‘Knowing oneself’ is nice, but it is definitely not the end of the road. Rather, it is the beginning of an entirely new way to walk the life of geometry that we were given at birth. However, there is so much homogenization in what normally goes associated with it that ‘Know Thyself’ became an end to itself in the strictly philosophical approach that seven centered humanity had towards existence. So much of what fuels homogenized pseudo-spiritualities is based on this: renouncing the world and its transitory pleasures.
The experiment that Human Design proposes parts from a totally different premise, where the higher purpose of ‘Knowing Oneself’ can only come to fruition when one is fully prepared to embrace the surrendered experience of meeting one’s circumstance with awareness. In other words, when one is ready to meet and relate to the ‘other’ from a place that is not blindly driven by the distortive forces of the genetic imperative to reproduce, but from the potential communion in purpose that emerges in communicating through individual and differentiated awareness.
