Real Freedom Poem by Avvaiyar

Real Freedom

Rating: 4.5


Real vision
is that which sees
the One only
beyond the many;
Real valour
is that of the person
who has conquered for good
the senses five;

Real learning
is that which places
you in the state
of Deathlessness;
And real food
is what you consume
when you are totally
Liberated
and where you are not
under any command
and where you are neither
slave nor servant…

" Where you are neither slave nor servant." Reminds me of T.S. Eliot's " still point." Great job! Thanks for sharing. : -)
