Hip Hop & Mysticism

Hip Hop is populated with the Gods and Goddess archetypes of today. There are Icons on every level of every culture. The point is to choose your inspirations. To choose your Guides and influences instead of having them chosen for you. Through meditating on the Hip Hop culture its possible to see evidence that Hip Hop is an archetype of sorts here to serve these complicated information saturated times with a fresh idea of what culture can be and how influences can be utilized. Archetypes that are Symbols that when invoked can be Used for self Healing, to Invigorate the community, and in works of manefestation.

This blog will be a workbook of sorts for the hip hop connoisseurs who are interested in learning to perceive whats next in a movement that has an imagination of its own. How to excercise our imaginations and conjure archetypes to move us deeper into the meaning of our art and this culture. It will provide tools for building your own understanding of what culture is and could be.

"When One is drawn into this still point, while the whole world is turning, there is a possibility of turning into love, into the eternal moment."

We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust.

God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches you by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly - not one.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

Jalal ad-Din Rumi
