I Am Free — The Release Of Hierarchical Thinking

My most mentioned piece of spiritual writing.

Today I wanted to share a brief text called I Am Free which I used to open my second book. Along with The Meaning of Life in 700 Words it is the piece of writing that most people mention to me or say they have printed out.

It is about equality and stepping out of dualistic perception by embracing all ends of the spectrum. I hope you enjoy it.

With love, Story

I AM FREE by Story Waters
Freedom is not superior to limitation; 
with this realization I am able to choose freedom. 
Happiness is not superior to suffering; 
with this realization I am able to let go of suffering. 
Abundance is not superior to poverty; 
with this realization my abundance flows. 
Nothing is superior to anything; 
with this knowing I step out from 
hierarchy, competition, and struggle.
In this state I do not judge life; 
therefore I do not feel separate from it. 
I am so glad of the diversity in the world;
in its reflection I see my own freedom 
to be whatever I wish to be.
We are not here to be one;
we are here to be many. 
Through seeing that beyond this illusion we are all one,
we free ourselves to be the many. 
I am not tied to any singular path to be a certain way. 
I am diverse. 
I am ever changing. 
I am an explorer of ALL as truth.
