If you do what you are “supposed-to do” and this doesn’t get you
to where you are “supposed-to go,” what are you “supposed-to-do?”
The aim of this seminar is –
To alert you to the fact that supposed-to’s become habits, and habits become you. Without supposed-to’s, what do you suppose you would be supposed-to do? Supposed-to’s are implicit in every culture (which you’re supposed-to belong to, otherwise what would you know you are supposed-to do?) for those who are smart enough to read the cultural implicits, or dumb enough to abide by them. To make a point of the fact that (are you for this?), infants become toddlers because they’re supposed to even though nobody told they were supposed-to, so if you’re waiting for someone to tell you what you’re supposed-to do, are you waiting for Godot? To whet your appetite, by how your supposed-tos guard you against the absurdities that comprise your life. And to leave you reckoning about the question: if they are not my supposed-to’s, where are my supposed-to’s coming from? Since I can’t live without them. Oh and by the way, have you thought about whether or not you are supposed to fall in love?
The mantra for this seminar is –
Are you supposed-to be the person you turned out to be?
The how of this seminar centers on –
A whole bunch of how-to’s:
Read the material or do the assignments or, pay somebody to do them for you because you are supposed-to be prepared.
How would you participate in this seminar if you didn’t do it according to what you are supposed-to?
Did you choose the parents that you needed? Or were you supposed-to just wing-it the rest of the way?
If you are supposed-to know the answer, why were you not supposed-to start with it?
If you are supposed-to do what you are supposed-to do when you are supposed-to do it why, do you suppose, you may not? Whose supposed-to’s is that?
If you are supposed-to be somebody you ain’t, what do you suppose you are supposed-to do about that?
Why do other people’s supposed-to’s take precedence over yours? If your partner is not deferring to your supposed-to’s, whose supposed-to’s are you deferring to?
