You are not average
neither am I, nor is anyone!
Here is something from a collection that I will release next year titled “Lobsters of Truth”
This is a follow up on last Sunday’s post about challenging ourselves without harm.
Being average is being no one. Average is a mushy flaky non-sensical number that is pushed into our education, our healthcare, and our society. It constricts the human spirit and corners us into slaving away to be something that is made for no one. You are part of the collective but you are also your own self will you drown in the world’s perception? or Will you pave a right of passage? Will you continue living in a paradigm of uni dimension thinking under the illusion of choice that sells you freedom in carton boxes? Leave comfort leave fragility Leave survival enter a mindset of being who you came here to become. You can do it. You have genes that have survived lions and famine and diseases for millions of years. You have a brain that can compute millions of equations simultaneously You have a body that can run from a stampede and hunt a gazelle. You have thumbs that create fire from rocks. And tools that carve stones and make weapons out of nature. You have a heart that is wide enough to carry the whole world in it, and when you start opening that heart to yourself, that is when you will come out and fucking shine.
