Freedom From Chains

Freedom from chains
Self imposed chains  
From a disconnection with source
Trying to control the uncontrollables
Is a chain
It’s like paddling against a rushing river
To reach the adjacent shore
One can move through force
Using all his energy and
Closing his awareness
As he fights
One can chain his mind

I’d rather float with the current
Bouncing over rapids
Staring at the clouds and
Hearing birds sing the song of praise
As the current
Places me gently on the shore
