the new view of you (is this a good look?)
by Sophia Love, published on October 5, 2018
Forget the mirror. It is your actions right now that showcase your beauty. Your words. Your avatar. Your posts. Your shares. Your likes. Your dislikes. Your videos. Your emails. Your emojis. Your Instagram pix. Each reflect you far beyond your bathroom. We’re in a moment of authenticity, ready or not.
The old guard, with its secrets and hiding, has come undone. This new generation has laid out a perfect path for their unravelling. They’ve grown up on social media and cut their teeth on snapchat. They’ve shared and played and spoofed and uncovered everything. Nothing is left without access.
Those of us who’ve been here a bit longer will have to get past our shock and dismissal of their ways. This “new view of you” is here to stay.
Unseen and often ignored as frivolous, this tendency to share leads us ever closer to oneness. It’s all out there now. We’re all out there now.
Every facet of what it is to be human can be searched and found on YouTube.
Now to the point of this post.
These facets turn out to be beautiful, horrifying, generous, gluttonous, ugly, exquisite, compassionate and cruel; all of them us.
A broader view shows us that these years of online exposure have led to a feeling “naked in front of the crowd” 24/7. This brilliantly devised tactic (pat yourselves on the back now) compels us to look at ourselves squarely. There is no choice left but transparency. We are witnessing ourselves. We are witnessing oneness.
Now that we see, what will we do?
regardless of who it includes or why, gives us a chance to show our stuff. Our best stuff. Our light. Our compassion. Our humanity.
Watching, I felt like what used to be called a “peeping tom”. I “should” NOT be this close to her internal pain. Yet I am, and now, so are you.
Regardless of why, she displays deeply personal and uncomfortable emotion and what you feel when you see that, tells you more about yourself than any bathroom mirror.
Don’t misunderstand this message. This deep state orchestrated corruption and concealed control must stop. It’s being exposed so that it can be eradicated. It’s over. These will not be the last tears we’ll witness. When we do, it may help to remember “there but for the grace of god, go I”.
We’ve all done it all and been it all. We may stand now with the light, and next to the “good guys”, but other times and lives have found us elsewhere. Remember that.
We have a chance now to alter the course of a planet. We are in the eye of the storm. Everyone got us here. Without the dark we’d never have noticed how bright we shine. Oneness does not exclude anyone at all. It doesn’t work like that.
Just love. It is what you do best, and it is what you will be remembered for.
We are the ones.
We have anchored the light.
It is done.
With appreciation for all that you are,
