It is exhausting. Physically. Psychologically.
Yet to be honest, I have no proper concept of it. Upon stepping out the door I know that I have the same door to enter through.
I cannot imagine ‘no place to lay my head’—such a thing lies beyond comprehension.
Foxes have holes, birds have nests . . . this, is most. And I believe far too many (most?) of us who fall within this binary unconsciously disavow the excremental remainder—that is, the ‘one’. We suppose the ‘two’ form a totality (‘foxes/birds’, ‘rich/poor’, ‘bourgeoisie/proletariat’, etc. . . ).
However, with every oppositional binary, the totality of the ‘two’ must account for that what is ‘leftover’: the ‘one’ (in Lacanian terms: 1 + 1 + a, or 1 + 1 = 3).
Foxes have holes, birds have nests—but the son of man has no place to lay his head.
Christ is the universal singular. He signifies the excremental remainder—he lies outside ‘the count’.
I hear many speak of the ‘kingdom of god’, yet very few speak of the kingdom of God.
I have become convinced that the reason for this is this unconscious disavowal of the remainder. Most wish (at least in word) to improve society proper, rather than join those outside ‘the count’ to form a society outside society proper.
However, revolutions do not improve Establishments—they smash them to make way for the New.
Let there be no misunderstanding: the kingdom of God is not ‘capitalism with a human face’.
Most assuredly, I cannot at all tell you what ‘it’ (i.e. the kingdom of God) ‘is’—but I can tell you what ‘it’ is not: it is not the (relatively safe) symbolic ecosystem of Western capitalism.
The kingdom of God is not ‘holes’, nor ‘nests’. It resides in the ‘one’.
And to seek such a space one must not seek differentiation from ‘the other’, but rather differentiation from one’s own self.
This is the seed of Universal Revolution. This is the Idea.
