Having is evidence of wanting

Having is evidence of wanting

Secretly, perhaps, you want those unsafe behaviours!

Having is evidence of wanting!

There is an idea out there that our subconscious drives our conscious.

And as Carl Jung said, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate"

So what you have in your life at the moment, is perhaps, what you unconsciously want. Not want in an ideal, ego, perfect sense, more want in an existential kink sort of way.

In the book Existential Kink, Carolyn Elliott describes this potential drive we have, unconsciously, for the consciously unwanted things, and until we recognise our darkside and accept it, we can't deal with it.

The principle, Having is evidence of Wanting is a way to look at what your unconscious is telling you. A part of you that you are denying.

The evidence is out there..

Maybe it's time to fess up, having unsafe behaviours in an organisation is evidence of wanting unsafe behaviours on some level. There are many an unsafe behaviour accepted and allowed everyday. From ourselves too.

What would it look like if we acknowledged this as a starting point, instead of the constant denial we have through Zero harm and other mantras of ignorance.
