Acknowledging To Be or Not To Be
So says Hamlet in Act 3, Scene I, you think, when, in this physical reality, these words echo uncomfortably in the human heart.
Are you, that part of your being that is you, that journeys as soul, that is source, to be or not to be?
Are you to be whom you are, to carry forth and to complete the mission and purpose you choose to pursue and to manifest? Or are you not to be, to carry forth and to complete the mission and purpose one other than you chooses for you to pursue and to manifest?
Are you individual as Henry Miller described self in Black Spring;
“Tomorrow you may bring about the destruction of your world. Tomorrow you may sing in Paradise above the smoking ruins of your world-cities. But tonight I would like to think of one man, a lone individual, a man without name or country, a man whom I respect because he has absolutely nothing in common with you—MYSELF. Tonight I shall meditate upon that which I am.”
Or are you un-self, your being-ness programmed and in lockstep with George Orwell’s 1984;
“The two aims of the Party are to conquer the whole surface of the earth and to extinguish once and for all the possibility of independent thought.”
The bluntness of the parameters, the contemporary Not To Be;
Are you with the family or not? Are you with the group, the collective, or not?
The unending psyop;
“All you have is family.”
“Our team is really a family.”
“You’re deserting the family.”
“Our department is like a family.”
“At our Corporation, we’re a family.”
“Above all, we are community.”
“To be politically correct.”
As retired psyops specialist Ellis Medavoy said, “I think we’ve reached the point where the collective doesn’t even need a leader anymore.”
That which is Not to Be – Individual Achievement, Imagination, Creative Power.
Instead, the vision of another whose New World is Not To Be You.
As wrote Aldous Huxley in Brave New World: “Ninety-six identical twins working ninety-six identical machines!”
