“Sometimes it’s the very people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.”  — Alan Turing

It’s a line from the movie “The Imitation Game” I love this movie. I’ve seen it for the first time when it just came out in the cinema. I remember crying so intensely afterward. Everyone had already left the cinema. Like I was the only one who was touched by it so much. Arjen was with me and understood why I had gotten so emotional.

At the end (which you can see in the movie scene above) she says something about how grateful she is for Alan not to be normal. Since it was because of it that he had been able to solve Enigma and helped to end the war. 

Why are we all trying so hard to be normal? What is normal? Does normal feel good? That is what I want to know. If it doesn’t, then I will make different choices and change what is normal to me.

I am free to do that. And so is everyone else. We just don’t seem to believe that it is possible to only make choices that feel really good to us. But what if that belief is no longer normal? What if that belief is actually really strange? For it is a belief that does not feel good to me. Does it feel good to you?

I find it strange to make choices only based on logic or just out of habit without even thinking or feeling. What is normal? 

This time the end of the movie touched me again. I got a little teary-eyed but I did not have to cry like I had the first time. It’s because I feel so much more at peace with myself. I see myself as normal now. I just am what I am and that is just fine. If not perfect.

It took me a while to embrace all of me and to be able to embrace all of life that is being reflected back to me. They both go hand in hand. When you get in touch with your own divinity, you’re able to see and connect with the divinity in others. You’ll be able to see through all of the layers, without judging them, fearing them or even interacting with them (more on this in the audio in this article). You’ll be able to connect right to the core of someone. That is something I love ‘to do’.

It’s not my job to make you aware of all those layers in between. This will happen naturally when I connect with you at your core. I don’t even notice those layers. To me, they just aren’t there.

And when you have been seen like that “The Imitation Game” is over. You can still try to go on and pretend, but it will not work with me. Which could cause you to have all kinds of reactions, but that is fine with me.

I cannot go back to not seeing you and pretending to believe in something else other than your divinity. Just like I can’t go back to how I used to see myself.

The more you look, the more you see. And you cannot forget what you have seen. Only temporarily…

Here’s to our everlasting divinity!

With love,
