Freedom bleeds within your heart. Freedom in the world is represented by broken chains, visible within the light. Speak your heart, loudly. Walk in silence when faith demands.

At birth, you were naked. In this nakedness, you were free. Experiences of injustice and ignorance take root and over time, clothe a person with the violent sea of emotional chains.

Man distorts and dents the individual of potential through the chains of ignorance!

    That was very strongly expressed and so very true.
    We are born Innocent and by way of ignorance and environment, etc.... we are branded with the injustices of the past.
    Faith, balance and self-esteem are very important to "Root Yourself then Walk Forward".
    Love It! LLR!

    One visual perspective for you Cora is "Lady Liberty." The depth of this symbol travels back to France. Liberty is the flame.

    I get this! I was reading a book the other night about the 'beginner's mind' as chldren/beginners we are open and believe that anything is possible. it's through our experience that we begin to doubt what we can do. Have faith and believe!
