story

Within each of us

is a god

and

a goddess

and I mean that

when I say

each of us

if you believe

in the gender binary

that’s a great place

to start from

Give the female

all the most

powerful,

archaic,

primal

femininity

Give the male

all the most

powerful,

archaic,

primal

masculinity

Then realise

these are both

within your grasp

that you have both

These two things

are just casings

housings

for something more

more abstract

more unitary

neither god

nor goddess

it’s more than that

by being less than that

and that new thing

is just a casing

housing

for everything

and everything is

is just a casing

housing

for every

every thing

every nothing

The nothingness

that there appears to be

is just the blank slate

upon which

the shadowplay of life

is played

the projection is shown

the pixels are sent

we are

so symbiotic

with our shadowplays

our films

our tv programmes

our video games

our poems

our stories

because they are archetypal

because they are primal emotions

because they are shown to us

that’s a powerful tool

to create shadowplays

of all kinds

not just media

You can do this in life

tell yourself a story

make it

come true

It may seem reductive

to bring everything

to the level

of just being a story

but stories

are how we have always

made sense

of random events

it’s how we created logic

rationality

science

how we have learned so much

but

we need to remember

there is always

more

to learn

and sometimes

the things we learn

we’ve already learned

and they’re the basis

of the things we know

but we didn’t realise

we knew them

all science

works on the basis

that nothing made sense

so

we had to make sense of it

the scientific method

is a story

journeys

with beginnings

middles

and ends

written down

and read to people

we all know how to make stories

we all know how to tell stories

we all constantly tell stories

we all constantly communicate stories to each other

a joke

is a story

an anecdote

is a story

a life

is a story

what you got from the shop

is a story

So,

be the writer

of your story

because,

that’s an option

now get writing
