    Ok...so in recent days i have been in thought and have been further awakened to things through God....My Question to you all is do you feel that one can achieve personal freedom through enlightenment of the mind.

    I believe in such an ideal. I have realized in thinking upon this how Limited the world is by thought...we are taught that we Can't do things....we internalize fears...we allow ourselves to be connected to the world by allowing oursleves to subside in reality and current state of things...We do out of necessity not what we love...granted im not denying reality as we are always connected to reality otherwise we wouldnt exist...but in OUR world there is freedom...unlimited freedom...freedom through the pursuit of love within reason and acknowledging in heart and soul that we do have such freedom...have u ever noticed when u do something u love u don't think about the here and now...you dont think about the amount of time u spent on doing w/e you just do...time n reality do not exist in those moments...we as humans are capable of living lives w/o time n reality being factors...it is the chase of love happiness and enlightenment i seek everyday ^_^

    I was reminded of the ability to pertain such freedom in this song

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruUNZfpq9Io - the song is beautiful and embodies the way i think n feel about life

    what do you think

    dat chat we had was filled with truths.. so do you still deny your unlimited potential in ur limited environment? ur tru nature? the truth?.... or maybe ur pursuit of love is getting the job done.. im curious.

    A strong part f the black liberation movement had to do with Enightnement, from the abolitionist, Paschal Bevery Randolph who started the Rosicrucian movement ,
    the inner teachings of the NOI,
    Noble Drew Ali,
    and Moorish Shrines,
    and the Ausar Auset community
    also Royal Arch of Prince Hall

    it was rumored that Adam Clayton Powell Jr , taught secret mystical practices and techniques to attain enlightenment that he learned from Abbysinian preists,and passed down from his father

    Sometimes it is good to read, now let me ask you a question

    what religion uses the term enlightenment and actually has it as part of it's sacred texts?
