Carl Jung once said that "freedom is the willingness to do gladly that which I must do." We all have obligations and responsibilities in this life. Sometimes we tend to resent the things that we must do on a daily basis in this world. We may do them, but only grudgingly, with our hearts bitter with complaint. We hear our own inner voice saying, "Why do I have to do this; why do I have to do that?"— and we long for an escape into an imaginary freedom from our duties and responsibilities. We say, sighing, "If only... if only I could win the sweepstakes; if only someone would take me to Hawaii or Tahiti; if only I could run away from it all." Yet as Jung says, "Freedom is the willingness to do gladly that which I must do." For us, as human beings, real freedom comes as we fulfill with gladness of heart that which we have been given to do. Our responsibilities, our jobs, our family obligations are all opportunities for liberation and spiritual realization. It is through gladly fulfilling our tasks and roles in this life that we experience our true freedom.
