Unleashing Freedom Of The Mind

by Patrick Liew on September 28, 2011

The time was way past midnight.

There were many things I needed to do and deadlines to meet.

The workload has become somewhat overwhelming.

Even after I have finished my work and called it a night, my heart was heavy laden – not from unfinished task but from remnants of stress and strain.

That’s when my mind started to wander. It went on a charming journey through the expanse of space, time and history. When it returned, I felt peace in my mind to rest for the night.

As I reflect on the experience, it affirms my belief that our Creator has blessed me with a wonderful mind. There is nothing that can hold down my spirit, no limits to where my mind can go to.

My heart cannot be stopped from enjoying every passion and emoting the wonderful tapestry of emotions.

With my imagination, I can visualize the beauty of life. With my vision, I can capture the essence of living.

I can go to the ends of time and cover every space of the universe. I can be myself or somebody else, visualizing life from every angle and perspective.

I can walk down memory lane and be fully aware that I am living at the current moment. I can be transported through the corridor of time within split second and be at different places.

I can be in two places at different time zones literally at the same moment.

At the blink of an eye, I can walk down memory lane and be fully aware that I’m living at the current moment. I can be back to the present at the snap of the finger.

I can travel through time and feel both young and old… Hard at work and at the same moment, sitting around a campfire with my dearest childhood friends again… I can roam, carefree and aimlessly through the streets – enjoying every single moment…

Being in a crowd and at the same time, just being by myself… Alone, and yet not feeling lonely…

Reliving a wonderful phase of my life… immersing myself in the beauty of the moment and bathing in a spectrum of emotions… rhyming with the melodies of life and reaching its climax…

Running with the winds… swimming in cool crystal-clear water and amongst the most endearing fishes… standing on snow-capped mountains, facing cold wintry winds and sipping on creamy and sweet hot chocolate… splashing water on pearly white beach… staring into the vast expanse of the sky and mesmerized by millions of stars…

Enjoying every possible experience – and all within the confines of my mind.

At times when I felt stretched, I can hearken back to enchanting moments of time past.

The freedom that I can exercise with my mind helps me tide over the challenges of the moment. It gives me strength to carry out the obligations of life.

From the perspective of space, time and eternity, all the boulders of life look like sand. It’s not a wonder that the passage of time has been described as sands of time.

It affirms within me that all things, including negative experiences will come to pass.

Good times will always be back – and they are just around the corner.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
