Freedom Sought

By Tony DeLorger © 2013

The world is filled with beauty, unimaginable, breathtaking,

and each moment of perception soothes the soul and stays uncertainty,

enlivening the possibilities of hope and a peaceful world.

Yet beauty is as much the beholders perception as it is the reality itself,

and in that, beauty can only exist in the heart,

an openness to the miracle of existence and an appreciation of this precious gift.

When a soul is moved by beauty it is inspired,

it yearns to move and the creative gives credence to pursuits of beauty,

following the stream of thought untethered by earthly limitation,

soaring like a bird released, seeking new realities of possibility,

and the expression of a full and giving heart.

When a soul is moved by beauty, it finds it's purpose and blooms.

Freedom sought, is a freedom realised, a soul opened to attainment,

and in the end, seeking is the key to the realisation it is a state of mind,

and regardless of external limitations, freedom within is what we already have.

No-one can take away our freedom: to be who we are, think how we will,

and it is our limitations only that can alter that reality,

create the stumbling blocks and walls of contention that can so affect life.

Life is filled with beauty, and ugliness, and it is our decision what we choose to see,

always layered for our perceptions, disguised and open as we decide,

life is a kaleidoscope of possibility, vibrant or dull, colourful or monotonic.

It is a sad soul that cannot perceive beauty, not recognise kindness,

and even sadder for the lack of love that can be expressed,

and worse with no recognition of any of it.

Freedom we have, seek expression.

However we see the world around us, so defines who we are, in that our choices both positive and negative, create the tapestry of possibilities and circumstances that guide our lives.

      I loved this hub. It is so true that beauty and our perception of it lies within us. Up and beautiful votes.
