I would have heard the song hundreds of time. But for me this was a mere song—a mellisonant piece of half philosophical and half spiritual hokum earlier, to be honest. Simple, yet hard to comprehend.
On the big day, at the time, for whatever reason, I was obsessed with harebrained ideas, see, these harbingers—my boy and his girl—showed up, showing respect to me, no matter just only to cheer up a heartsick beau, and listened to his rigmarole. Moreover, they brought me a manna from heaven.

I told them, the friends with who there is no selfishness, the spur-of-the-moment decision that I made in the wake of the inspiration. They okayed…
“You are relieved from all bonds, if there were any,” said I.
In clear words.
Overcoming all craving, affliction and aversion.
And added, “Free like a bird now.”
