I saw something beautiful the other day. I was in a busy toyshop with my kids, and my daughter was trying to put a box back up on a high shelf. She was too short to push it all the way up, and it looked like it was going to fall down on top of her. I was too far away to help, and also, I wasn't worried about it falling, if it did. I was just watching to see what would happen. Another mom walking by,without fanfare, just gave the box a little shove so that it was solidly on the shelf, and kept on walking without acknowledgement. And my daughter just moved on to the next toy to look at, not really knowing *how* she had been helped. she wasn't "grateful" or anything--it was like 'I wanted to put the box on the shelf, and there it is on the shelf, and everything always works out for me." I started to cry with the beauty of it! I thanked that other mom in my heart. It reminded me of this DVD that said, there will alwYs be people there to help your children if they are in alignment.

I LOVE that! That your daughter simply wanted the box on the shelf and the universe delivered!! THAT'S alignment!!

This is a wonderful thread. I don't know why I resonate so deeply with Abraham's explanations of autism but I suspect, knowing what I know now, that had it been common when I was in school that I would have certainly been "labeled". It occurs to me how different school was then. I did not have to deal with such things because there were no formal descriptions or labels and so I was quite invisible! Which, I LOVED!! I knew the material and barring one brief exposure and narrow escape from being pushed into "gifted" status was able to fly under the radar and do as I pleased which included NOT showing my level of understanding and thereby drawing attention to myself. I wonder...if many of these children had come forth then, would they have been invisible and left to their own devices, free to explore their own interests and consequently been labeled "gifted" or "genius"?

I am beginning to think that the label of "autism" is a great blessing for many as there are few things more confining than to be labeled "gifted" as a child. It's as if the whole world is pulling at you, in expectation of you solving the world's problems and fighting over which aspect of the world is most important and which troublesome world problem gets domain over you. I remember thinking, as a child, how crazy it was that people were not only telling me WHAT to look at, but also what to THINK about what I was looking at. I had a very narrow escape when I manifested my mother awesomely taking my side on the matter and telling them, in no uncertain terms, to get out of my face. I was SO happy and everyone instantly forgot all about me and I was truly FREE!! And THAT is a TOTALLY different story than I would have told just a few months ago. A few months ago it would have been all about the freaking out over the idea that my mother seemed on the path to letting someone else have domain over me and then manifesting physical symptoms that were diagnosed as a nervous breakdown that woke up my mother. THAT is so COOL! The story has taken on an entirely different meaning! Wow!

And now that I see it more clearly, there doesn't seem to be any difference between the labels of "autism" and "genius" when it comes to others - they both seem to attract the attention of those who seek to re-create non-conformists to suit themselves. CLEARLY autism is a higher form of genius!! To achieve dominion over a genius child you must first convince them that they are not in charge and you can't DO that with an autistic child!! They failed to convince me!!! How perfect is THAT?!?! Talk about GENIUS!!! That's UBER genius!!! I AM autistic!! I bet MANY of us older ABE-loving non-conformists are!! We just caught them off-guard!! We are "pre-label" AUTISTICS!! We are UBER geniuses!!!

::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo


I'm going to have to get that DVD!!!

Diggit! I love your energy!!!
How wonderful!  I know just what you mean.  I was thinking recently about the musical 'Wicked' where you see that the label 'wicked' or 'evil' could actually become a free pass to bow out of societal expectation!

:beautiful:

Maryna, I have put in a call to someone who would know how to get in touch with that therapist, so I will follow up with you.

In the meantime, enjoy the cruise recordings. I just got them too.  I remember from the 2008 cruise, a parent got up and asked a wonderful question about autism, and what Abe said was something like this,

re: the playground
"We would not put the child in circumstances where he is being compared to all the other monkeys climbing on the monkey bars, and instead celebrate what the child IS able to do."

Or something like that.  I use this for my children.  They are about to start kindergarten, and they each have their strengths, so I'm working on just playing to their strengths, and ignoring their 'weaknesses.'  (They don't have any! It's KINDERGARTEN!)

It is so wonderful that this thread was resurrected--I'm glad it was helpful for at least two more people!

With much love

I'm reading this over and over and riding a happy wave and spinning into my vortex.

Thank you Diggit!

That's interesting and makes perfect sense! I was called "odd", as a small child, then "weird" and then "eccentric" all of which sort of felt like "permission" to be who I am. It's a splendid life! Even the short time of concern about possibly being considered "too odd" to raise a child. That used to feel like such a HUGE thing and now I see that it was just a very few, very short periods of time. Not even big enough to manifest what I feared!!

Hmmm...cleaning up one big thing (my "concern" about others) has apparently cleaned up a bunch of other things I hadn't thought about in a while...COOL!!

Uh oh...look out! I'm getting that FEEEEELing again... plug your ears 'cause I think I'm gonna...yep...ok...here it comes -

It also occurs to me that I seldom spoke, as a child, and look at me NOW!! You can't shut me UP!!!

::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL


edit: And another memory surfaces - "Brilliant but unteachable" - What the hell does that even MEAN?!?!? If someone is brilliant then WHAT are you trying to "teach" them?!?!? How to be less brilliant?!?!? "Brilliant but unteachable"? - it doesn't even make sense.

Added: There's an online Autism Spectrum quotient test! I scored 35 out of 50 which it says represents "high-functioning autism"!!

"Normal" is around 15-17.

WOW!! I am doing EXACTLY what I INTENDED to do when I came into this physical body!!

::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo


More adding: Going back over the list of questions and answers it is actually a perfect mixture of things I'm cleaning up and "normal" traits that I'm glad I don't have. I would have scored much higher 6 months ago.

Diggit!!!! I love your energy here! I feel like you are a gift from the universe, showing us what it's like when someone who is 'autistic' is fully accepting of themselves!  You show us that it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks!

THANK YOU.

Hi guys!
there is a lovely interaction on this thread on 'unwanted pregnancies'

http://theabeforum.com/forum2/19037.html

Where zenjenn talks a little bit about the co-creation with her eldest son. Now that we've gotten the (former) child's perspective, THANK YOU DIGGIT!, zenjenn gives us a taste of the mom's perspective, a mom who has come into alignment with the co-creation with her child.

It's beautiful!!!
