The fake kind of freedom
Is very simply put
Saying and believing the things opposite to truth

If one has a belief about himself
It is of utmost importance that it’s actually true
Otherwise, all other paths lead to suffering

The path which always leads to freedom eventually
Is one of admitting the truth
Although painful at first it can be

But let me ask You this
Which would You choose?
Suffering for a lifetime or for a second?

Luckily this is not so dramatic as I made it seem like
In each given moment You have the opportunity
To admit the truth to Yourself

Although beware
Denying it all the time
Will only lead to suffering
