Set your Self free

I liked this picture set against the idea of ‘set your Self free’

Wheel of imprisonment set your Self free HoudiniWheel2

In fact it is Houdini.

Most of our psychological and spiritual imprisonment is self-imposed, self-generated.

Letting go our negatives and realizing Self is the spiritual journey.

Rumi: ‘Only Breath’ video


Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion

or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.
