The constantly evolving afterword to The You Code:
Integrating Your New Life Map with The Decade of Deliverance
First, the afterword from the book for readers of the first edition. After this, we will move on to updates and new material:
“The past is beautiful because one never realizes an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don’t have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.”
– Virginia Woolf.
What will the future you say about your past? From the perspective of our universe, you may be a mere speck on a speck, but one grain of sand dropped onto a mountain of sand can bring down the entire mountain. It’s a mighty challenge to shift the trajectory of history, yet that’s exactly what was triggered by one woman refusing to give up her seat on a bus, and a few rowdy colonists pushing tea crates into an harbor. We now have tools that brave woman and those defiant colonists could only have dreamed of, so let’s use them wisely. Will we use the Internet as a highway of hysteria and hate, or as an entwining olive branch that unites our Global Tribe for the first time in 70,000 years? The former choice allows governments to isolate peoples, and the latter choice allows peoples to isolate governments. Thanks to the Internet, we get to choose at The Fork in the Road (from Part Four) in a way that our ancient ancestors couldn’t. But technology has also created a double-edged sword by making us so interconnected; never before have we been able to rise or fall together, so greatly, and at such speed.
When you know your purpose in the Information Age, with the opportunities being afforded us, you no longer have to make your peg fit the hole; your peg defines the hole. Fortune favors the motivated in the next stage of the human adventure because opportunity is at your fingertips, and it doesn’t care about race, culture, privilege, or nationality. Knowing your purpose in life makes motivation a given.
There are times when mere survival is suicide. 70,000 years ago, we migrated out of our home; pushed by food scarcity and pulled by the prospect of a new world, a parallel to the situation an increasing number of humans are in now with the rise of the machines. Don’t fear leaving the familiar behind. Science and spirituality can be mutually inclusive ideas. As I showed in Part Seven, those ancient migrators took their most cherished beliefs with them, and so can we. Build digital pyramids in our new world, on a foundation of the higher self; of love, compassion, and purpose.
“Man is a polluted river. One must be a sea, to receive a polluted river and not be defiled. Behold I teach you the Superman: he is this sea.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche.
Nietzsche contended that humans are an unstable bridge between apes and what he called “The Superman,” the ultimate stage of our evolution; “Man is a rope, fastened between animal and Superman- a rope over an abyss.” And“Man must be overcome.” The Superman has achieved power through the love and acceptance of his preordained path in life in all its bittersweet glory. Powered by Genetypal purpose, we have the ability to cross this unstable bridge. “Behind your thoughts and feelings stands a mighty commander, and unknown sage. My brother, if you are lucky you will have one virtue and no more; thus you will go more easily over the bridge,” said Nietzsche.
Supermen and Superwomen, like all super-heroes, need a special power. I refer to this special power as your Dominant Driver. As Carl Jung said in his pioneering research of what I now call Genetypes, “They seem to hold a special spell,” and “The one thing we refuse to admit is that we are dependent on ‘powers’ that are beyond our control.”
