Cultural views or societal expectations the web of attraction is the fairytale stories. From early childhood on we are read stories of kings and queens and happily ever after. This imaginary foundation builds a false sense of security. The creation of a better then now vision, that an end will come to the hell and a glorious new day will await. It is the ever so popular “Cinderella” , the moral to the story “good things happen to good people”. There are many childhood stories that I remember and yes I was aware that they were fiction at it’s best. Yet I hungered for a more normal atmosphere. I was asked what is normal?
Defined in the dictionary NORMAL
1.conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural.
2.serving to establish a standard.
I perceived normal as a plateau where balance was met, where there is a understanding and the proposed “ unconditional love”. Acceptance is unequivocal, as there is no doubt that there is a profound experience in being accepted in the normal pool of society.
Flexible like a rag doll that has weathered many storms. I felt as if my mind, my heart and my soul were grasping in various directions to find the place of contentment. The weight of circumstances weighing heavily upon each.
As the definition states normal as being natural. The child in me strolls the hills surrounding the hollow sensing all of the beauty that nature in its most natural form provides. Yet little signs of mans destruction lay in the path. For it has been said that " mans worst, enemy is man."
The cool spring morning sent a chill through out, but not as deep as the chill of life that shakes the spirit. Part of me rooted and growing flourishing in a unstable situation and another part of me dying as I battle the inner demons of self.
then and only then can your soul be free.
