The Beatles sang about the "fool on the hill", a philosopher who appeared to be silly when he was really profound. That is George Clinton, who says so many deep things in deceptively accessible ways.  Free your mind and your ass will follow is a prime example.

The more you plunge into the world of p.funk, the more you will be enlightened and amazed.

😔 This soooooo resonates:

Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own sh*t

Reginald, thank you so much for turning me onto George Clinton. I love it when this happens - when folks with a far broader background in music share their knowledge with me. You knowing my "backstory" regarding music, you can appreciate how exhilarating it is for me to experience "new" music (for me - even if everyone else on the planet knows it 😉) that totally resonates. Often it is the music itself, sometimes the lyrics, or both. High-energy.

My friend from Spain who is a part of the duo "L.A.Drones!" (fast, electroclash, very cool, sexy spacy DANCE music) has done the same ("Magazine" and "Kap Bambino" for example). Have become friends with members of "Sextile" too (post-punk, intense drums) and recently got into the music of "Kommunity FK" (after hearing them at a fundraising concert). There is so much music!

George Clinton blows my mind, though. 💫🔥

George has been blowing my mind my entire life.  As I've gotten older, my understanding deepens.  And experiencing him through other eyes, like yours, means a lot.  Just a simple catch phrase, like "funk-tism!", from the song FUNKENTELECHY, makes me ponder the idea of baptism via dance, "moving on past your conscious mind" (from MR. WIGGLES) into a spiritual state.

Just listened to Mr. Wiggles! Laughing and saying "Yes Yes Yes" at the same time. So ... TOTALLY THERE!  💃

... and then I hear:

"Livin' and jivin' and diggin' the skin he's in
Rumpofsteelskin"

Like, how important is THAT?!!!
WOW! 💥

P.Funk is the gift that keeps giving.

Reg, you're right about dance.

They say the two enveloping holy deeds a person performs with the whole body is dwelling in a sukkah during Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) and immersing one's whole body in a mikvah (a purifying ritual bath - one example of which is baptism).

"They" are wrong.
 
There is another completely immersive Holy Act.
DANCE. 💃✨

You know, another cool thing is that the music, the style, is entering my soul. In the late-60s and '70s music for me was more Acid Rock, then Bowie and Glam and a little Heavy Metal (and The Who, Stones, etc.). Then starting in the late '70s and through the '80s I was working like a dog. So I missed all of this.

Going through the P-Funk albums one by one, at first I was drawn to the more familiar psychedelic, rock, blues themes, but now something is happening. I'm finding myself being broadly pulled into the Funk! 💥😍  Hahaha, this is beautiful! 💃

Michael, the idea of you as a fellow funkateer makes me smile. Thanks for sharing.
Funk is its own reward.

Wisdom ✨

Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts

Travel like a king
Listen to the inner voice
A higher wisdom is at work for you
Conquering the stumbling blocks come easier
When the conqueror is in tune with the infinite
Every ending is a new beginning
Life is an endless unfoldment
Change your mind, and you change your relation to time

You can find the answer
The solution lies within the problem
The answer is in every question
Dig it?
An attitude is all you need to rise and walk away
Inspire yourself
Your life is yours
It fits you like your skin

The oak sleeps in the acorn
The giant sequoia tree sleeps in its tiny seed
The bird waits in the egg
God waits for his unfoldment in man
Fly on, children
Play on

You gravitate to that which you secretly love most
You meet in life the exact reproduction of your own thoughts
There is no chance, coincidence or accident
In a world ruled by law and divine order
You rise as high as your dominant aspiration
You descend to the level of your lowest concept of your self
Free your mind and your ass will follow

The infinite intelligence within you knows the answers
Its nature is to respond to your thoughts
Be careful of the thought-seeds you plant in the garden of your mind
For seeds grow after their kind

Play on, children

Every thought felt as true
Or allowed to be accepted as true by your conscious mind
Takes roots in your subconscious
Blossoms sooner or later into an act
And bears its own fruit
Good thoughts bring forth good fruit
Bullsh*t thoughts rot your meat
Think right, and you can fly
The kingdom of heaven is within
Free your mind, and your ass will follow

Play on, children
Sing on, lady
