This Independence Day weekend, Fred shared and commented on some of the great Chan Master Linji's verses on true independence. While political freedom is certainly laudable, its capacity to create value in a society is limited by how the people in that society interact with one another. Fred pointed out that as long as we are bound by our past conditioning, our actions are likely to create suffering for ourselves and those around us. It is only by freeing ourselves from the bondage of this conditioning that we can truly be free to act in ways that benefit others. Fred showed us how Lin Chi's instructions, if followed, can give us the ability to act as truly free and independent agents.
