Alex Bird: Do not hide in shame. Be like a child. Express what is going on for you and don't feel ashamed of any state of being that you are experiencing. True beauty shines through authenticity. I have been through the period of change with my feathers molting and you did not see me hiding or feeling lesser. In humans there is so often a comparison: "I was this but now I'm this and that's not as I should be. I must go back to…." when in fact they should never be going back but continually be moving and leaping forward into the next moment and experience.
Alex Human: What if someone does not feel a sense of leaping but instead feels the energy of "holding back?"
Alex Bird: Holding back is a leap in it's own form. It takes a lot of energy to hold back, just as leaping does. It's the perspective of how it's done that changes the feeling of it.
