We Americans like our personal freedoms: freedom to live where we wish, buy whatever we want, take the intoxicants that we wish, to name just a few. But what is the meaning of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" -- what actually makes us content, connected and joyful? How do we cultivate sustainable happiness?
What is it like to be totally free? When can you remember when you felt totally free? In moments of intense concentration or bliss, our sense of self is suspended; “the shell that binds me inside of myself is broken” and we feel we are suspended in ecstasy. Could we access this freedom anywhere, anytime? How?
