out of reach


Where do you go to stay outside the reach of the establishment, the institution, the status quo, in order to feed your wildness?

‘These rituals include a gathering of tools, a wearing of a wandering uniform, a reciting/reading of the Wander’s Manifesto, and summoning the spirits of fellow wanderers.’*

This isn’t a place of invulnerability, indeed, it’s the opposite.  It’s where you’re able to move out of the reach of the judgements of those who don’t understand what you do or what you long to bring to others.  You have shaped practices that make it possible to do this daily.

An important note from Rohit Bhargava proffers, ‘there is beauty in the imperfect as well, and that beauty may be far more worthy of celebrating’.**

This “imperfection,” as Bhargava names it, keeps what we do out of reach of those who want to standardise and, whether consciously or unconsciously, control you.

The only control, though, comes from within, not without.  You know that whilst the best things include others, you must be capable of moving alone.

Where this begins to happen is in your understanding that you can make time.  It began by creating just ten minutes to explore your Must and now you know the creative human spirit is one of the most powerful things in the world.

In this way, you are able to inhabit the space that lies between the earth and the skies, between the reality of things and the possibility of things.
