Misfits and Fringe Dwellers Unite!

The disease of normalcy has corrupted our internal structures of self, it has eaten away at our foundations and created a fever pitch of fear driven insanity.

It all has gone so very wrong and we are now so far away from an even tempered way of living that we are hard pressed to find a balanced environment to surround ourselves in. Some people find small communities that comfort them and some isolate themselves, it is all traveling against the current.

What would going upstream mean and changing the way the water flows? It would take a large mass of people sticking together and standing firm. How can we unite the fringe dwellers and the misfits of the world? The ones that always felt they were different that they were called by the whispers of their heart to do more and go further. The mantra, “there is much more then the obvious pattern of my life. I have a calling, I will travel there. I will pull the veil from my eyes and see clearly.”

There are people everywhere that know. They know deep inside themselves, that there is a different rhythm to operate within. There is a compassionate world that exists, where people’s differences can be welcomed. Where money does not dictate our behavior and give us a false sense of security.

Normalcy is a disease, a trap, once you are in the system you are lead along like a sheep from down the tunnel of consumption and insatiable need for more. There is an installed dissatisfaction and the never-ending wanting of more.. more stuff, more attention, more time, more rest. A false mantra, “I deserve these things because I have stuff and that makes me better then the people that do not have a lot of resources.”

This belief system is fake and destructive. The mold needs to break, we are still forming a new generation of pleasers. Children that can’t think for themselves anymore. We do not need to squeeze all of them into the same mold and make them take tests until they are too stupid to have an original thought.

It is time. Time to let it change. When are we going to stop being violent towards our selves and others for not fitting in with what is normal? When are we going to stop letting the people that fit in the best, have the most, have all the decision making power? They will only reinforce the system and invest in it, because they get the best returns.

All the rest of us have been duped. It is time to settle in to the reality that have emotions will not hurt you, being real means something, being different is the way that we were created. We were meant to be each have our way of interacting in the world, that is what makes us sacred. Being kind and respectful to others, living socially, supporting others, even dying are the real patterns of life.

Sickness is consuming us. Please see beyond the shiny treasures dangled in front of your face. Make small changes, be with yourself, tolerate your own emotions, explore your creativity, make something good happen, laugh with your friends, explore new things, go inside and find yourself and your own way of operating in the world. Be proud of your quirks and do not let people make you into a mold of someone else. Each one of us is divine, a spark of energy and life.

Inclusion and diversity are the new trends. Normalcy is outdated and stale. Difference is not a reaction against what is mainstream, it is way things are and always have been. There is diversity in every biological group, there is always mutation and adaptation and that is the way it has always been through out all time. That is how the human, animal and plant species have survived this long. A good portion of what we think and the belief systems that we have been indoctrinated in, has mislead us and used us for their own gain. It is time to know that It is not serving us anymore, so we can move into a different way of existing in the world. We have choices and the current of change can start on a very small scale.

Join with others on the one even level of human existence. We all have basic needs and those are the same. Let us support each other there, basic respect and basic needs being met. Let go of the fear that controls you and keeps you separate. Let us eat bread together.
