Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.
Be not the slave of your own past plunge into sublime seas, drive deep, and swim far So you shall come back with self respect, with new power, with an advanced experience, that shall explain and overlook the old. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong . You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you’ll return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love.

Declare amnesty for the fool in you…..
