There are two kinds of liberation.
The liberation from soul knowledge and the liberation from the material determination.
If a person is liberated from soul knowledge, then he is no longer connected to anything. He is ruled by fear and lives the maximum control of his environment. Seeks unity in the control exercised through him.
If the human being is liberated from the material determination, then he is connected on a soul level with All Being. He lives secure in the inner sense and is free from outer entanglements. He is truly free, for he does not have to control fearfully, nor does he expose himself to fearful control by others.
