Earn Your Freedom

I have to share this post from Eddyfy. Are we born free, and then get shackled by the constraints of society? Or, are we born enslaved, and must fight for our freedom to do what we wish with our time? I think he’s spot on. Thank you Eddy.

Recently I read the phrase “Earn Your Freedom” in Rolf Potts’ book Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel. He says that long-term world travel is possible for anyone who adopts the vagabonding attitude. A part of this attitude is to earn your freedom. This means that you need to work. Get a job, any job. Work sincerely and mindfully to earn the money for your travels. Also earn a reference point to relate to the people you meet around the world.

The same is true for following your passions. If you want to be a self published writer then work on the side as a freelance writer to support yourself.

This got me thinking;

if you have to earn your freedom then it applies that you are born a slave.
