Bound am I not with chains of mortal flesh,
Nor doth the fetters thereof cut the flesh
Neither doth my heart bleed within me
And crieth for the freedom of the soul.
For surely as I knoweth of the Spirit,
And in the wholeness thereof ~
And it bindeth me not, nor cutteth the flesh,
Neither doth the Spirit bleed;
For there is within all these things of the Spirit
Only that which is complete unto Itself
And in such completeness do I find Immortal Joyousness.
