Authority beyond all authority

I suppose all of these intuitions can be traced back to childhood when it was utterly obvious that any authority outside the bounds of my own perception was false and completely powerless over the content and direction of my thoughts.  In this way, freedom was also a self evident fact of life which sprang directly from this exhilarating absence of other-ness, hierachy and the need for any particular becoming or achievement.  And I can very well remember the experience of being exposed to different forms of authority, particularly those that seemed to want to direct my life in a certain way, and the joyful experience of watching each of these authoritarian ideas simply dissolve into nothingness in the light of this inner freedom.
