FREEDOM

A step to freedom,

If bitter bygones fade,

As deeds all done,

Now cannot be undone.

 

A step to freedom,

If detachment prevails,

Nothing to call mine,

Sign of a stable mind.

 

A step to freedom,

If equality perceived,

Decrease in suffering,

Experience of blessing.

 

A step to freedom,

If senses subdued,

Command with will power,

Command over laziness.

 

A step to freedom,

If struggle persists,

To escape bondage,

To enjoy liberty.

 

A step to freedom,

If human nature identified,

Contrast in being and acting,

Harmony of soul and body.
