Being free is not being a slave to your whim. It’s doing everything you want to do, and not doing anything you don’t. The only question is, what do you want to do? What don’t you? Being free is something akin to not selling out, where what you want to preserve is your integrity, and you keep it. That is freedom. This is what it means to be born not of the flesh, but of the will of God. What those who do not have eyes to see can only perceive is someone who adheres to the rules of the good, and being a slave to what is right. But that’s the whole point of the good: it’s not the good if you don’t freely choose it of your own free will. The other side is being the subject of any random animal impulse that pops up. This is akin to walking through life unconscious. This would be what it is to be a waste of humanity.
