I am free.

In the middle of chaos – in the middle of an upside-down world – I am happy.  There is nothing he can do to take that away from me.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.                                                                ~ Romans 8:38-39

Holy shit.  I get it.  Today, in this sunshine moment, it rings true and clear and my heart shrieks with laughter at the simplicity of it all.

I am free.

None of the things that make me happy can be taken away by a court.  No judge can reach his hand down into my soul and remove that which radiates joy and life and love.  It is meI am life.  I am love.  I am joy.  The Universe is my body, my soul, and my mind.  I am that which I have been seeking.

I am free.

Imagine… I got all of this terrific insight from a Katy Perry song, Part of Me, today:

Now look at me, I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You won’t ever put me out again
I’m glowing, oh woah oh
So you can keep the diamond ring
It don’t mean nothing anyway
In fact you can keep everything
Yeah, yeah
Except for me

This is the part of me 

that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me
 that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no (away from me)
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
 that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no 

 My light has been lit.  Am I shining?
