The egoistic mind is the root of bondage. The non-egoistic mind is the root of Moksha. When there is no ‘I’ or egoism, there is liberation. When there is ‘I’ or egoism, there is bondage, or birth and death. It is bondage when the mind is attached to any object or any sense-organ. It is liberation when the mind is not attached to any object or any sense-organ. It is bondage when the mind desires or grieves over anything, rejects or accepts anything, feels angry or happy at anything. It is liberation when the mind does not desire or reject or accept, or feel happy or angry. Emancipation is release from the bondage of the ego and its desires, of the ego and its propensities, its cravings for the sensuous.
Live in this world to benefit God’s creation and at the same time keep moving forward in order to fulfil your divine destiny.
