Depending on how you perceive it. Apart from the lack of food and shelter, they are freer than us. The homeless are not bound by the bondage of money which enslaves us. They are bound by survival in a city/suburban sprawl.
If I was to become homeless I would go old school, really old school and live off the land.
"The two most important days of your life. The day you were born and the day you find out why."
"The devil whispered, "you can't withstand the storm." The warrior replied, "I am the storm".
I wouldn't want to be exposed to the elements, the constant search for food, being dirty most of the time. and having no safe place to sleep. Constant fear of being raped or murdered. Not for me, thank you. I'll take my creature comforts anyday.
You forget, we volunteered to incarnate into these bodies to experience life. Yes, you are right. True freedom is not being in a physical body. My interpretation is the freedom within the fucked up game of life we play. True freedom is a given. Freedom (as I described earlier), whilst playing the game of life is the challenge to achieve.
