Gathering Minds

Are We Free Yet?

How is it that we are so easily convinced of our freedom while being completely bound and gagged. From our prison cell we imagine freedom and so it appears as reality. As we immerse ourselves in the appearance and leave reality behind we become entertained and in that entertainment our attention wavers from the serious to the superficial. The pictures are pretty, of that there is no doubt and as we succumb to experience, reality recedes into the far distance. It is there on that horizon that we place our hopes and dreams, empty as they are.

Freedom is nothing but a state of mind.
