The State of Freedom

A journey of Truth into the mind’s sanctuary
with the destination of inner Freedom

a book, a message, a way to live

My book “The State of Freedom”
is nothing but the confession of my slavery.
Whichever degree of freedom I have attained
has been started from this very confession
and will be based there forever.

The author

The State of Freedom is an inner travelogue. It describes in every single detail the turbulent and adventurous course of a limited mind that is enslaved in its own habits and convictions, towards inner freedom.

Step by step, minute after minute, day after day, this unhealthy suffering mind gradually activates its creative fantasy to finally reveal healthy outlets, which lead him, not effortlessly, not without relapses, not without falls and restorations, to the desired goal, Freedom, which obligatorily passes through Truth, no matter how rough and often offensive Truth may be for the ego of the mind.

This entire inner course is described by the author in four large units (route towards the decision, reconciliation, liberation and companionship) in an extraordinarily analytical way, managing to keep the reader’s interest unreduced, as he may see in this spiritual struggle his own self, the hidden and unconfessed painful history of his own life.

The State of Freedom is a self-help book. However, it has been written in a very vivacious narrative way with many colorful pictures, mainly in the first person and in present time. We could call it an “inner novel”.

In this book the author often places his social reputation at risk by waiving his fear for the sneer that he could receive from a portion of the reading public. Thus, he dares to expose to the reader the innermost unhappy sides of his mind in a narrative way and share them with him, having set the liberation of both as his ultimate goal.
