Drop the Mic – Ep. 06 – Free Your Mind / Know Thy Self


Free your mind and the rest will follow, be color-blind, don’t be so shallow!  from Free Your Mind by En Vogue

It’s so common to throw around catch-phrases and cliches. In an age permeated by Marketing and Media, it’s no wonder we let “Carpe Diem” fly while ordering a Triple Tall Skinny Sugar Free Vanilla Latte.

So why then am I writing to “Free your Mind” and “Know Thy Self?”

I’m not actually, it is just the title of a song by Cut Copy that I got as a free download from Google Play as part of their Marketing of Media strategy for the Holidays and to push their product. Note: A Diet Coke and bottle of water sits within reach.

What does it mean to be Free?

Is it possible? I don’t know. Sometimes I feel free but does that mean that I am in fact free? No, of course not.

My personal opinion is that freedom in this Flesh based experience comes at its conclusion but what are we supposed to do in the time in between if Sweet Death is really the answer?

Whether Death is the answer or merely the destination that our Journeys each seek, I’ve only felt free when I am learning something about what makes me tick and others tock. In seeing how the workings of my +Being flip around in harmony (or at times chaos) with others, it is so fascinating and it helps me to let go of my Mind’s chatter.

“Free your mind and the rest will follow, be color blind, don’t be so shallow.” Can’t help it, I think and reflect deeply.


Note: I originally posted this over @Medium in the Oceans of Consciousness Collection.  Enjoy.
