I must listen to my life telling me who I am*
Beware roots. Beware purity. Beware fixity. Beware the creeping feeling that you belong. Embrace flow, impurity, fusion.**
Jordon Peterson writes about the natural world in which we all have to live:
Considering nature as purely static produces serious errors of apprehension.^
We’re already who we are and we’re always in a state of flux.
To try and remain the same is a highly energy-sapping strategy. The trick is to keep changing in the same direction and, when we do, discover flow is open-ended :
The flow experience, like everything else, is not “good” in an absolute sense. It is good only in that it has potential to make life more rich, intense and meaningful; it is good because it increases the strength and complexity of life.^^
You have your roots, you have your purity, you have your fixity but don’t be satisfied with these: life is found in both the arriving and the journeying – into the flow, impurity and fusion.
