While listening to “Say Yes” by Floetry a thought hit me…my mind wanders in funny tangets sometimes towards clarity.
In the video the lady is writing about how the guy makes her feel and the man was drawing a picture of her. Both in seperate seats, both thinking about each other.
The Chorus of the song goes:
“All you gotta do is say yes
Don’t deny what you feel let me undress you baby
Open up your mind just rest
I’m about to let you know you make me…”
Aside from the sexual reference the clarity that came to me was “Fill your mind with what you want/desire”. Of late my brain has been on a downward spiral of what I don’t have (no job, no personal income, no stability, no whatever). I have filled my brain with stress, sorrow, depression.
Last night lying in bed with Master I felt incredibly tired holding on to this stuff.
For self preservation I need to fill my head with better stuff.
“First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.”
