Very few - if any of us - are completely debt-freeI think many people are beginning to feel like slaves. Even if they are not in debt, they are compelled...or feel like they are compelled...to constantly exist in a state that they do not like. We need to remind our selves that the keys are hanging right next to us. The world doesn't have to be like this.
To me, it can mean persons in bondage: legal, financial, marital,
fettered by chronic disease, debts, etc;
also "wage slaves" locked into jobs they dislike but from which then cannot free themselves;
to me it can also mean bondage to habits/compulsions/obsessions, from which it is not easy to free oneself.
