Each of us is completely unique. Living from that, and being willing to be SEEN, takes an enormous amount of courage. We live in a culture that celebrates conformity. I don’t really understand why that is. Nothing in nature is that way. I have a huge collection of Crystals and minerals. No two are alike. We’re like that. The diversity in humanity is wonderful. Expressing the essence of ourselves is our birthright. Our sacred legacy.
No one understood that better than Dr Seuss. I still love Dr Seuss. His quote ” Why fit in, when you were born to stand out? ” still moves me. What a good question. Why fit in at all? And fit in to what, exactly? Trying to fit in to a spiritually bankrupt culture is sad. One thing I can say about growing up in the sixties, the ” Age of Aquarius ” was that it gave us permission to LIVE. To be free spirits, to love, to laugh, to dance, to sing. To wear flowers in our hair, to be anti-establishment. To march, to protest, to burn our bras, demand civil rights, women’s rights, human rights.
Now is the time when the Earth and all living things need us the most. It is a time of awakening to the magic within us. No more conformity. It is a time of radical truth, radical honesty. Radical love. Be who you came here to be. Dance. Sing. Celebrate your wild spirit. Yes, I believe in the wildness inside of each of us. I have never been tamed by life. And anyone who tried to tame me regretted it. It was never possible, because I have a love affair with the wild that lives in everything.
