It's scary. When you begin to think for yourself.Now...I know it sounds like that would be second nature to most of us, but it's not. Don't sleep. You see, they don’t really want us to think for ourselves They want universal mind control It’s everywhere and it is so ingrained in us that we don’t even question it as much as we should It’s on TV through advertising It’s on the radio through “special features” It’s product placement during the Superbowl It’s It’s…. So much more than what meets the eye It’s persuasive advertising It’s “daily deals”, “fast sales”, “hottest events” and “get it while it lasts” It’s religion condemning what no man can predict It’s mega corporations and the “government” It’s “structured” educational curriculum It’s white history is history and black history is an elective It’s racism was 400 years ago, let it go It’s… Fill in your own blanks It’s dressing like a slut if you show more than the one next to you It’s double standards It’s you should walk like and talk like and move like that one in the spotlight It’s “relationship goals” and childhood folk tales “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage”…y’all know the rest

It gets scary when you start to see it…I mean SEE it That shit becomes blinding. You can’t escape it even if you tried…but you can pay attention to it Freely Stay with me It’s scary but that’s the intriguing part Everything has to have a “something” A something to draw you in I hear that “something” all of the time when I’m thrown into the above ..and I turned a new leaf by tuning into it

Ahh..man.. Has anyone ever talked to you about opening your 3rd eye? That’s too much for this post…

I’m mentally exhausted, but that’s positive It means my mind has experienced a workout and a workout and a workout

It scares me How in tune with myself I’ve become When I’m sad, I cry. When I’m angry, I scream. When I’m happy, I smile and bop around like a 5 year old. When I’m inspired, I paint. When I’m alive, I breath. I breatheeeeeeee. I am breathing Living

I’ll remove the shackles One by one I’ll let go.. Here I go….

THINKING IS THERAPY TOO.
