It is good to have goals to pave the path forward. However, when we get consumed in fulfilling those goals and forget to learn and enjoy the process, we become slaves of our own mind. We get caught up in unhealthy competition and get sucked into the rat race. Sadly, something that was meant to give us joy becomes a reason for suffering.
Freedom of mind, freedom from doubts, freedom from fears and separation and living and enjoying the present is true freedom.
