Be Free | Philosophical Prose

Be very cautious
That you do not escape
One form of mind control,
Only to be ensnared by another.

For example,

Do not exchange government mind control
For religious mind control,
Or visa versa,
As each is just as potentially damaging
And limiting
As the other.

Always guard your right
To freedom of mind,
Freedom of spirit,
And freedom of creativity.

The moment
An organization,
Or individual
Enslaves your thinking and believing
Is the moment
You are no longer able to progress
or intellectually.

    Wonderful. We do indeed have to be free of spirit and mind. It is so hard though to fully understand what freedom actually tastes like. We are bombarded constantly from all angles by those who would say they have our best interest at heart. A very good point Anna, thank you. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
