Conversation with Myself

"I finally figured out the whole 
free will versus determinism thing.
 Oh? Which one is correct? 
Are you a slave, or are you free?
 Neither. There is no Me to be a slave, 
and there is no Me to be free.
 Exactly! And now, beloved slave, you are free! 
Your own shackles can hold you no longer. 
Go, live and move and have your being 
within me, and do what you will. It is all Good.
 Thank you, master!"
 --I AM

for Walt Whitman
