Live a Life You Love.

Living in Freedom

'Living in Freedom'

When I feel
The heaviness of my body
As a boulder on the ground,
And the saltiness of my tears
Like a river streaming
From the vast ocean of my eyes,

I see that this body is not My body.
But belonging to the Earth,
And only an extension of the Earth.
Like a tree or a blade of grass
Emerges out of the ground,
Eventually returning
Back to its origin.

When I see the mind changing through characters,
Commenting and complaining,
In fear and in desperation,
I see an ancient computer
Struggling to stay intact.
Ferociously trying to protect
Like a fierce parent,
Only staying true to its nature
To serve its child and keep it alive.

And I see that these thoughts are
Not actually My thoughts,
And this mind is
Not actually My mind.
But an extension of an ancient mind,
Passed from generation to generation
Through the lineage of the victors,
In tandem with the body,
So that the next child may do the same.

It’s in this moment
When the Truth inside
is most easily touched…

And there’s a surrender
Beyond words or understanding,
Which lets the Heart crack open
And Divine Love flood out,
Filling the body
And changing one’s destiny...

Illuminating meaning
And revealing the innate experience of Life...

It’s inside this experience of the moment
Where all things have been set right,
All has been forgiven,
All has been accepted,
And there’s nowhere to go
And nothing to do
But Live.

It’s in this moment now,
Where what’s there is only Freedom,
Who’s here is only Me,
And I am Love
And I am Alive...
