When I was a kid, Legos came in a big box, all different shapes and sizes, all jumbled and mixed up. Now a days, they are sold in pre-planned packages, with precise directions and only enough pieces to create one possible version of one thing. Or so they say…
BORING! And symptomatic of the forced sterilization of our society as a whole. They want to take everything beautiful, everything that is crazy, and messy, and complicated and sanitize it. Sell it back to us in the “one right” pre-fabricated form. Nothing is sacred, whether it’s sub cultures like punk rock, spiritual practices like yoga, or the very earth itself.
This is why every moment of our everyday lives must become constant acts of creative resistance.We must be committed to digging deep within, to finding our passions, purposes and gifts. So we can come together, to collaborate and contribute to the collective creation and evolution of our relationships, communities, and species as a whole, for the sake of ourselves, our loved ones, and this planet.
We must keep moving, wild and unpredictable, towards more joy and freedom and complex self expression for everyone. This keeps us from getting stuck, always one step ahead of being co-opted by capitalism. This is what it means to live! This is what it means to out-create the matrix!
