If you love, give it wings to be free and it will return to thee. If you would have love, express love, give it wings also and it will come to thee. If you would have joy, happiness...give them wings, and they shall return to thee.
You cannot put love, joy, happiness, freedom in a cage and expect them to stay with thee. They shall always seek to flee from thee. Only that which knows you trust it enough to allow it freedom will choose to come to thee.
In your heart, you know this is true. If thou seekest peace, let peace have free reign in thy life. The Bible and other religious works say to love thy enemies, this is a good thing, for if you send love to thy enemies, they may yet seek to become thy friend. Love seeks love, joy seeks joy, happiness seeks happiness and freedom seeks nothing. It is already free.
We often equate freedom with having...but freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose, and nothing ain't worth nothing, but it's free. So says the song from Bobby MaGee. It's true, when you are truly free, you haven't anything left to lose. It's like fear, nothing to fear but fear itself. And yet we are afraid of losing everything. We spend so much time worrying about losing things, we spend little time on appreciating what we have. If we concentrate on what we don't want, that is what we get. We lose that which we do have. Let freedom ring.
