The freedom of being free from the desires of craving and aversion is in the present moment. It’s never something to be remembering from the past or something to be redeemed in the future.
It’s not bought with wealth or health, love or possession.
It’s not acquired by reading lots of books and accumulating vast knowledge of many things.
It’s not redeemed by huge amount of good karma from performing good actions or accumulating virtues and merits.
It’s not attained by after gone through lots of ‘spiritual healing’ process.
It’s nothing to do with extraordinary supernatural transcendental mystical experience at all.
One can be super wealthy, healthy, loving, possessing lots of possessions, read lots of books, accumulated vast knowledge of many things, and has done huge amount of good actions accumulating good karma, virtues and merits, and feels satisfied/meaningful/happy/proud towards all these ‘good’, ‘positive’, ‘meaningful’ and ‘happiness’ qualities, but the mind might still be determined by the desires of craving and aversion, there’s neither freedom nor peace.
This freedom is unconditional, being undetermined by any qualities of names and forms that is impermanent. It’s not about being free from bad condition/difficulties/unpleasantness or being in good condition/easiness/pleasantness.
One doesn’t need to go through any ‘spiritual healing’ process or experience any extraordinary supernatural transcendental experiences to realize this freedom.
There’s no craving/clinging/chasing after towards good qualities, good life condition, good health, good relationships/friendships, companionship, togetherness, ability, success, enjoyments, meaningfulness, or happiness.
There’s no aversion/fear/pushing away towards bad qualities, difficult life condition, bad health, bad relationships/friendships, lack of companionship, separateness, failure, unpleasantness, meaninglessness, or unhappiness, and towards losing the good qualities, good life condition, good health, good relationships/friendships, companionship, togetherness, ability, success, enjoyments, meaningfulness, or happiness.
There’s no craving towards something that is different from what it is now, that is not available now.
There’s no clinging towards something that is good now, that is available now.
There’s no aversion towards something that is not good, whether it is here or not here now.
There’s no aversion towards something that is good now will change and be no longer available.
One can be anywhere, doing something or nothing, and is free and in peace.
There’s neither craving towards peace nor aversion towards peacelessness.
One is peaceful as one is.
