If I am bound, my Father is not free.

W-278.1. If 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. 2 And 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. 3 If I am bound in any way, I do not know my Father nor my Self. 4 And I am lost to all reality. 5 For truth is free, and what is bound is not a part of truth.

W-278.2. Father, I ask for nothing but the truth. 2 I have had many foolish thoughts about myself and my creation, and have brought a dream of fear into my mind. 3 Today, I would not dream. 4 I choose the way to You instead of madness and instead of fear. 5 For truth is safe, and only love is sure.
