Fashion & Conformity

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Fashion
“A lot of things are based on fashion, even morality at times is based on fashion. Slavery was once not considered not to be immoral. You have to really go back to first principles, and think things out for yourself. Whether they're scientific principles, or moral principles, or business ideas or product ideas, you have to think things out for yourself. Come to your own judgments. Don't simply conform to conventional ways of thinking, conventional ways of dressing, conventional ways of acting.” ~ Lawrence Joseph Ellison
You don't have to be like anyone else, and you don't have to be like anyone else wants you to be. Your individuality is sacred.
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” ~ Dr. Seuss
Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. It's a deeply personal expression of who you are. Every time you dress, you are expressing your individuality - or your conformity.
Fashion
“It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone.” ~ Hans F. Hansen
Lynn Dell puts it this way: Fashion says "me too" and style says "only me." If you walk in the footprints of others, you wont make any of your own. Embrace your individuality; love what you love without worrying about judgment.
“Conformity is the only real fashion crime. To sublimate your spirit to some kind of group identity is succumbing to fashion fascism.” ~ Simon Doonan
Fashion is transient, trends come and go. It's not what you buy, it's what you do with it - that's style.
“The opposite of courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.” ~ Jim Hightower
As Rita Mae Brown said, “The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.”

Self-Reliance in a Connected World ~ by Philip Humbert

Every child must find their own way and learn to speak with their own voice. But we also live on a small planet with a degree of inter-dependence unknown in human history. Success is learning to balance these two things. Live your own life, based on your own ideas, strengths and resources. And, learn to be a valued contributor in a vibrant, connected and multi-cultural world. Continues...

Your Heart's Desire ~ by Peter Shepherd

We adopt identities aligned with the goals we make for our life, the things we want to create and achieve. Some of these goals are original and personal, e.g. to help people through healing or to be a performer or inventor. Others we inherit from our cultural upbringing, e.g. the judgment of success as riches, the fashions of what beauty consists of. Much of this is blindly followed if we do not live with full consciousness. Continues...

The Rise of Collectivism ~ by Jon Rappoport

The individual can refuse. He can take up a different position. He can invent from the platform of his own freedom. He doesn’t have to play the part of idiot or slave. He can reject the collective and the group. He can pursue the unlimited space that opens up when he is launching his best future. He can live through and by his own imagination, come hell or high water. Continues...
