I Am Different

Uncategorized Jun 03, 2020

I am different.
.
I feel it from a multidimensional perspective.
.
It is more than a neurotype, it is a way of 'being' in this world.
.
Yet, the words 'being' and 'world' are not enough.
.
There is no language to express my "autism".
.
Because it's more than autism.
.
Words, verbal language is not my first language.
.
It is not my native tongue.
.
Energy is. Presence is. Feeling is.
.
I don't feel with just my emotions.
.
I feel with my entire being, what is seen of me, and what is unseen.
.
I experience BEING with my entire physical, ethereal, spiritual, emotional, mental, energetic, expansive existence.
.
Whatever that is; whatever I am.
.
I am not confined to my flesh.
.
I am expansive; I am neither here, nor there.
.
And you, you are not so different.
.
You only experience yourself and your surroundings differently.
.
Because I am tuned in to so much more,
.
There is more for me to fear.
.
Because I 'feel' with more than just my heart,
.
There is more pain.
.
And there is more joy.
.
My pain, and my joy,
.
Cannot be contained within my physical body.
.
It doesn't only exist there.
.
Because I am expansive,
.
Because my 'being' flows and is connected with all that surrounds me,
.
My sensing, my feeling, my experiencing,
.
Reaches out, beyond my body,
.
To touch the cells of what is unseen and unknown
.
And unfelt,
.
By others.
.
My sounds,
.
My movement,
.
My connection to my environment,
.
Is sacred.
.
It is holy.
.
It is more than who I am,
.
It is an expression of my being
.
That merely touches on
.
My difference.
.
And here we are
.
With an opportunity
.
A blessing
.
To connect
.
To see each other
.
To join the dots
.
To be still
.
To meet with our being
.
And you only see disorder.
.
My heart breaks for you,
.
And what you are missing.
.
.
.
.
.
