Are you as free as Manson?
Look at him.
He has no fear.
Is he evil?
What is evil?
Do you know?
Is he crazy?
Do you take comfort that you are not like him?
He found something at the end of himself.
Has he not helped to set you free?
Who is more free?
I say Manson had the last laugh.
You are Him and He is YOU!
When you see no difference
Between yourself and Manson
You are Enlightened
Does that piss you off?
Charles Manson: Everyone’s got something to blame, because no one wants to look inside themselves.
Reporter: What do you see when you look inside yourself?
Charles Manson: When I look inside myself? I see everything. I see all I’ve the good bad the evil I see the whole thing
Reporter: How much evil is there?
Charles Manson: As much as you see.
Reporter: What do you see?
Charles Manson: All of it. (laughter) Right down to peaks you haven’t touched yet. Dreams you haven’t dreamed, and worlds you haven’t conquered. The mind is endless. You put me in a dark solitary cell, and to you that’s the end, to me it’s the beginning, there’s a world in there…and I’m free.

I’m not keen on Manson, but it’s my belief that everyone does whatever they do for what they believe is a good reason. Cattle get slaughtered in slaughter houses to feed people. It’s not pretty but people seem to like the taste of the meat.
So Manson probably does have some special insights given that he has spent about 46 of the last 50 years in prison. There is indeed good and evil everywhere in the world and in every person. I think our job is to lean towards the good as much as we can.
Also Manson has probably had a lot of time to ‘meditate’ and is probably an expert in that area.
Interest post anyway, despite being a little about a man who did some gruesome stuff.

My thinking was, you must send roots to hell to rise to heaven, pick your language. Also, he is an infamous figure most don’t know much about. He is not a sympathetic character, instead he is You. If we are That, we are that too.
For me there is no good and evil. There is living for self with it’s causes and effects or living submitted to the awareness of what we are. Thanks for the thoughtful comment. I have been sharing this in several places with a lot of strong reaction. Reaction is good.
I am confronting my own ego here by looking deep into his eyes and trying to see the world even from his eyes. Peace.
