Although it is not my favorite, rejection can be a way into a higher place.
Without the resources and distractions of people and society, it is possible to find a place of comfort that is immune to cruelty.
It turns out that this is an Infinite Place.
And, once you define it for yourself, you can return there at any time.
Oh, and every once in a while, you will find someone else there, too, although this Place has many other resources of a different kind of life available.
The temptations of being in the herd - the protection, the leadership, the safety of conformity, the acceptance - are pretty small once you find this Infinite Place.
After all, it was because of your individuality that you got yourself thrown out in the first place.
You were already uncomfortable about aspects of society.
You were not trustful; you had been betrayed.
You were not willing to bury yourself in society’s dissatisfying employment.
Your relationships just did not work out.
Because you have already had a taste of your own individuality, you have actually laid the groundwork for the transitional step of rejection.
The next step of disorientation and searching takes you toward the Infinite Place.
You will not give up.
You are too uncomfortable where you are.
You will keep taking the next step until you find it, this other, infinite, place.
Your one step takes you off the traditional path, and it will give you more than a traditional reward.
You are definitely on your way.
