I watched yesterday a video on Youtube with a guy who was doing massage ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poBXwndYQrM&feature=related ). His technique is absolutely unique - it is like a dance. I am masseur myself and have done many courses and trainings and I have never seen anything like this before. It was amazing to see it. At the same time I got really amazed when I saw the comments under the video. A lot of them they were abusive and disrespectful. WTF... this guy is really creative and unique in his expression which should be awed and instead people criticize him.
For sure there are many different reasons for it and one of them is that he is going beyond the rules of what is commonly accepted as normal and people are not used to it. We have been brainwashed into following the crowd blindly and every time somebody "breaks" the rules of the majority then he is being ostracized and judged - he is being pulled immediately back to the crowd.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I should follow the rules and norms of the crowd.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to judge and ostracize those who express themselves freely beyond the rules and norms of the crowd ( majority ).
I forgive myself that I have not allowed myself to express myself freely because of the fear of being judged and ostracized by the crowd.
