freedom from fear

The old slogan by Timothy Leary applies, “Turn on, tune in, drop out”.
I’m glad you found clarity of mind once more.

“Turn on” meant go within to activate your neural and genetic equipment. Become sensitive to the many and various levels of consciousness and the specific triggers that engage them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. “Tune in” meant interact harmoniously with the world around you – externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives. “Drop out” suggested an active, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments. “Drop Out” meant self-reliance, a discovery of one’s singularity, a commitment to mobility, choice, and change. Unhappily my explanations of this sequence of personal development were often misinterpreted to mean “Get stoned and abandon all constructive activity”.

  1. Thanks for your re-blog. I think the introduction you added is astute and to the point. I’m an advocate for unhooking media input from consciousness. This is part of “drop out”.

    This one line is so powerful:

    ““Drop out” suggested an active, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments.”
