We live in a world where we are being made to believe that conformity gives us safety and a good position in society.  It is true that the media have picked up on the actual movement to authenticity, and hence individuality.  Yet, often this depiction stays at the surface and only parrots what others have said while at the same time twisting those statements in order to increase sales of a presented product.

That conformity keeps you safe and provides a good position in society is an experience that has not met my truth.  In fact, it has made me ill.

How loving is a society that does not allow people to be who they are?  A society that demands people to do certain things in order to be a valuable part of the group, even if that means that these people have to do things that make them ill?  A society that outcasts people and lets them fall through the cracks if they do not live up to the promoted appearance?

Many people have asked the same questions and have realized, by now, that conformity is not everything.  They have realized how important it is to speak with their own, authentic voice and that this brings so much health and healing.

Not only do we stop to imprison ourselves, we simultaneously stop to imprison others as it is much easier to allow somebody to be their own individual when allowing it to oneself, first.

Oneness in diversity – yes, this phrase may be over-used but it is a very interesting idea.  It allows people to come as they are and acknowledges that this makes them a valuable member of society.  Nothing to prove, nothing to sell, only to be.”

It might be that what we have to say has been said, before.  But it has been said with a different voice and therefore it probably provided different insights to different people.

In a choir people sing the same song together.  Yet, it would not be much of a choir if they would sing exactly the same melody with exactly the same voice at exactly the same time.

The beauty which also provides different perspectives and therefore different insights comes from the diversity of the voices harmonically brought together to sing this song.”

-Stefanie Neumann

Let us be the choir and the society we live in the song we sing together.  Imagine how much more peaceful everything would be!

Are you ready to shine a bright light of awareness on the path of beingness, today?

Much love,
