There are two kinds of people on earth. Those that are at their best in the storm. And those that can barely handle a little rain. Enduring the unbearable isn’t for everyone. You must know that being the sort of person that is complete, whole, and realized on your own makes you kind of scary to other humans. Your super skills may make you feel like a freak. And ya kind of are.
But I say; You are beautiful. Strange. Singular. Gorgeous. Beautiful.
No matter the color of your wings, when you fly, I hope you have at least one person in your life that sees you. Sees you for the lovely, talented, crazy-wild-rare-creature that you are. Someone that not only sees what you do. But understands completely why you do it. It must be wonderful to have a houseful of fans. Friends, family, significant others, a band of folks that are there for you being supportive and spurring you on. If you are an average sort you most likely have had a posse your entire life.
When you are exceptional? Being misunderstood comes with the territory.
Feeling alone even when there are people all around you is part of the gig.
You will be misunderstood.
At times you will feel as though there is a terrific party going on that you are not invited to. You can hear the laughter and the music but none of it is for you. The party is for others to enjoy while you carry on being a stranger in a strange land. A land that has your name on it.
I know what it is like to be different and unseen. It feels awful and it leads to psychic darkness.
I also know what it is like to truly be seen. It doesn’t happen often but when it does I tend to fall deeply in love with my angel with the x-ray vision. There is nothing quite like being understood is there? It’s better than love. Better than money. Better than ice cream.
But this has never once happened for me until I gathered enough of my own light to guide myself up out of the blues and into some good news.
Tennessee Williams used to say; ” If I got rid of my demons, I’d lose my angels. ”
Mr Williams drank too much.
When you get rid of your demons of self-doubt and despair your life will go where angels fear to tread but show up anyway.
Sending Love, Light and Oceans of Bliss.
