Not Of This World

Some people are not of this world...they belong to something else, but they do belong...they are adrift in their own worlds...belonging to nothing and to no one but themselves...they are restless spirits on an endless flight as the song goes...they don’t fit in and they don’t try to...the term comes from the pages of the bible and is sometimes used in a religious sense...but that’s not what we’re talking about in this case...it can be used in a different manner...other times, it literally means ‘not of this world’...different wavelength, different frequency, whatever...people of this ilk are often lost in a sea of confusion...not that they are the ones who are confused...sometimes on can have an understanding so profound, that they are misunderstood by society in general, even though they may have a very clear picture of what is going on...their insights are often not appreciated until they are no longer around...Helen Keller said that the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart...perhaps that’s how those kind of people live...with the heart...a heart that is pure and noble...and not with the mind that is contaminated with the toxins that society puts into it...of course this can place a lot of pressure on these ‘misfits’ as they often are labeled...and sometimes those who are not of this world see no choice but to leave this one.
