Your Life Emerges from the Loam
Level 3: Master of Mundane
"Supreme Executive Power should be derived from the MASSES, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony"
- Monty Python and The Holy Grail
Nothing like a little preaching from the Anarcho-Syndicalist Commune to start your day.
I see the word "emerge" and what flashes through my mind is Graham Chapman playing King Arthur in Monty Python and The Holy Grail, reverently speaking of The Lady of The Lake emerging with Excalibur to grant him the power of 'King.'
(And then he gets into an argument with a man scooping mud into a basket about how supreme executive power should be decided)
We live a life where it feels like we should be able to craft the outcome or our existence.
We should be able to gather all the masses together and strategically and justly determine who wields supreme executive power.
Or even simply for our own life. We should be able to decide what it is we want, how we want it, and have it that way, right?
But nothing ever feels totally in our control does it?
We can't just "make" the reality that we want by pointing ourselves towards it with “intentional action” and willing it into existence, can we?
"HEY Now! What about creating the life that we want? What about our solvable problem? What about manifestation and intent!" - I hear you interject
Before you measure me against a duck, let's chat.
(That was a witch burning joke, had to pull one more from Monty Python before continuing)
Because there's truth in both.
There's truth in the idea that you can intentionally craft life the way you want it, and there's truth that oftentimes the outcome just seems to emerge out of the damn lake to give you the entire world.
And I'd wager (at least for me it's certainly been the case), that the BEST outcomes, the ideal outcomes, the ones which align most with taking us towards the life that we want to be living ...
Are the ones that seem to emerge out of the damn lake to give us the world.
It’s almost like magic.
Emergence is a powerful living force you can take advantage of, and whether you do or not, it’s going to happen to you anyway.
But you’ve got to understand why emergence is so powerful and inevitable, so let’s explore that for a moment
Specifically the emergence of our very existence as we know it.
