Bound wrists vs bound feet

 

Being good is a good binding. You must be good or bad. Bad is like bound wrists. Good is like bound feet. Kabir writes beautifully about this, “God keeps your hands free so that you can even unbind your feet.”

Be good. It pays! Bad makes you mad. Good takes you to God, and the best way to become good is to serve others and try to make others happy. The climax of good is loving. Bad is anger, getting excited, etc; good is forgiving. Biting is bad, but to be bit is good. If you offer your cheek, knowing you could easily wring their neck, that is excellent.”
