Of the thousands of pointers offered by Maharaj that proved to be germane to seekers, one ranks among the most pertinent and unequivocal and illuminating that he ever shared:

"...You are afraid of freedom!"
-Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

In the early stage of beginning some "work" with a guide, he asked a qualifying question: "How free do you want to be?"

The reply: "Why, totally."

His response: "We shall see."

And soon, he did indeed see. What was seen by both that guide and this seeker was that there was no more of a desire to be TOTALLY free than there is a desire among the non-Realized for the manifestation of the consciousness to end instantly.

It would be years before Full Realization happened, and it would not be until Full Realization happened that TOTAL freedom not only manifested but was gladly welcomed.

Why do persons (the non-Realized) really not find total freedom appealing at all, truth be known? What is it about most cultures that nurture and even reward dependence? What is it about personality and personas that automatically require dependence and co-dependency rather than independence?

The 6.7 billion polled worldwide who said that they are affiliated with an organized religion are taught early on to be dependent on one god or another (or even many). The millions in step groups are taught to be dependent on an external, otherworldly power.

Too, every ego-state adopted as an identity must have a co-dependent counterpart and will be dependent on another person to sustain the false identity assumed. (For example, a spouse must have a spouse to supposedly "exist"; an employee must have an employer to supposedly "exist"; a teacher must have students to supposedly "exist"; etc.)

Add to that the fact that fifty-percent of the people on the planet are Personality Types Sixes who are embroiled in fear and are thus dependent types; add to that a large percentage who are Personality Type Twos and Threes and Nines who have a strong sense of entitlement and are therefore dependent types.

In fact, most cultures on the planet inspire dependence rather than independence, so it is little wonder that so few will Realize Fully and actually become totally free. Yet freedom is the prerequisite for peace, so it is also little wonder that so few will Realize Fully and be at peace.

So the questions for every seeker and reader are,

"How free do you really want to be?"

"Is it possible that Maharaj's pointer - 'You are afraid of freedom' - might be based at least to some degree in fact?"

and

"If so, might you be interested in certain considerations that might assist in overcoming that fear of total freedom?"
