You have a job to do, and it won’t look anything like you think right now.
You think you were born to work hard in a job that pays your bills and which, at best, you enjoy 50% of the time?
You think your job is to raise children in a nucleus family, occasionally arguing with your partner, and overall being “fine”?
You think you were born to do something “great”; you just don’t quite know what that is?
You think you have done your job and now you deserve to rest and enjoy your pension?
You think you don’t know what your life purpose is, so you choose not to investigate it any further?
You think it is too late anyway, or you’re too old, or life purpose and archetypal jobs are for esoteric hippies with their heads in the clouds?
Forget all that.
You know nothing.
Yes, that’s correct. You know nothing.
That is where it all really starts to become interesting.
When you stop thinking and knowing, and you start not knowing and experiencing.
Becoming an Experimenter to find out all these things that you know nothing about: That is where life happens.
The not knowing is the only place you can launch into your destiny from.
All your thoughts about it are meagre attempts to keep you safe. I say meagre, because you read until here. You would not have read until here if there wasn’t a part of you that is bored of being safe. That part is thirsty for life, and it wants to be discovered, first and foremost: by yourself.
So, give this part a moment: Rip away all your knowing right now.
Feel your fear and look around you. Who are you when you have no identity? When you are not your name, your job, your relationships, your vanity, your safety, your body? Who are you right now when you stand in nothing?
I believe you when you say you don’t know.
How could you? This is a place you haven’t been before.
You may not even be able to conceive of the possibility.
Getting to that edge of your knowing is a path.
It takes tremendous courage to step on that path. It takes courage because the path leads far beyond the current standard culture that you have been familiar with for your whole life. People will tell you that you are crazy and that it cannot be done. (So what? They’re not on that path.) You may even believe that you are crazy and that you are the only person on the planet that has no place here. It is not true.
Going on that path is incredibly rewarding. Once you started on it, you won’t go back. You will meet other people that want to create a sustainable culture; you will meet other “crazy” people, people that are not willing to compromise their aliveness just so that others feel safe and comfortable around them; you will feel alive; you will grow up into adulthood; you will discover the vast potential out there that has been invisible to you for so long. That is, if you’re really stepping on that path.
It leads out of Patriarchy and into Archiarchy, the culture that comes now that Matriarchy and Patriarchy have run their course.
