A conditioned mind is not free

"A conditioned mind is not free because it can never go
beyond its own borders, beyond the barriers it
has built 
around itself; that is obvious. 

And it is very difficult for such a mind to free itself from its conditioning and go beyond, because this conditioning is imposed upon it, not only by society, but by itself. 

You like your conditioning because you dare not go beyond.
You are frightened of what your father and mother would say, of what society and the priest would say; therefore you help
to create the barriers which hold you."

-Jiddu Krishnamurti
