|One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche|
October 29, 2008
As we figure out what is ours in life, what we are, what we can do, and what is appropriate for our abilities and constitution, we develop our own regimens and methods suitable for our desires and purpose. Some of my approach and what I find inspiring is merely personal with no broader value. Other parts are generalizable and widely useful to clear openings through self-paralyzing clutter from which each person can then go forward in their own way.
We are trained, trusting, and largely unaware of our shared self-confinement as if in a small patch of a dark forest. Because these are the boundaries of our typical experience, we take it as a representation of the universe and usually dismiss anomalous events defying this model, quickly returning to the programming of passive compliance.
But there are strange deviants among us with poor ability to mindlessly repeat slogans and obey gaseous leaders of captivity and restraint. These irrepressibly curious have to by instinct explore possibility and go out to probe the edges, only to often find what has been called a boundary was only a timid guess made from afar. These imaginary end points are not ends at all, but can be traversed as portals to emancipation.
A heretic discovers light and suddenly the forest is not what it seemed to be in darkness. Priests who lied about their knowledge and misrepresented reality are forever dismissed and suddenly the books of law become blank slates. Another wanderer finds a way through what was once called a dense dead end, and a larger world is revealed. The fearful, lazy, tired, and easily content remain in the dark confines of the forest while the wanderers go out to meet the world and find similar spirits who escaped the dimness of safety and related prejudices.
