Sometimes it is difficult to truly free your mind. There are so many things happening in the day to day grind that you can easily lose focus of what matters. This happened to me. However, through all of the muck and turbidity of uncertainty, I was able to find truth when I finally freed my mind. It was then that I was able to fully embrace different kinds of philosophy and have my mind expand to the farthest reaches of the universe.
While this experience has been amazing for me, It still burdens me that there are people who are still stuck on the other side of free mind philosophy. It is because of this that I have decided to write a little anecdote of how I came to be this way. In doing so, my aim is to shed light on the process of the free mind philosophy so that others can find the clearing in the path as well. Keep reading for more info!
Freeing the mind
I was stuck in a cubicle job that I hated for a very long time. It was the worst. I just went through the motions in college an ended up with a degree that I didn’t even really like. That was tough.
So here I am, without hope, sitting in this cubicle as the life was slowly draining out of me. I was stuck pasting the same stupid link into every email: http://www.oklahomacitytrees.com/tree-service-oklahoma-city/. It was stupid. I was stuck trying to convince my clients to hire a commercial landscaping company, and it sucked. I couldn’t stand it. I mean, who really cares about emergency brush removal during storm damage? I certainly didn’t.
Anyway, as I was wasting away, I felt the desperate need to preserve my soul. I would do whatever it takes. So, I decided to take a spur of the moment trip out to the Rocky Mountains. I booked a flight to Denver, and away I went. It was scary to do something so out of the ordinary, but I knew it had to happen.
I took a bus from the airport to a remote place abound 90 miles outside of the big city.
And there, I felt something that I had not felt in a very long time. I was alone. It was quiet. But the most important part was this – I could hear myself think.
And that was it. That was the turning point. I realized that I had to make sure to let my mind wander and be away from all of the rigamarole.
And now I am free.
