Some people who have walked free from a term of incarceration will tell you that the true feeling of liberation which they came to encounter is a
Being reintroduced back into the free world suddenly re-involves your personal freedom to choose your new direction , all those choices become yours
once again, and all at once.
Looking back , you have survived a hard time , and looking forward, you are now stronger and wiser , and on a high , since liberation is having its
The urge to party , to let down one's hair and dance , is strong . Other people's thoughts and mundane lives all become secondary to this feeling of
lasting happiness and deep satisfaction .
The significant others you meet will notice the shining in your eyes , and your exuberence may become contagious or even sexually attractive to others
, because you once again have contacted directly with your deep vitality and natural buoyancy.
Your regrets and previous problems become a part of the past when you gain a new start , your hopes and aspirations take over instead .
There is nothing quite like liberation , but nevertheless it takes incarceration to realise it . Even those who had a hard time in captivity have
enough relief to raise a smile , to shed a tear in compassion for themselves , and they will know they can build up to strength again , and be
thankful that their experiences didn't kill them . A good example is Terry Waite , just look at the smile upon his face upon release and you will
The great thing about the experience of incarceration is that one day , the experience of liberation follows from it.
And similarly ,
The great thing about being lied to, is that one day , you will reunify with the truth, in much the same way as a captive reunifies with their
When you walk away from the lies of liars which held you back , stopped your progress , hindered your escape ,

The process of liberation and enlightenment is about letting go , about accepting , about opening your mind , and about moving forwards . It's about
you having learned from your mistakes , if you were in prison , and it's about you recognising and being trusted to deal with your illness , if you
were in hospital .
We all need to know these things because the normalcy of mundane life teaches us little . Experience however , even of the experiences of others ,
gives us knowledge , power , wisdom , and true freedom. And these are things we want in our lives , and for our family , our friends , our species ,
our progress .
It was one small step for man , but one giant lie to mankind . But that is OK , excellent in fact , because we know where these manifest lies , this
mass incarceration of the minds of mankind will lead eventually , soon perhaps . And that is to good things we will like , and better experiences we
will enjoy . To emancipation, to the experience of liberation and to the hard won feeling of true freedom . To winning our consciousness back .
