Poetry the Essence of Mind in a World of Distractions

The roots of poetry and storytelling first verbal the written, is most important secret of how humanity survived throughout the ages. When an eager mind reads uplifting words and catches the evanescent breeze of liberating thought, there can be no return to darkness. Liberation poetry is the sustenance of the mind and the key to humanity's success. Poetry can lead us to the creative right cerebral hemisphere of our fabulous brain. From that point onward you will realize your essential aspect of creativity, and wonderful thoughts will flow magnificently.

Starting a Quest for the Liberated Mind

One beginning could utilize comprehensive literature and fine art; those endeavors that educate and elucidate as much as they entertain. Nineteenth Century Romanticism swept away old shibboleths and a new secular enlightenment began. The roots of slavery were being cultivated out of the consciousness of that era by brave thinkers, scientists and daring pragmatic engineers.

What Will be Our Future

Our task in the Age of the Internet is to reincarnate a creative, freethinking and caring global community, as we make our way toward and then beyond the stars. Our path is up from darkness and ignorance, in an ascent of mind into the light of rational freedom.
