The mind is never really truly free until it sheds all negativity and influence. Freedom is being able to experience your own thoughts and opinions without the ideas of another mind impacting it. When a free mind shares a thought with another free mind, a bond is created. At least that’s how I like to think of my experience with the elephants of Thailand. My elephant and I shared plenty of unspoken thoughts during my trip. In addition to the stunning scenery and peaceful whisper of the forest, it’s probably one of the times that I’ve felt most free.
Don’t let anybody or anything impede your freedom.
