“Our doubts are traitors,
And make us lose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt..”
“Normal” is a conformist concept born out of fear and doubt and everything that stifles our expanding, bright, light generating, natural creative potentials. “Normal” is the noose around the neck accepted by most people conforming fearfully to the sheeple trends of the time. Fit in. Be afraid. Mimic everyone else’s retarded, restricted, in-the-Matrix, self hypnotized, don’t-rock-the-boat etc mentality. I think “normal” is a disease. “Normal” people seek instant gratification and get exploited by predators thereby. There is no such thing in nature. Everything has a price.
We are designed to be OUTSTANDING. At least at one thing but preferably in everything we do.
But once infected with the sorry attitude of a conformist “normality,” we don’t want to upset anyone. Nobody who contributed to the advancement of humanity EVER fitted in. They were always rocking the boat and were generally uncomfortable to the status-quo quagmires of mediocrity. This is not to a say be a destroyer, the over the edge extreme. Not at all. The destroyers of history are forgotten in well deserved ignominy.
All variables of human love are about CHANGE, the nature of the Universe itself. Well directed change is mostly a tad uncomfortable at first but invariably pays huge dividends in happiness after. Through change it is earned. A new athlete suffers for about 8 to 12 weeks during which a TRANSFORMATION takes place. After that it’s all the reward in well earned: bliss, happy juices, endorphines and naturally generated glycogen-peak highs the body produces during brief physical intensity.
“Normal” people are fixated in dead, past paradigms, so they begin with the preconceived notion of, “I can’t” and so they can’t; having programmed that in. Driving with the brakes on without even starting the engine is guaranteed to go nowhere. So much for normal. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
Who dares may be considered abnormal or weird but guess what? Over time and persistence you remake yourself closer to the ideal you aspire to and ARE WORKING towards. In any field of endeavour, a little bit of something daily, accrues dividends which over time, almost imperceptibly become huge gains. This in all things!
When you discover new fears and weaknesses, and want to face them, that’s what they are there for, to be faced and made into steppingstones, listen to those who’ve gone before. We all need help and can learn from someone who has dared and won. Listen well. Embrace their advice. At least TRY! By try I mean at least a thousand times just to warm up.
Not saying you need to go out of your way to be weird. But “normal” people may think you are when you make the choice to actively step outside of The Matrix. If you let habituated, casehardened and calcified “normalness” bind your mind, you’re f**ked. You won’t get any healthy, beautiful, joyful lifestyle from fear.
Choice! Moment to moment choice is the determinant. Bold, quiet honesty in manageable installments. Sure, you may from time to time trip and make a fool of yourself, faux-pas (that’s French for “f**k-ups,”) but mistakes are the beginning of LEARNING CURVES, change and new living growth!
That’s my view.
