“Free your mind, and the rest will follow.” — En Vogue

Do you recall the infamous “Red Pill Scene” in The Matrix? It’s the one where Neo gets to choose between taking the red pill or blue pill. If he swallows the blue pill, he can return to his slime-filled prison. There he’ll continue his life as a human battery while his mind is distracted by the false existence that is the Matrix.

Or, he can go for the red pill, wake up from his ignorance, and experience harsh reality.

Learning to quiet your mind is like taking the red pill.

Being mindful means being present “Once you are present and centered and here, your mind will naturally quiet down.” Once we succeed in making our mind calm for at least couple of minutes and make it quiet, we discover a whole new world within ourselves. And there we find the source of individual development of each of us.
