Do you have an Inner-Cray-Cray?
That inner crazy, loopy, eccentric, wild, out-there person who just wants to unleash their madness, and their genius, onto this world?
I know I do!
And from what I’ve seen, many of us Sensitive Souls have a STRONG ‘Inner-Cray-Cray,’ an AWESOME ‘Inner Crazy...’ and this NEEDS to be the case!
Because we are the Artists, Musicians, Writers, Healers, Philosophers, Innovators & Revolutionaries...
The Different Ones, the Rule-Breakers, the Non-Conformists…
If we did not have an ‘Inner-Crazy’, then how could we possibly be open enough, ‘CRAZY’ enough, to think outside the square, to explore 'out-there' ideas, to create the novel, invent the unusual, delve into the unknown & play within uncharted territories...
You see, not only is our 'Inner-Crazy': Fun, Expressive, Entertaining, Raw, and Hilarious (!)...
But it is the very seed of our Madness, our Eccentricity and our GENIUS!
How many Creators, Thinkers, and Revolutionaries, those who have changed the course of history, were called ‘Crazy', ‘Mad' and ‘Eccentric' during their lifetime?
Those who broke the rules, broke the mould, thought and created far beyond their time…
And therefore, were often mis-understood, shunned or even persecuted by the masses, for being different!
Here’s some examples….
Galileo Galilei (Scientist, Mathematician, Astronomer)
Henry David Thoreau (Author, Poet, Philosopher)
Edgar Allan Poe (Writer)
Franz Kafka (Writer)
Vincent van Gogh (Post-Impressionist Painter)
Claude Monet (Impressionist Painter)
Johann Sebastian Bach (Composer)
Thomas Edison (Inventor)
Albert Einstein (Inventor)
Henry Ford (Inventor)
Michael Jackson (Singer, Songwriter, Dancer, Artist)
... just to name a few.
These people changed the WORLD! If they did not let their 'Inner-Crazy' take charge, take lead in their life, so their GENIUS could be expressed, how could they have influenced the World, and change the Course of History like they did?
So how about you dear Sensitive ones?
What does your Inner-Crazy want to say, express, and do in this World?
Maybe your 'Inner-Crazy’ simply wants to come out & play… Whether it be playing, joking, laughing, singing, dancing, jumping, crawling, screaming (in a healthy way!)!
Maybe you just want to feel this Wild, Crazy and Unleashed part of you! To feel Liberated! To feel Free...
Or you may have some ‘Wild’ and ‘Crazy' IDEAS, that just want to be let out of the bag, to be expressed into this World and to have an impact upon it...
A Little Story...
I unknowingly had a 'Cray-Cray' outlet back when I studied Fashion in my early 20’s. The College curriculum required us to stay within certain boundaries in terms of design, which always made me feel slightly constricted...
However, when it came to creating my designs randomly, just for my own pleasure, what I came up with was absolutely MAD, CRAZY & WILD!!
I’d have these manic periods where I’d envision designs, and then spend hours-on-end creating them. My excitement and passion would inspire so-much ENERGY that I’d often be working on my Creations for days on end...
Sometimes with no sleep!
And as per my childhood dancing & swinging experiences, I’d once again, get lost in the ZONE, where time did not EXIST, and I was at ONE with my CREATION and the CREATOR...
As so happens, the designs I created within curriculum boundaries, received little to no attention by observers. However in comparison, the creations I had made when no boundaries were present, when I was simply doing what I LOVED, received incredible amounts of attention and even... Awards!
The two Costumes as seen in the photo’s above, received Media attention, and featured in numerous mainstream Newspapers and TV Channels. I was also interviewed by a TV network, 2 magazines and BOTH costumes were Winners at the Melbourne Fringe Fashion Festival!
I was so taken by surprise by all of this! As there was no REASON, no PURPOSE for these Creations, other than to be EXPRESSED into this WORLD!
Looking back now, I can clearly see how these Creations were MAD, WILD, CRAZY and beyond their time in terms of design…
And luckily for me, rather than being ‘judged’ or ‘shunned’ for it, the public LOVED them!
And herein, lies the message…
An important message…
Yes, you may be judged, shunned, or ridiculed for being different, but luckily for most of us, who live in a modern society that is comparatively safe (besides perhaps a few harmless critics), there is no need to be afraid of persecution for stepping outside of the square...
And just by being you, the Crazy, Eccentric, Unleashed you...
Or by expressing your ‘Inner Crazy’ through play, art, dance, music, writing, inventing…
THIS! is more likely to be either LOVED by others or have a positive (maybe even significant!) IMPACT on this World!
By being & expressing your TRUE-SELF & letting your INNER-CRAZY shine unto this World...
Who knows what possibilities may open up for you & your life...
With much love,
