If I am bound, my Father is not free.

1. 1If I accept that I am prisoner within a body, in a world in which all things that seem to live appear to die, then is my Father pris­oner with me. 2And this do I believe, when I maintain the laws the world obeys must I obey; the frailties and the sins which I perceive are real, and cannot be escaped. 3If I am bound in any way, I do not know my Father nor my Self. 4And I am lost to all reality. 5For truth is free, and what is bound is not a part of truth.

2. 1Father, I ask for nothing but the truth. 2I have had many foolish thoughts about myself and my creation, and have brought a dream of fear into my mind. 3Today, I would not dream. 4I choose the way to You instead of madness and instead of fear. 5For truth is safe, and only love is sure.
