There are 3 Freedoms:
1. Freedom from
2. Freedom to
The first two are ego freedoms. Freedom from is a reaction; the ego asserting itself. It is a negative freedom.
Freedom to is the positive equivalent. It is not against anything as is freedom from. Having the freedom to is a great boon; yet both are aspects of the same thing.
The real freedom is the third kind, transcendental freedom. It is neither freedom from nor for. It is simply freedom. One simply enjoys being oneself. It exists for its own sake and is an end unto itself. This third freedom occurs only when the ego is undone.
The ego is undone by being aware of how it functions. There is no need to fight against it. As awareness comes, the light comes and ego disappears like the darkness. Then there is FREEDOM.
