True freedom means being a master of our own mind. It does not mean following every urge or craving.
If you are on a sailboat, would you like to simply be adrift and go where the wind takes you, or do you want to choose your destination and sail towards it with intention?
When you are truly free, you choose your destiny and you are empowered to move towards it, regardless of your urges or cravings.
Meditation and mindfulness help us become fully aware and at choice. Through meditation, complete freedom is within reach.
