Meeting of MINDS!

What a blessed and wonderful thing that is, can be and will be! When 2 heads are better than one…imagine 2 brainstyles (or however many there are lol) being BETTER than one. Great minds think alike…and GREATER minds think differently.

 As Temple Grandin so rightly says…take away the Autistic Mind…take away much of the amazing technology of today! No brain is perfect. Underneath our diagnosis/ and labels we are all human. Wired in differing ways. Functioning on differing levels. Understanding this paradigm is what happens when you love someone with Autism. It becomes second nature. You feel it and breathe it and if you open yourself you understand it. Through that understanding your senses become heightened. Life to the 10th power. It should happen to everyone.

Annie Eskeldson said it beautifully on the AutismHWY Fridays Blogradio show recently…”I love the person Autism has made me.” It is something we in the Autism community all feel collectively! True, we seem to have alot of other issues, factions…and YES~~>divisions. But, I think we all can get behind the words that Annie spoke. We have all said them. If we havent, surely we have felt them.

 Autism SHINES…It shines a certain sensability to you. A light that had been fading with all of the inconsequential data we barrage ourselves with minute by minute. Autism helps you to take  a pragmatic look at how the brain processes the information it recieves. Such a simple life skill we should all cultivate. At the stem of our existence truly!

So I wonder why have we overlooked it for so long? The simple exhilerating fact that people need to reshape humanity by getting into our own heads! Literaly. Autism has taught me this. Autism presents you with a deeper knowledge of theory of mind. Would I have ever taken the time to consider how others think?…probably not! I  have been so ‘brainwashed’ into believing that there is only one brain-style… and that we all think alike in life. Those learned assumptions are what impede Autism Awareness. Opening the doors of people’s processing and meeting those minds with information is our goal.

Teaching children about the brain and how it operates is the goal of Our ”Making friends with Autism” COLORING BOOK…when people become “brain aware” …this world will be a safer place for our ASD population! So come on people…what are you waiting for?? Meet some amazing people here on! Make friends with Autism…and see what a mind-opener it is!! Perhaps in that process of examining the differing brain-styles you will meet your own mind in a whole new way!!
