Freedom in The Mind – My Journey Home

“We Seek Peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom”. ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

Freedom In the mind may seem easy to many, but only a few can for now relate how deeply it goes, and how letting ones mind free can improve ones life in all aspect, letting yourself go from those emotional attachments, physical attachments and every form of feeling that weighs on your heart is the true way to actually feeling free in the mind, and from the mind it will radiate to your surroundings and all you do. In seeking for freedom in the mind, we must first allow the peace to flow from the mind.
“Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes” ~ Mahatma Ganghi

Am going to be practical and as truthful as I can be in telling the story of my personal journey to freedom in the mind, and when talking about freedom, I am not just talking about being free from Jail, or from any form of slavery, nor am i just going to be talking about financial freedom.

The freedom of the inner man and how to be truly free from the mind after a traumatic experience or breakdown, freedom from negative thoughts and mindsets is what i am going to be sharing with you as i also learn along the journey.

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others” ~ Nelson Mandela
Was a very young boy when I lost my both parents, I think my mom lived a year longer than my dad, but that one year was like death to her still, from the stories I have been told. There was barely anyone very close to my heart that could have taught me what life was all about or how to be strong, how to become who am meant to be, even though I had elder ones, aunties, uncles, but as you know, no one cares for you like your parents would. Am not in any seeking pity party, because them not being around made life tougher, bitter, but made me stronger, wiser, and more determined to succeed and tell my own story, although i had to fight my inner demons to be truly free and confident of who my both parents would have loved me to be. That was the beginning of my journey, because I had to struggle in gaining confidence in myself, I seemed weak to those who did not understand me, and to those who understood me, wanted me to yield to the normal way of the society, and also due to the circumstances of my birth my parents always cared for me specially, so with that in mind everyone saw me as the soft, weaker one and that was a battle because no matter how much I tried to prove otherwise, i will always feel embarrassed trying to impress, then i decided to prove them wrong my own way, and the way the Universe has destined it to be.

Oh, I have walked this land before – Have wandered through some hidden door, Left footprints on a distant shore Then traveled ’round the bend;

I have appeared in many forms, And I’ve encountered many storms, Lived and died and been reborn – My lifetimes to defend;

When we shall wander back again, Neither knowing where nor when, No matter where our souls have been – The journey has no end..

Linda Ori – The Journey.

My Spiritual Path:

My spiritual journey is something I must confess will be very difficult to explain, but more will be told as we carry on this freedom journey, but let me just leave a little hint of how crazy it has been. At my younger age i was very close to God, I always went to church, even though i was the playful type, but God’s word never left my heart and still have not left. “LOVE IS MY BLOOD” yea that’s how deep I feel it.
“True freedom is always spiritual. It has something to do with your innermost being, which cannot be chained, handcuffed, or put into a jail.” — Osho
Was a choir member at the time but my aunt who was my guardian never liked how we spent late hours practicing so i had to quit. But as i grew older, i began to question all i was taught coupled with my experiences. Over the years I have sought for which religion actually practiced the love they preached, but I found out that it was only based on how the individual wants to feel at the moment, because i have met people from different religions who are genuinely nice and that’s because it comes from the soul. No man is actually perfect with love even though we try to love perfectly, but that will not align to the idea of the Christians.
“The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not “the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace – arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.” — Eckart Tolle
My experience under the Christian Umbrella has proved me right, a house that is divided can never stand, Christians are divided and most of them live fake lives, in pretense, and shadows. Trust me i have seen a lot of wolves in sheep clothing. Am not saying all other religion are perfect but with my little time under the Christian umbrella, i have nothing good to be write about them, but in general LOVE IS MY RELIGION.   It’s not like i had gone to seek the love of man, or gone to look at how another man lived his life, salvation is personal, but why are we here? why do we preach love your neighbor as yourself? We are here for each other, to raise the weak, to spread love and equality, what’s the point of preaching but not living in that manner? all of this led me to questioning how religion was brought to AFRICA. WHY? AND WHEN? How did my fathers live before religion or Christianity, I didn’t want to believe it was idolatry.
“The Religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology, Covering both the natural and spiritual, it should be based on a religous sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity, buddhism answers this description.” ~ Albert Einstein

My Quest for Freedom from My Mind:    

On this quest, I have still not found the treasures, but I only feel very close.

I don’t know where to begin, because in truth no man should hold anyone guilty for his own freedom, only if the is locked in chains against his will.

Sometimes it is not the physical chains we can see and feel that is holding us back, but the chains and locks we can’t see.

The chains of hatred, malice, guilt, shame, pains, low self-esteem, deception, fear and these feelings are like shackles we can’t see but drags behind us as we journey through life.

The demons I think they talk about did not live outside of us, but inside.

The Battle was within and not without.

The mind is the like an axe, a very sharp axe and the child must be taught how to wield it.

Captain M.
Those are quotes I would like to leave for you, at least for now as I will be sharing pictures and quotes of my deepest thought from my mind and other great teachers.

