There is no jail more effective than your mental jail, where bounded by your given beliefs and when you became your own warden.
If you want freedom, you should know it is always within your reach.
If you are afraid of what you might become, set up your own examined rules, make small steps… and keep on examining them and enrich them, through new learned knowledge.
Don’t waste your life. And don’t let others waste your life. Whether there is life after this one, or if there is reincarnations, this is the one you have access to at this moment. And it will not come back.
What if you will reincarnate into one of those who you encounter, or even, would be at your mercy?
If you waste the gift of this life, what makes you deserve a better one next time?
