Nobody Can Give Us Freedom
Nobody can give us freedom.
We have to realise that we have always been free.
We may be limited in a material sense,
but pure consciousness is free.
Never doubt that.
Society is a place of confinement.
The deluded inmates try to convince us
that this prison is our reality.
It may seem innocuous, real and safe, but limits our view.
When we realise this, we can happily exist,
as this confinement has no reality.
We can work within it when we know that we are free.
A teacher can help us,
but seeing the inmates’ behaviour
reveals the ‘reality’ of our situation.
