Libertad | Freedom

Libertad | Freedom, originally uploaded by victor_nuno.

¿Qué es la libertad, que con tanta ansia se busca? ¿No nos veremos atados muchas veces por esa misma búsqueda? ¿No nos quitará libertad esa misma atadura? Mejor vivir fiel a tus principios, pero la cuestión es que no es algo individual: si unos no sienten libertad, otros tampoco la sentirán. Quizá sea mejor encontrarla colectivamente, como decía Gandhi: vivir sencillamente para que otros puedan sencillamente vivir. Bonitas palabras, pero difícil y gran lucha, puesto que implica negarnos en muchos caprichos. ¿Cómo vives tú?

What is freedom, when it is searched so strongly? Aren’t we binded often by this very search? Won’t we have less freedom due to this binding? Better stay true to your principles, though the point is that it isn’t something individual: if some don’t see freedom, others won’t see it either. Maybe it is better, to find it colectively, as Gandhi said: live simply so that others can simply live. Nice words, though difficult and great fight, as this implies to deny ourselves in many caprices. How do you live?
