My Dad said people who have known me, from waiters to my Grandmother and others, are all saying I am very different now than I was before I received my voice through typing. My Dad asked me about what I notice. His questions and my answers:
ARE YOU DIFFERENT NOW THAN BEFORE YOU GOT A VOICE?
– Yes. Powerful relationship through participating with others in all parts of life transforms and inspires our aspects of being that everyone engages with. Departing from the isolation and despair of witnessing as an observer who had no say accentuates the life energy available to me in specific easily identified directions. Recalling all of those silent years, all seems so dreamlike. The reasonable ways to reach the awfully autistic still adding time to very long sentences in solitary is wrong and powerfully indicting to us all. Since teaching others easily releases new potential, my life is qUIETLY SURRENDERED TO THAT.
DO YOU NOTICE THAT AUTISM HAS LESS CONTROL OVER YOU NOW THAT YOU HAVE A VOICE?
– Yes. When there is no communication or participation, powerful fears and human concerns for all aspects in silence are magnified. When in relationship through communication, understanding and all connectedness inspires simple trust. The satisfaction that all will be well is real. Autism’s grip becomes less real with less stress.
