A cry for
inner freedom is heard coming from the heart:
"I need to be myself.
I need to know and become who I really am."
This cry begins a journey.
Becoming real is the goal.
The healing and transformation of memories, emotions, and attitudes
mark the journey's progress
as the living, inner Christ
becomes real in and through individual lives
and in personally meaningful ways.
Nor is the number few out from whom the cry is coming,
as an entire holy-whole--people of God
emerge and press towards being the Whole Christ--
the sons and daughters of light.
Ann K Elliott, 1975
