When you start being the difference of you, you don’t fit in the scheme of things. This is when you start shutting off parts of you so that you can fit.
We learn how to be normal in this world, and in order to do that we shut off so much of our difference and so much of the brilliance of us.
Brendon was different as a kid, and when he saw that he couldn’t fit anywhere, he felt that he needed to cut off the difference and learn how to be normal to fit in.
How many of you have told yourself it’s too hard to be different? What if people didn’t have to receive you for you to be the difference that you are?
And everything that is, and all the decisions you made with that, will you destroy and uncreate it? Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, POD and POC, All 9, Shorts, Boys and Beyonds. (TheClearingStatement.com)
At what age did you give up the difference of you in order to fit in?
When you start believing that it’s too hard to be different and that you need to be normal to fit, you go from the joy that’s available to not having that joy anymore. In order to be normal, you have to give up the joy of you.
The first part of going beyond normal is making the demand of you that whatever it takes, you’re going to have that difference of you.
That may be easy to say, but how do you get to it? Once you start by making that demand of you, you can start looking at what is different about you.
What’s different about you that you’re keeping hidden because no one will receive it?
Notice when you have those moments in your life when you have a sense of you. What’s true for you? What could you choose that could be true for you?
How many definitions of you are you using to eliminate the difference of you?
As you start becoming undefined, you start asking where you can find you again. Where do you recreate those definitions of you so you can fit again?
Recognize when you get that pull to redefine yourself, and just keep going. The difference of you is the brilliance of you. It’s the gift this world requires. When we create ourselves as normal, how much of the gift do we have to eliminate?
One of the greatest lies that keeps us separate is that in order to have us we need to separate from everybody else. That’s what everybody on the planet is doing.
The energy that we are willing to change and the way that consciousness works is not a linear reality. When we start making choices, the universe starts contributing.
It’s an energetic journey that we go on, it’s not one you can figure out in your head.
Most of us get told how to get our lives right, and in that we learn how to judge ourselves.
It’s not the force you have to use to change, it’s somebody’s willingness. It has to start with us. To see a different world, we have to change. You can’t expect anyone else to.
It’s easier to be that change, which is the invitation to others. It has to start with you.
