Every man is born carrying a strange cargo and should never be ashamed nor fearful of bestowing his gifts upon the world, but some don’t give them.
Stop hiding from what you are. You can't escape the fact that you belong to a strange kind of people. Be relentless, be fearless. Don’t go through this life afraid of what you are and will be. Don’t shrink before the shadows of what you believe are burdens placing themselves upon you. You went through Hell for a reason. Bend your knees and get beneath the weight and carry it. God gives every man and woman different gifts and we must understand how to confer them upon the world. We are all useful, and we must learn how to share our sacred insights. Don’t hide, don’t crumble. You are the rescue ship that brings gifts of respite to those hungering for more than just words.
Action: Fear of being different stifles growth. Many people downplay their differences from the mainstream because of the fear of being ridiculed, or by fear of competition; there are many reasons that people don’t want to stand out. It’s good to have talent, it’s better to have talent and the right kind of mindset. Paint, write music, create ceramics, do leatherworking woodworking or bladesmithing, or make glass crafts. Make gifts for people that you love and respect. Be a producer rather than a consumer. Watch Lust for Life (1956) starring Kirk Douglas. #warrior#iconoclast#rulebreaker 📸 Apocalypse Now. STAY WIERD.
