The Paradox of Freedom

An arctic explorer tells about a summer expedition where he and his party gathered a selection of native birds. These birds were kept caged but well cared for during the long voyage across the ocean.

One day a particularly restless bird escaped from its cage and took off in flight over the ocean. “Well, that bird is lost,” thought the crew. But before the end of the day, much to their surprise, they saw that same bird flying back towards the ship at a rapid pace.

Looking spent and breathless, the little bird dropped upon the deck of the ship and surrendered itself. It no longer saw the ship as a prison, but as a refuge. The ship was the only way to get across the deep wide ocean. Freedom is a paradox.

A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.
