The Facts about Censoring Yourself
When you censor your truth based upon what you think others might think, it's really what you're thinking. Sure, deep down you may not have a problem with what you want to say, the shape of your body, or your creativity, but once you are around others, you make their possible thoughts about your expression dominate you. Two things I have to say to that--number one, it's pure fantasy, and--number two, it's none of your business! The thoughts that you project onto others' thoughts of you is your own fantasy. You can't possibly know for sure what others think of you. Sure you may see facial and bodily cues that could betray their inner state, but that leads me to the second point--it's none of your business what they're thinking about you! You live in your own body, moving your own hands, making your own yawns, dancing with your own feet. Who gives a fuck how the person next to you is dancing?!? Those aren't your feet, pay attention to your own! The spiritual process of growth in a human experience is not for the faint of heart. The goal is to live life completely on your own terms, with nothing to gain or lose from it. Life is not about coming out on top. Life is about sometimes being on top, sometimes being on the bottom, and not giving a damn about either one, only the love you have for yourself. What others think of you, positive or negative, is irrelevant. Sure, you may want to surround yourself with people who generally think positively of you, but you don't want to base your life around that. Connect with your source, feel good about yourself, then you'll see the Universe deliver human reflections of yourself that love you too, regardless of their individual, superficial thoughts. No one is judging you but you. No one is loving you but you, so take the reins of life, and live it freely, on your own terms, with nothing to gain or lose. Excelsior, G.A.B.E.
