(C) 14 (LIFE/PHILOSOPHY) THE POWERFUL KEY


No man from outside can make you free
No one else should hold that key
No one else should have the authority
The Key is your Own Self
You alone can set yourself free
And fly away to the Kingdom of Eternity

We seek outside, we search in vain
We make ourselves go through so much pain
When all we need to do is look in
Shed our heavy clothes and be clear within
The inner sound of silence can shut all the din
And take you to a land of serenity

No man from outside can make you free
No one else should hold that key
No one else should have the authority
The Key is your Own Self
You alone can set yourself free
And fly away to the Kingdom of Eternity

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
