From Brain Pickings: In his 1981 book Freedom and Destiny, existential psychologist Rollo May explores how to attain self-liberation, a process that requires that we learn to want to be free.
“The pause is especially important for the freedom of being, what I have called essential freedom. For it is in the pause that we experience the context out of which freedom comes. In the pause we wonder, reflect, sense awe, and conceive of eternity. The pause is when we open ourselves for the moment to the concepts of both freedom and destiny.”
