Everyone You Didn't Meet Could Be Your Teacher Funkadelic Style

This is sort of a follow up to a post I wrote in August of 2017.  I was born at the very end of the 60's, the Summer of 69 to be exact. A time of transition I'm told from the days of peace and love hippie movement to the Funk of the 70's, LOL. 

This past week I have been re-reading a really great book about Jarvis Jay Masters, A Buddhist on Death Row. A lot more on that great book to come in the near future. If you haven't purchased it yet, I highly recommend it. 

So in this book, one of the many lessons Mr. Masters learns is about learning to watch his mind and freeing it from the preconditioned restraints that life itself had put on him. As he is contemplating this a song that would be played often in his youth came to mind by the Funkadelic's, "Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow."

Everyone you didn't meet could be your teacher.

  



Funkadelic's, "Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow."


The lyrics to this next song are loosely based on a combination of a book called "As a Man Thinketh", a literary essay by James Allen, published in 1902, and the basis of The Law of Attraction (you reap what you sow) It starts off with a very looooooong instrumental intro, it puts you in touch with yourself. But don't stop there is more, stick around it gets even better.....let it speak to you. You won't regret it.


 

Funkadelic's "Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts"

Have you come across anyone or anything in your path that has opened your eyes to help you make sense of a teaching that you have been contemplating? 


Have one or more of those eye-opening moments come from an expected source?
