Freedom means understanding. One has understood the game, and seeing that this is the way that the soul is prevented from growing, the way one is not allowed to be oneself, one simply gets out of it with no scar on the soul. One forgives and forgets, and remains without any clinging to the society in the name of love or in the name of hate. Society has simply disappeared to the rebel. He may live in the world or he may go out of the world, but he belongs to it no more; he is an outsider. "The crowd never forgives strangers, the crowd never forgives outsiders, it destroys them. It has to destroy them just for its own peace of mind." Courtesy: Freedom-The courage to be yourself. (OSHO's recorded lectures/St. Martin's Griffin publication)
