Not fitting in is the bravest thing.
Sounds easy, we all think we are not part of the crowd.
But truly, when we deep down want to say something, to shout out and be different, how often do we agree to not offend, not cause a scene, to avoid the awkwardness, to quell the fear?
Being the true you is the hardest thing, yet it is the biggest joy, the greatest peace, the most fulfilling thing we can do as a human being, to always just be ourselves.
It starts from the moment we are born to the day we die. Parents, teachers, the media, society and so on, condition our minds to a certain judgement, agenda, viewpoint etc.
What if we didn’t condition the mind, for example, English people are conditioned, even still in the 21st Century, not to like French people because of historic wars in the middle ages!!! People who live in Bolivia are conditioned to think very differently to people in America.
We can make judgements of people who we have never met based on the conditioning of our mind. Insane, when you look at that in a conscious state.
People are born the same all over the world, and if we taught ourselves to stop this conditioning process we could change the human race within a few generations.
Strange how we do not teach consciousness, or I don’t remember love or empathy lessons at school, where do we teach patience, compassion, and acceptance?
The real person that we all are beyond the conditioning is not part of the insanity that our mind and the collective mind has created. It’s like a double life.
