I posted this quote in my FB Group, RISE, this morning. As a member commented, on the quote, ‘I shot the sheriff’, a popular Marley song, popped in my head, and that’s what I put for a response. In the song written by Bob Marley (later popularized by Eric Clapton), I believe he is referencing an actual incident of self defense.
As I thought a little about that sheriff, here’s what came to mind. In my self defense, I’ve shot my sheriff….. that mofo that likes to hang out and patrol everything. Do you have one? That influential little bugger that ‘keeps you in your place’ – in lock down.
Are you ready to free your mind?!
1. Engage: Your mind, and very consciously decide NOW to shoot your sheriff – just don’t shoot yourself in the foot
2. Embrace: Your core essence – give the power back to yourself & out of the hands of others influences
3. Embody: Breathe in your Freedom and let it fill every cell – Enjoy the Freedom of You!
Justice is served as I proceed, no holds barred, uncensored. Free to act, think and speak what moves me. I’d like to think I’ve made enough progress in other areas as well, that I won’t be sticking my feet in my mouth, lol. But hey, what the hell, we all fall now and again.
With my new found freedom, I will choose to speak, as best I can, from positive vibes. Allowing my essence to be fully engaged, to embrace and embody my vibe in flow. With any luck, I’ll achieve some semblance of poetry, speak righteously, and in eloquence, as did Mr. Marley.
