Freedom and Love

I read a nice text here:

Freedom comes from within. And most people are not free at all, but bound by their endless desire for material things, drama, a false idea of love and endless distractions. Most people mistake freedom as the ability to indulge in the addictions of their ego. Just as most people mistake love for possessiveness and emotional clinging. Love is something that exists within us all, something for us to give, but it’s never something to get. It can never be possessed or desired. The moment you want it, it becomes unattainable. But if you know that you are love, then you feel it and can share it. Just like freedom. The moment you seek it, the moment you want to do something to get it, it becomes out of our reach. Freedom becomes a goal, a goal which enslaves you.
