Free Your Mind Guide
Freeing the mind from limiting thoughts is not easy to do. It’s an ongoing project. But, our history tells us that if we continue to have faith in ourselves and our people, and keep arousing heartfelt love for ourselves and others, we can make progress. I trust we can do this today. This is the reason I published Free Your Mind: An African American Guide to Meditation and Freedom—a meditation book written for African Americans. This is also the reason I created this site.
My name is Cortez R. Rainey. I am the owner of Free Your Mind Guide, and the author of Free Your Mind: An African American Guide to Meditation and Freedom.
I was born in Kansas and graduated from high school and college in Georgia. After discharge from the US Army, I settled with my family in Baltimore, Maryland. Here, I’ve worked in public safety for over 30 years, and started practicing meditation.
It is my hope that my book and this site will help you to start a regular meditation practice. It is also my hope that your practice will help you to relate with wisdom and caring to the details of your life so that it can be more fulfilling and satisfying.
Moreover, it is my wish that you will not allow the daily details before you to keep you from seeing the genuine needs of others, the bigger picture, the panoramic view, and that when you are able to help others, you will have the heart to do so.
