Today-I spoke with the manager of my Facebook page and it was expressed to me that I get better feedback on issues that are more personal.
I didn’t overstand the remark- for everything that I place in the public domain- is personal. I place my thoughts on the table- step back from them- and let the world examen my essence- for the truth - the real- fears no investigation.
What was truly being expressed was an opinion that I should be more emotional- speak to people's sensitivities- but in reality - that’s what your pastor’s are for- that’s what your life coaches are for- but my assignment is to reach those that are deemed- by this social construct- as unreachable.
I’m neither swayed- nor bound- by public opinion- for public opinion if fickle- feckless- and ever evolving as thought is expanded or decreased- as is evidenced in the scenario involving Jesus. As he came into the town- the popular opinion was praise- the people were shouting - “Hosanna!”- but by Friday - they were screaming- “crucify him!”.
This being the reality- one subjects one self to discontentment- when one is more concerned about what the public thinks- wants - then what one thinks and wants for self.
The popular opinion- concerning the 2016 election- was that Hillary Clinton would win- and the popular vote- was in her favor- but Donald Trump is the president- so popular opinion proved to be ineffective- of no import.
I don’t write to appease emotional voyeurs- cyber activist- or to receive likes or emogis on Facebook. I write to spark thought- electrical currents in the mind of those who have subjected their thought process- or relinquished their constitution- to the herd mentality - that is popular opinion.
I’m not a politician- a serf- or a slave to trends - marketed to the masses in the form of progressive thought- nor do I lather at the idea of appealing to the rigors of social norms- for banality- is not a part of my personality construct.
Though I know that I must recalibrate- to compensate for the 21 years that I’ve been in exile- overstand that my recalibration- will cause the world to adjust.
You may describe that as arrogance- but it is self determination- self actualization- an investment in my own self worth- wherein I can demonstrate- by example- the vast possibilities that lie in wait for one who rises above popular opinion- invests in a cause that is bigger than him/herself- and charts his/her own course to make thought a reality.
In 52 days- you’ll witness my demonstration!
