Bound From The Inside

Updated on October 24, 2017

I Have The Greatest Freedom

Even though I fail to move

There are no limits

Constantly I feel restrained

What is stopping me maybe stopping many

From the accomplishments of all our efforts

We can look beyond

Instead we look away

As if we are ashamed and disgraced

There is love all around us

Yet we feel hurt

Left out and forgotten

Desire can take us to anywhere in this world and beyond

To often we never leave our own 4 by 4 imaginary cell

When we learn words of great expectations

We also accept great doubt

People we know and love

Bring us down

Gifted with a body so magnificent in unlimited ways

We slowly harm and destroy for no reason

With the ability to sleep and refresh

We constantly deprive ourselves of all our basic needs

Animals remind us of a love so true

Yet we forget and rush through

With words we can communicate across the globe

To often we are found speechless and shy

By all means find the love that keeps us always thriving for more

Leave your troubles at the door

Walk inside

The mirror on the wall

Sees you

Believes in you

You are left with many difficult questions

Where do we go from here ?

You have found the answer

Anywhere your hearts desire

      Nellieanna That is an even better way to write down questions. I hope Gypsy Rose tries your way. I try to learn as much as I can about what we all can accomplish. The truth is we can solve any problem we put our mind to it. This day and age people are all over the place and scatter brained and without having focus you accomplish little. It is so easy to get off track and distracted by so many influences. I try to tune out the world and find me time to follow my dreams to positive results. I try to think of our minds as laser beams of ideas. If we focus the light on one spot you have incredible light. If you spread it over a wide area you can barely see any light at all. Thank you for reading and commenting. Adding to the enjoyment and satisfaction of life. Pleasant dreams.

      Before I reply to your reply to me, I want to mention something about your reply to Gyspy Rose Lee about writing down one's question and then answering as one sees fit.

      Years ago I stared writing a 'letter to God' every day and saved in pretty little blank books. My letters to Him were full of all my questions, quandaries and frustrations with whatever was currently happening. I was struggling with a new career and its many challenges, with distance between myself and family members, with general unanswered questions and hopes in my personal life.

      So, after each of my letter to God, I answered them as I thought HE would see fit! What an eye-opener most of 'His' answers were, though they came through ME! They had wisdom I didn't realize I had inside me! I still can't say whether I had it 'in there' all along or whether it was being planted 'in there' because I was asking for it!!

      In some of my letters, I included little drawings about what I was asking, as I would have in a letter to a friend!

      I still have those little books filled with my letters and 'His" answers, and they are among my treasures!!

      Gypsy Rose Lee Questions are good. Don't stop asking questions. Take the time to write down your questions and put the answer you think applies. Later one look at the questions again in a week and see if your answer is still the same or it has changed. Our minds can do anything we want them to do. If we program them for good the good will over flow with joy and happiness. We create our world. We have a chance to make something special or drown in our own sorrows. It is up to us to see we have a lot of good to still share with the world. The world is a better place because of us. Keep talking and even if it is painful we have the ability to work through the toughest times and find good. Thank you for reading and sharing. My personal journey is tough and difficult. It also is splendid and amazing. Thank you for reading and sharing so many difficult thoughts. Treat yourself to your favorite breakfast and pamper the you that needs you. Have a beautiful day.

      Nellieanna Gifts that are used are a wonderful blessing. Gifts that are forgotten or misused are really wasted and it is so sad to see the lost potential. Look around and see all the talented people but for one reason or another failed to use their gift and all the benefits it offered for them and return help so many more through that persons kindness. I am trying to slow down and feel the calming cool breeze outside my window. It is easy to get caught up with the rush, rush of society. Always in a hurry to get no where. My job revolves around getting out food in a fast, timely manner done right. When we are busy the pressure is on and the same rule applies. Constantly there are uncontrollable circumstances that fowl up the best made plans. You have to be quick thinking on your feet and roll with the punches. Sometimes things go smooth and sometimes things are all upside down and awful. When the day is done it is soon forgotten until next time. Then we do it all over again. I think my next life I want to be plumber paid well to come into tough situations nobody else wants to deal with. Leaving someone happy for a job done well. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. Have a beautiful night. Kari Poulsen Maybe so when it does happen we appreciate it more. Thank you for reaching out and commenting. I think we just have to stay focused and do our best and sooner or later it will work out. Thank you for taking your time to comment and leaving more thoughts to consider. Have a great day tomorrow.

      Yes, so truthful, Michael! We do have ready access to our own inner interpretations of what is experienced, and it can focus on our liberty OR what seems to be our chains. We do have access and control of which choice we make.

      The first love one needs to cultivate is the love of oneself as a real and deserving person, friend, mentor and 'sounding board', to be always immediately and easily available to comfort and cheer oneself, even when no others may be "there" as needed.

      The gift of being able to write is also a gift in always having easy access to seek, consult with and interact with oneself!

      It is so hard to break free and really go for what you want. :)
