This post isn’t about, red bottom shoes, the signature shoe design by Christian Louboutin.
This post is about using red bottom shoes as a metaphor for clone culture.
Here’s what I mean: A few months ago, I went to the movies with a friend to see the new Tupac biopic, All Eyez on Me, here in Atlanta. Upon arriving at the theater, I was immediately taken back by what I saw.
What nightclub did I just walk into???
Every woman there looked like she had just stepped off the red carpet. I mean, it was like everyone woke up that day and said, “let’s all wear the same outfit, same purse, same makeup, same lashes, same hair and walk around in the same shoes with a blank stare” today….and everrrrrrrryday!
And, while we’re at it, let’s make sure we IG and Snapchat it. Yep, I went there.
If you haven’t already noticed, we live in clone culture. That same, tired ass sexually repressed culture that has been around for years and years.
So, when the culture says, “wear this”, we all go out and get “that”. When the culture says, “buy that”, we all go out and buy that.
If you’re reading this, WAKE THE FUCK UP!!
You don’t need this, that or the other. BE the other… don’t BUY the other!
So many of us cover up who we are, to the core, with stuff. Lots and lots of stuff – clothes, shoes, makeup, products (ahem, product junkies I’m talking about you) and other unnecessary shit.
What are you trying to hide??
Ask yourself that the next time you make a purchase – what are you trying to cover up? Or, are you trying to avoid seeing something?
Are you avoiding being naked? Not in the sense of being in the nude, but naked in the sense that you’re afraid of who you are. Your own true nature.
Because, if you weren’t, you wouldn’t need it. You wouldn’t need this and that to make you feel perfect, whole and complete.
The things that you need will begin to FLOW to you BECAUSE you are, perfect, whole and complete. THAT’s your true nature.
I remember watching Oprah once and she said that she was at an awards show (I can’t remember if it was the Oscars or the Emmy’s), but she said that she was wearing a lot of makeup.
Bill Cosby came up to her and said, “what are you hiding?”.
We know when you’re trying to cover up something. We also know when you’re trying to hide yourself from us.
But, you’re not fooling anyone. Those filters, fixers and fans on social media might believe the hype that you’re putting out there, but not us.
Listen, you don’t have much time. With all the craziness that is happening in the world TODAY, we are BEGGING you to use your gifts to help others.
And, the quiet, still voice within is beckoning you to listen.
