There is always a choice.
Freedom is attained one step at a time.
But if you want joy, renounce the world now.
Control the sense, and stop desiring things.
Letting go of things is the path of the ascetic.
To be attached to anything results in delusion.
On this path, even the body is burdensome,
So why take more baggage?
Your reward will come when you cease maintaining
The illusion of “I” and “mine.”
Only sorrow can come from clinging to likes and dislikes.
Those who renounce everything will find salvation.
All others will remain in delusion.
