All that produces longing in the heart deprives it of its freedom.
The path of freedom leads to the goal of captivity; it is the path of discipline which leads to the goal of liberty.
True freedom is within oneself. When the soul is free, there is nothing in this world that binds us; everywhere we find freedom, both in heaven and on earth.
The fire of devotion purifies the heart of the devotee, and leads unto spiritual freedom.
