“If other people do not understand our behavior—so what? Their request that we must only do what they understand is an attempt to dictate to us. If this is being “asocial” or “irrational” in their eyes, so be it. Mostly they resent our freedom and our courage to be ourselves. We owe nobody an explanation or an accounting, as long as our acts do not hurt or infringe on them. How many lives have been ruined by this need to “explain,” which usually implies that the explanation be “understood,” i.e. approved. Let your deeds be judged, and from your deeds, your real intentions …”

This wasn’t an easy journey.
I’ve always fought to find myself for years making and losing ground because I didn’t know where to start or what needed to be done. But facing some serious challenges, I realized that I needed to find myself and walk my own path and not follow others.
So, from that time until even now with each discovery of self I knew I couldn’t go back. I am so much more than what I saw in the eyes of some and wondered what others saw in me that they appreciated and respected me. I still have to fight to maintain who I am. There will always be pressure to conform to an undefined norm and blind follow. Therefore, I will press forward to be free and to stay free. Free to be me because I now know being me is important for me to be.
I never thought for a moment that “the journey” has been easy, oh no.
It is like going through inferno, with no one to guide you.
Where to start and what is needed to be done?
For sure, that is the most essential question… – what a strange coincidence as punctually, I asked myself earlier today the same thing.
So I do understand and sympathize with you when saying that you realized that you needed to find yourself and walk your own path and not follow others.
This applies to me too: Either I listen to others and totally wither, or walk my own path in order to heal and live. No real choice other than “die or live”.
The journey invariably goes on.
The pressure to conform to the undefined norm and blind follow, lurks in each moment. With every thought or emotion.
GREAT AWARENESS IS REQUIRED MOMENT BY MOMENT.
Unfortunately we live in a society which irretrievably invalidates Life celebrating Death – that´s why it is so hard to “maintain” who one really is.
Though at some point along the path, we have to quit this fight too… -ultimately realizing that Who We Really Are cannot be threatened, that as long as we are anchored in True Being, we cannot be other than Alive. Protected! Free!
Utterly speaking, Nothing can menace us, as there is no menace to speak about,
other than Illusion.
Fully acquiring this insight, the whole idea of fight crumbles,
AS THE REAL NEEDS NOT TO BE DEFENDED. Only the False does.
The one who capitulates, eventually wins it all.

I wrote this post some time ago. I will reblog it, as it these words are highly vital today.
Here it is:
There are some very valuable topics I´ve been intending to write on. Joy,
is one among them – but I kind of didn´t find the right “touch”.
So instead of waiting for the adequate formulation, which can be a terrible waste of time. So I thought I´d better write certain posts, even if they feel like loose drafts. Sometimes, it seems that even the syntax is superfluous as long as the message is vivid and true. After all, it is not the form, but the content which needs to come out.
In fact I prefer a happy and clever illiterate than an insipid, infelicitous scholar.

Joy is center.
Joy is always Now.
Joy is timeless.
