Liberation Is Not an Escape
We tend to believe that liberation is freedom from being human. We think that when we get enlightened, or awake, we’ll no longer have all these unpleasant experiences. In reality, there is no escape from what is. In reality, there is nowhere to go. In reality, liberation is recognizing that this is all there is, that there is no choice, that there is no control, and that there is not even anyone who could be liberated.
