The CruciFiction:

I thought I was free yesterday.
Today I know I wasn’t.
Tomorrow I’ll realize I’m not.

I now know I’m freer than I was,
but not as free as I shall be.

Yesterday freedom was in my sights.
Today it is in my hands.
Tomorrow I will be in it.

Perhaps soon my mind will open
to what true freedom is,
and I will find the courage
to soften my heart
and live in what is completely.

Then I will realize that
freedom was forever mine,
and that it has always been
a matter of my own perception.

And I will look to see from whence I came
upon all the residue of laid traps
set by my fearful hands
lying open and empty behind me.

(Do you want to realize you are not really trapped, and to learn how to live in the freedom you already possess? Join The Lasting Supper!)
