The Way of LIBERATION - Independence to Freedom: Those born on the Way of Liberation come into this lifetime to define what freedom means to them. Often, the individuals on this path will learn that freedom is a state of mind. Sometimes on this path, the individuals born to it will find themselves in situations where they feel limited in some way. This occurs in order for them to discover the nature of true liberation. Stubborn individualists, these are people who can become quite combative when they feel others are encroaching on their rights. While their intuition is their great strength, they may confuse what it is telling them due to their fear of restriction. Often they seem to think that everything around them is holding them back or keeping them down. Usually the limitations they perceive exist only in their very active imaginations. This path calls those born to it to discover how their thoughts affect their reality and to transform how they think from negative to positive. This requires them to adopt a more conscious awareness of how their minds work and to become more objective. Ultimately they will realize that they are, in fact, the masters of their own destinies, here the Way to Liberation is in mastering one's thoughts.
