There are those whom feel they do not belong and that life rejects them at every turn. This is partially a misperception. The truth is, life has not rejected them. It is the group that has. By group could be meant many things: Your family, your church, your workplace, and so on. And the likely reason the group has rejected you is because groups are only interested in those eager and wanting to be members. Groups want members that think and act like them, nothing more. If you aren’t ready to fall in line and follow the precepts of the group, then you will fail to be a member and will inevitably be rejected. If this is your place, don’t be the fool that starts yet another group. Instead, take pleasure in being a member of creation instead. Only then will you find yourself included in everything.
The more you persist on enduring and living through your tests and trials rather than overcoming them, the more they will persist in your life and bring suffering to you and those around you. And don’t be fooled into thinking that the numbness you’ve developed over that time is any sign of strength. Quite the opposite, in fact! It is your demise. So long as individual humans fail to learn this lesson, so too will continue to be the fate of humanity. One cycle of pain and suffering after another. We will either solve the puzzle or lose our humanity by avoiding to do so. Such is how life tends to teach us with its fractal order of things.
Just as nature shows itself to be predisposed to an infinite variety of variations, the human frame can express an equal if not greater amount of spiritual, cultural and intellectual variation. In fact, were it not for cultural norms that have emerged through the pressures of time, humans would continue to diverge even further from each other, each with their own individual Gods, garments and gifts. Maybe even each with their own language. Because at the root of nature is division and multiplicity and humans are a phenomenal microcosmic expression of the universe.
Eliminate culture and social norms and behold how man will be bent in any direction his or her whims can exert on her soul, or worse yet by the whims of another. Social norms, therefore, are put in place to serve and preserve the integrity of the group, because absent these, humans would be predisposed to adopting divergent behaviors.
Therefore it is plain that chaos is the inevitable result of abject individualism while stifling and suffocating order on the opposite extreme is the result of abject totalitarianism. It is conclusive then that the most we can strive for is a system of ordered chaos that permits the freedom for each to pursue the dictates of their own conscience without the threat of being forcibly stifled by a neighbor wishing to impose their preference on others.
Nobody hates a person for their race unless they perceive the person identifies themselves first as a member of their race. When any individual, identifies themselves as being human, first, and as a member of a race or religion- last; And they also think the same of others, they will see little to no resistance or objection in their path solely due to the amount of melanin in their skin.
Rulers often express the ideas that would benefit the people through the mouth of a clown to make the people agree with the rulers instead.
What you busy yourself building is what you have decided to count on. Build a relationship and you will be able to count on your partner. Build a family and you will be able to count on them for a lifetime. Build a career and that will be your vessel for as long as it lasts. What you busy yourself building when you have your strengths is what will sustain you when you have none left. Build wisely.
We often build outside because we want to avoid building within. Consequently much of human achievement and expansion has been fueled by our traumas and the avoidance of personal growth needed to overcome them.
It may seem to be the case that adversity renders great and powerful individuals, but the truth of the matter is that only these individuals are capable of emerging triumphant from such adversity. So it is largely despite it and not because of it. Therefore know that if you subject adversity on others in order to create greatness, what you are actually doing is creating a barrier, through which only the very strong will emerge and the vast majority that you have inflicted this on, will be selected out.
We are as oblivious of the sentience of our soul as a video game character is of the user that plays it. You are the avatar and as long as negative patterns continue to re-emerge in your life, you will continue to fight them until you learn what you’re supposed to in order to pass to the next level.
Why does this keep happening to me?
Answer: Your soul is the driver and you its avatar. If you don’t pass the test, it will keep repeating itself in your life until you do.
