In 1975, Diana Ross sang a song called, “Do you know where you’re going to?” Some of the lyrics are: “Do you know where you’re going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to? Do you know? Do you get what you’re hoping for? When you look behind you, there’s no open door. What are you hoping for? Do you know?” Many people in the world do not have a clue where they are going to and find themselves struggling against or with realities they cannot seem to control. Others are entirely sure that they are the ones directing things and to what end… these may be the most clueless of all, because while they think that they are the players – they have been super-played. Then there are those who have been warned of the coming of this existential angst, its true causes and told what to do about it, whose biggest plan seems to be to wait for an escape from it all, while hiding their heads in the sand; when in reality, they are meant to have the answers for how people are supposed to be able to overcome it. And on we go towards the point of no return.
We have been saying repeatedly, since the beginning of the year that 2021 is not the kind of year to play dumb, to rest on one’s laurels or to try to just get by. This year demands all of our full engagement to understand what is going on, why, and what to do about it – and to act in accordance with the understanding gathered… or else find oneself stuck in a world that is desperately trying to suck everyone into a vortex of stupidity. The month is September, four months remain… time to get to work or double-down if you already had. Build an outcome you can confidently answer for.
