alone, to take my own decisions without consulting family and perhaps even live alone. My mind is often afraid to explore these things and I think freedom comes when you are more secure and confident in yourself.



Freedom to me is a brave mind strong enough to explore the unknown, what is unfamiliar. There are times when I’m able to break these chains but not for a very long time now. Freedom is being able to completely rely on yourself for everything.

I have a long way to go in discovering my freedom and end the cycle of fearing everything so I can have a more open, fuller and beautiful life.

Freedom for me is having the courage to see all your little hopes and wishes come true. It is not in the outer realm it is what’s within us waiting to come through for a life that can be lived and not wasted away. Freedom is living out all the colors of the rainbow and not living in a dull grey.

Where the Mind is without Fear

This is my notion of freedom and for everyone there maybe different concepts of freedom and varying degrees of it. In any scenario it is something we would need to find within us to help us live more passionately and contentedly. 

The words of Rabindranath Tagore hold true where the mind is without fear and the head is held high. True words for freedom for a country and they apply beautifully to personal freedom as well. A mind without fear is the absolute freedom.