My Dreams & Aspiration:

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” ~ Harriet Tubman
  I once had a dream as a very young kid, I stood under the rain of fire and questioned God/Creator, no one was able to explain until I came to the full knowing of why i am here on earth, yes the dreams has come to pass and it was a rain of fire indeed. My dream in this life has always been the same, making earth paradise has been my dream since the day I knew that was what God has promised humankind, and in a way I think we are all on a journey to that goal without realizing it. yea I have big dreams to own a large animal farm, build big houses for the homeless and so on. but it all revolves around making the world a better place for the next generation. Am not expecting it to be easy, but I know no matter how little I try I will fill accomplished even if i could only change one person.
Fly away with your dreams Even if you think you can’t cope As our dreams are our visions Our destiny and our hope Don’t let anyone push your dreams And make them invisible Be firm and follow them Because everything is possible
~ Marinela Reka

Trusting Your Journey Quotes:

“Life isn’t meant to be lived perfectly…but merely to be LIVED. Boldly, wildly, beautifully, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically LIVED.” Mandy Hale

“Don’t be discouraged if people don’t see your vision, your harvest. All they see from their perspective is that you’re watering a lot of dirt….” ― Yvonne Pierre,

He who does not trust enough, will not be trusted. — Lao Tzu

Honesty is the best policy. If I lose mine honor, I lose myself. — William Shakespeare

To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead, you relax, and float. — Alan W. Watts

  • The journey really starts within. And religion helps a lot. I was a churchgoer since a young age too but I struggled with which path to take. So, I will try to accommodate the world of God with what people were expecting from me. And the real freedom came when I decided to follow my religion ( and it was a different church) no matter what everyone else would say. Friends said you become too religious, the family said you should not leave our church.

    But now I found freedom and peace.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hello Adyns68, Am very happy and glad you found your freedom, our religion is Love and it begins with us, we don’t have to be perfect to be accepted, even in what the preacher say’s in church, come to God with your iniquities for he has forgiven you. but it’s same people that criticize and judge you. even your family. 

      I hope they all find the true religion as you have found yours and they too will understand what peace and freedom feels like, the birds are even more free than we the humans that were told to have dominion over the earth.

      My Darling, Fly like Bird you are free and Loved.

  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts and your journey. It will surely inspire many, and actually it has inspired me already. The quotes that you’ve shared relates to me as I am also in a journey. There’s just one thing that puzzled me with what you’ve said, that you’ve not found the treasure yet but feeling you’re closed to it now. That’s exciting but may I know what is that treasure you’re referring to?

    • Hahahaha! Thank you so much Gomer, and i am very happy i have inspired someone today, and that my friend is one piece of the treasure i seek.

      My Treasure is the Happiness, Love, Peace, I give to you. that is all i hunt for in this quest…..and i am not sure i alone can do it, so am going to be providing support on here and other pages to help you. Stick around Gomer..

      You are Loved.

Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Hello SeunJeremiah, Hmmmm I am very glad you are inspired, and i want you to know today that those tough times were there to make you stronger, and it’s only in your mind you feel weak, take it out of your mind, focus more on your dreams and desire and do your bits, the Universe watches over you.

  • It’s like you are inside my head. I am also going through a spiritual awakening for some years now and the path is indeed very messy.

    I never went to church, I didn’t believe in God and I was never really spiritual until 4 years ago when I sat down and started my first meditation session. Everything has changed since then. Now that I think back, I feel like my life up to 23-24 has taken place in a different timeline and lifetime.

    I feel that I’ve gone a long way but I am still in the beginning at the same time.

    It’s so weird but once you start going down that road, you can never stop until I don’t know, until you are completely awake?

    • Hello Harry, welcome to the right page, you are going to learn and understand better as we are going to be growing with each other through this spiritual awakening, although i am still going through the process which began in 2017, it was magical but the people around felt i was going gaga or was having a spiritual attack from village people.

      At a point in time i really did not understand all that was happening but i knew it was not what they thought it was, but the enemies came for my soul and the final hour and they saw my heart was genuine and filled with love, they did try to take my life or at least mess it up…. long story but they failed and i lived and remained the man i am and even stronger and better. 

      the point of final awakening is acceptance of who you are, all you have done, your mistakes, your regrets and in all understanding that this life is all about energy, people don’t really understand the power behind ENERGY. feed on the right energies, take out any energy that will ever make you feel worthless and not enough. you are more than enough my Dear, and you are loved the way you are as long as you are happy within.

      Captain M.

  • Marvellous, is also the name of this journey that you have begun. 

    Many people long to walk the path of freedom and liberty. 

    You have embarked on this path to seek answers to the questions that dwell in your mind. This is a noble path to follow and many have chosen to walk it before you. 

    From the moment we leave our mother, we are alone to venture in this beautiful world. We all create different experiences and our ability to adapt to new and constantly changing situations is part of what brings peace to a troubled soul.

    Do you find that being orphaned at an early age has led you to seek these answers?

    What does closure mean to you?

    Paul

    • Hello Paul, Thank you so much for this, you actually reached within me. Being an orphan was one of the reasons I sought for answers, but seeing my family (Africans) WORLD how they are all suffering was also another. 

      I have heard the word Closure, but are you talking about like High Ticket closure?
