This is a message, an invitation, to all people who feel as if they’ve passed by that stage in life where we integrate what we’ve learned, face the world steadily and humbly, all the while keeping our inner child alive.
Our day and age lacks any form of initiation into this natural phase of life in which we pass into ‘Adulthood.’ It is characterized by responsibility, self respect, and humility. (amongst other things)
This creates a global culture of Man-boys and Woman-girls that never ‘grew into their boots’ and stay in a state of ignorance, decadence, and arrogance.
To approach this transition, we begin with humility. We see where we are at, we see who are for what we are, and we see what we can be if we just listen to what our ancestors, our community, and that deep feeling inside share with us.
This text, ‘Becoming an Adult,’ is a Plukrijp collaborative text approaching this transition with inspiration from beautiful minds, and beautiful hearts. We wish that you too, can see the beauty that hides within. It is there, though it may be veiled. In taking each veil off one by one, we get closer to the essence, and of becoming an adult.
We’ll see you there?
