What about a “mental” disability? Why are people so quick to label someone as disabled merely because they lack the same abilities or because they can’t function optimally in the same environment? Are we doing them any justice by making it mandatory that they be labeled so that they can get the “help” that they need?
Isn’t it interesting that people with Downs Syndrome are pitied for their slow ways and their lack of understanding of this world? And yet have you ever met anyone as loving and caring as someone with Down’s? Do you feel judged in their presence or accepted? What has more value; the way a person cares for the world or how smart they are? It makes me wonder who the really stupid people are.
Finally, as far as abilities go, have you recognized your abilities?
~Have you seen yourself as disabled in your life?
~Have you seen the brilliance you have and are and BE?
~Do you focus on what is wrong with you or do you see all that is right with you and that in the midst of any “wrongness” there is so much rightness that you don’t even notice that anything else is amiss?
~What if what you think is wrong with you is really what is strong about you?
~As a last thought to ponder;
~What if there is nothing wrong with you at all and you can be in allowance of all that you are and all that you BE in this moment?
~Would you be able to be more present?
~Would you be able to enjoy life more?
~Would it be worth it?
What would it take to be in allowance of everyone's abilities?
What would it take for you to acknowledge your amazing abilities?
