As moments are lived, living in the moment, realized is more and more the evolving meaning of Rabindranath Tagore's "Where The Mind Is Without Fear." Realized is that freedom is the state of mind's absolute freedom from fear...its freedom from its very own inhibiting and prohibitive cultural indoctrination, its conditioned thinking. Shackles are not external, but internal...a mind fettered with thoughts regressive, wired to the past that has passed for ever, mired in doubts, courting bouts—intermittent and frequent—of fear: superimposition of the past on the present.
Realized is that this journey of realization is the journey of liberation, of the mind from the mind, reposing to, immersing and staying immersed, permanently, in the essence of being, inherently free, allowing itself to be guided as the tool that it is, relinquishing the superficial notion of being the doer. As it surrenders itself to the essence, the soul, and thus the Source of being, it ends its superficial reign, handing over its reins, with gratitude and glee, fully free, to the Source. And in such a state of awareness, comes out from within (a manifestation of a resonance, with a sharing by Neale Donald Walsch, on Facebook, on June 20, 2014), from the core:
Where the mind is without fear,
The path is absolutely clear,
As to that one does adhere,
For which one has come here.
