As a human being, everyone has aspirations, dreams, desires. But only few actually pursue them. Why is it? How can we change it?
As the author of the book says, it is about freedom. We want to be free from cultural conditionings. We want to be free from physical limitations of forms. We want to be free from prisons we create for ourselves.
"Why, having been endowed with the courageous heart of a lion, do we live as mise?" No offense to mise though.
The book quoted John F. Kennedy, "Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth." To be free, we need to be ourselves. Know thyself and be thyself. It boils down to this simple sentence. It's so simple yet so hard for most of us. I read the book three years ago once and I wanted to read it again. So, I started reading. Even though I just started, I feel the energy of the author. This book is one of my favorite books, which I love to read again and again over time.
