How Conformity Cripples Creativity

It's not a bad thing to be different.

Everything in this world is all stuck in this wheel of living and dying. Everything is a cycle, a pattern. But what if I told that there is a way to break this wheel that we are supposed to be part of? What if I told you that there is more to life than the box that we are confined to since that moment we were born?

Conformity. This stops us from asking questions, from learning no more than the text books we were forced to read in school, from living our lives away from the system.

This system of conformity is called cultural programming. Cultural programming ranges from controlling the way people speak, the way we act, the religions we believe, and even the food we eat. The leaders of our society thrive on the conformity of people, and I believe that we should break from it. The morality of how we live is just a construct of the human mind because there is absolutely no singular way to live life.

Yes, people might tell you that if you don't study well, you'll fail in school. And if you fail in school, you will essentially just fail in life. People will tell you that you can't be a musician or a painter or a ballerina for a living because success in those fields are so rare; it's not for everyone. That logic or mentality alone cripples the artists from mastering their craft. This kills human ingenuity and creativity.

We have become robots of the system and that's what they want. So if you feel boxed in, break free because we need more conscious indigo children in the society. We need to understand that life is not supposed to be a one way streak. Instead, it is a maze containing a myriad of ways to get to the other side. So please, never let cultural programming stop you from living your life the way you want to, never stop asking questions, and never let conformity cripple your creativity.
