Zen talks a lot about liberation and freedom and sometimes leaves us wondering - what is it for? What do we need freedom from? What do we need to be liberated to do? Getting clear about the nature of freedom usually involves cutting our way through a thicket of unconscious fantasies. One particular picture of freedom to wander the hills, write poems, hang out with your friends. Freedom from all the obligations of bourgeois society. What we think of freedom is rarely our friend and what we're really looking for is the right kind of fit and structure that will develop our capacities and allow us to function fully and freely.
