You Are Not Your Mind

“Emancipate Yourself From Mental Slavery…only We Can Free Our Minds” ~ Bob Marley

We are all spiritual beings inhabiting human bodies, conditioned by our environment, culture, upbringing and experience. We are, indeed, born free, with a “clean slate”…but the minute we are of form in the world, we become a slave to our surroundings, enslaved by the “matrix” we are unwittingly immersed in from the moment of birth, the paradigms imprinted in our minds, conditioned by way of language, cultural mores, family values, blind patriotism, religious beliefs…our whole identity and moral code is shaped by our external environment, while our internal environment is equipped with all the answers we could ever want or need. To deprogram our paradigms, we must listen from within and allow our inner voice to guide us. We must cultivate mindfulness, an unbiased awareness that transcends not only the world around us, but also our absorbent sponge-like minds. Transcendental Awareness essentially removes the sponge, the perceptual filters that organize all the incoming stimuli into manageable compartments, freeing the mind from the constraints of self, leaving only an open receptacle, both full and empty at once, vibrating with cosmic energy. This energy within is in harmony with the Universe’s energy, also referred to as Source, Chi or God. When your energy is in alignment with the Universal Flow of Energy, all potentialities exist as viable possibilities, and all polarities merge into one unified point of singularity.

About Lisa Pearlman

I AM: a creatively inspired freelance Writer and iphoneographer/visual artist - Social Media Content Creator/Curator - animal rights activist - Voice for the Voiceless. I also identify as a "HSP", (empath or highly sensitive person). I feel like a modern day "Catcher in the Rye," on a mission to save the world, one sentient being at a time. But first I must turn inward, to tune into pure awareness without interference from the mind's thoughts. Connecting with Source at this transcendent level of consciousness, I am free to co-create my reality, one mindfully inspired moment at a time. I earned a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from UMASS-Amherst. My llchosen career path was in human services, helping adults recover from addiction and/or mental illness and reintegrate into society. I worked as a counselor/case manager in a residential mental health setting as well as in correctional facilities. I hope the content I create and/or share online (and in the real world) inspires others to help co-create a kinder gentler world. By spreading awareness of injustices and educating the public through shared content, we build rapport and develop empathy, identifying and promoting shared values like Peace, Love, Compassion, Kindness, and Tolerance. My other passions include Writing, Reading, Photography/iphoneography, learning, self-improvement, Animals, Spirituality, mindfulness, Meditation, contemplation, Philosophy, problem-solving, listening to Music, HipHop, Internet Radio & blogging. I believe LOVE has the power to heal all suffering. I am forever a work in progress.

  2. Hello Lisa, so nice to meet you and thank you for following my blog. I love this post.
    I have been a transcendental mediator since the late 60’s, my entire adult life using it to navigate this universe.
    I know this much is true about life and that is comforting to me.

    Also love your blog name, Hope to see more of you. ~ BB

    • Thank you so much for your comments. I was impressed by your post on missing children/Amber alerts, that I stumbled onto randomly. I’m glad u like my blog! I look forward to sharing ideas & thoughts and learning from one another. Maybe your wealth of experience could guide & strengthen my spiritual practice. Love & Light … Namasté … One Love

      • You have a lovely blog, feels peaceful & inviting. Thank you for your comment on the missing children & Amber Alerts. I have been a child advocate most of my adult life. I am a sworn CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) n the family courts. Adding a blog Bring Them Home was a natural for me. Giving children a voice in any situation is my only agenda.

        Please feel welcome to visit and chat with me about anything but in particular your own spiritual journey. Its an exciting time when you have found the path to your spirit and are practicing faith in something more powerful than we are.

        Your quests will be continue to be rewarding Lisa. But I have a sense you know this ~

        Sending you much peace within ~ BB
