It is about freedom. However freedom is perceived by you...

"Freedom is an awareness of the spirit, which has nothing to do with three dimensional parameters of prosperity. A being can be rich or poor, old or young, black, white or brindle, Buddhist, atheist, Christian, Moslem, male or female, and be equally free or otherwise."

"The wise Creator within, who waits so patiently at the other end of the golden bridge with total understanding of the outer frail self, knows nothing but freedom. Freedom is a state of grace which inhabits the wise Creator within, always."

-Robert James Haywood, 'To Cross the Golden Bridge'
