Kegan explains that we are like caterpillars and we are supposed to become butterflies but if we never fully develop, then we die a caterpillar, never having known our full potential as humans. We will stay stuck frustrated calling out, those who might be allies. We will stay State Troopers who simply follow orders. We will storm capitols unaware that our white privilege and racism is actually a self imposed prison. If we don’t develop we lose out on meeting our fellow humans in their rich diversity, ready to show us things we have never seen, speak with us in ways we’ve never heard and walk with us to places we’ve never been. I believe this is what Rumi meant when he wrote: “Out beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field, I’ll meet you there…” A place we can meet as our full selves in our full humanity.
