Rules are made, and are there to be broken, to be replaced with new rules. There will ever be an exception to every rule, if entertained and engaged with will be that pivotal point upon which change occurs and momentarily cures us of the deafness and the blindness that we have accepted and endured throughout the illusions of our lives up until that moment. That point from which new dreams are made manifest, new voices are heard, civilisations are given birth and strident leaps forward in understanding are achieved. Within that tiny margin of exception is the ideal seed that has the power to change everything with the intake of a breath, and the exhalation of intent.
I am an exception, you are an exception. We are all exceptional.
No outcome is either good or bad, it’s just an outcome. A disagreement with an accepted rule is merely a different outlook and one that is deeply personal and subjective to the individual. In that moment of disagreement, of exception, we each have the ability to re-write our own personal stories, to change our outlooks to one that espouses creativity and value, to make our own rules about how we would like to live our lives. In taking responsibility for who we are and for our personal validity, we give ourselves freedom in the most spectacular of ways, and nothing in life will ever be the same again. We each have so much power and vitality within us, the stuff of the universe, of existence that makes us tick, that gives us purpose to wake with every new day and to discover and unveil the best possible experience from moment to moment. We all have memories of being the wide-eyed child that loved to explore and experiment, and live for the moment before we became ‘educated’, and bound by conditions of our own choosing.
No one can tell you how to live your life, as no one can truly know what you experience within your personal reality, so trust in who you are, trust what you know deep within you. Listen to yourself and love who you are so that you are not fearful of yourself or the world you create. Your energy and your power is yours, and yours alone. Use it well and do good things with it. Do what you love, what makes you passionate and your world will respond accordingly. You create your own reality as literally as you think and breathe, and if you don’t believe me, or rather yourselves, then trust in your own integrity, and perhaps pay a little more attention next time you put a thought out there. Watch how the ‘coincidences’ flutter through your window in time like butterflies passing through a landscape. Listen to the voice within you, the voice of your intuition that knows better, and allow yourself to revel in the beauty and the utter creativity of the moment.
And if you really must protest and deny all responsibility for yourselves and what you obviously create, then may the gods help you, whichever gods you may aspire to, for you only have yourselves to blame.
Much love and mischief
