Misfits Hiding in Plain Sight. How can Rose Rosetree’s new memoir, Bigger than All the Night Sky bring you a welcome sense of belonging?
Fortunately, that misfit aspect may not quite show to others. Big seekers of MORE can blend in. Sorta.
Yet inwardly we have always felt different.
Misfits Hiding How We Feel Homesick for Heaven
“I knew I was not from this planet and that this is a very tough planet.”
A friend of mine told me that. I didn’t relate… exactly. Yet I could sympathize. That’s Joe’s language for feeling alien. Personally, I use different language:
Secretly. Homesick. For heaven.
That means, you don’t quite adjust to being human. Instead, you miss being an angel. Even if you haven’t exactly been able to put that into words.
And deep down you might even wish you could “Go home.” Back to where your soul lived before starting this lifetime.
Many seekers of God feel that way. Alienated. In your early years, living almost as if playing a part. Playing a role you don’t quite believe in.
Yet you weren’t quite weird enough… to seem weirder than most people.
So you fit in. While still having a secret ache in your heart.
Misfits Hiding? I Wrote This for You
Because I’ve read a lot of memoirs. Since this kind of book has always appealed to me. Seeking to understand how other people have managed to survive at this “very tough planet.” Which I call “Earth School.”
- So many of us have felt driven — yes driven — to personal growth.
- Until we have our first spiritual awakening, nothing seems to make sense.
- And even then, we struggle.
Bigger than All the Night Sky is a memoir of spiritual awakening. And not, like so many memoirs, about this very different plot line:
Joe is super-successful. Maybe rich. Or famous. Or both. But then he has a moment of spiritual awakening. As a result he changes his life.
By contrast, Bigger than All the Night Sky tells the story of someone who was a misfit hiding in plain sight. Doing well enough. Although definitely not doing great. And always seeking answers to help life make sense.
Not just a sense of purpose. But a sense of belonging.
Did you know? Some research has shown that misfits and outsiders can work more creatively than others?
