Happy Indian Independence Day!

Happy Indian Independence Day! Today Indian people are celebrating freedom from several centuries of British colonization and rule. This is a perfect day to explore inner freedom breaking free from the colonization and rule by anger, jealousy, and pride. The more we can rid ourselves of these thieves that rob us of our peace, the more compassion flows towards ourself, others, and indeed to all others. Then real happiness and peaceful of mind are experienced. Gratitude flows naturally often with tears of joy. We genuinely feel well on deeper and deeper levels. Our energy soars. Our healthy self-confidence, based on humility not arrogance, soars. Then we have truly broken free from the shackles and chains of self-cherishing. Then we can deeply celebrate freedom from colonization from the destructive emotions, and deep lasting happiness.
