“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
‘Cause none of them can stop the time” Bob Marley Redemption Song.
OOH La La ! What a beautiful song from Bob Marley that is deep and meaningful but is still able to soothe the mind. I use this song to emphasize that we are the key to releasing our minds.
Every day we complain about life’s issues because we fail to act on the word of God. God says in everything give thanks, that is, give thanks for the good, the bad and even the ugly things in life. Don’t you know that such a lil thing as giving thanks can benefits us greatly!
When we give thanks we bring a new perspective to a situation. A new light is shone on it. We may even begin to forgive ourselves in the process because face it, we are our own worst enemy. We condemn ourselves much more than anyone else would. So I have a question “Are we devils in disguise since the devil is the accuser of the brethren?”.
Let us instead, go towards the path of having a heart of thankfulness leaving the old grumpy man behind. Let us not enslave ourselves by our words. Let us shift into the realm where the conceivable is believable. remember, we alone can free our minds.
