Freedom...

I woke up this morning and it hit me: "I have no attachments." Now, there have been days where I've felt that but it was from a much different place as in, "Poor me, I have no attachments. I'm alone." But today, it's like, "I have no attachments. I'm alone. I'm free. My life is my own. I can hop on a plane tomorrow and leave town and never come back. I can start a business. I can start a relationship. I can stay in bed all day. I can do anything. I have no attachments. I owe no one anything" It's incredible really. I can't recall ever being in this place before.

There's this sense of peace welling in my heart today. Like my heart has breathed a cosmic sigh of relief. I'm coming to see that the only confinement I still have in place is the one in my own mind. And even that prison seems to be shifting. I can see it now for what it is. I can watch it and realize that it's not me, not who I am at the core of my being.

So, what will I do next? Hmm...
