Inner Freedom: –

To be free is to be master of oneself. For many people such mastery involves freedom of action, movement, and opinion, the opportunity to achieve the goals they have set themselves. In the west that freedom means being able to do whatever we want and to act on any of our impulses.

But the inner freedom is a vast, clear and serene space that dispels pain and nourishes peace. Being free also means being able to follow the path of inner transformation. To achieve that, we have to overcome not only external adversity but also our innermost enemies: Laziness, lack of focus, and the habits that constantly distract us from or defer spiritual practice.
