The Freedom of Being

Inside lies dormant the soul birthed from a source that has the answers, yet we refuse to look inside, open the box, see once and for all the divinity within us.

We are afraid that the answer will not come by cracking open something unknown. Mystery is for the courageous, for it takes courage to want the suffering to end. If it ends then how do we know that we are alive? Is…
