When the fog has lifted
You’re up there with the clouds
When truth is coming at you
And getting kind of loud
Then you’ll tell everybody
“Hey, it’s great to be alive
It’s a crazy kind of feeling
When the truth it does arrive.

The truth, it be in everyone
It be within ones heart
It was born with you, it lives with you
Of you it be a part
So let this knowledge set you free
There be no chains to bind you
And when it sinks into you deeply
All shadows be behind you.

Freedom is not about your wealth
Or anything you do
It’s not about just who you be
Or who recognizes you
It’s about the only freedom
The power just to be
 It be your authenticity
And it will set you free.

It’s all about just being you
Not letting others views
Make you something you are not
 When it’s found you cannot lose
It’s about you being who you are
And loving all of you
It’s such a wondrous place to be
A space worth heading to.

    I think that that to be happy in your own company, is most definitely a sign of freedom Paul...Thanks for your comments...Peter

    Peter, you've put together the perfect words here...all should keep a copy of this on their fridge, at least. I know I'm still in the learning stage, but can see glimpses. Well done.
