The Rebel is a fierce and feisty fighter. The Rebel believes they’re free, but they’re not.
They fight adversity so they require adversity for their survival. They fight the mundane, so they need the mundane. They fight ‘the system’ so they need ‘the system’, crafting their prison as they seek the freedom they so desire.
A Rebel writes because they are trying to prove to the world that they can do something useful and valuable, or they use their writing to prove a point, because they’ve got something to say. Something they feel will change the world. They are an activist who uses their characters to express their socio-political views, and in doing so, kills the pure beauty of the writing. They manufacture life experiences that create drama so they have something to write about. Their writing, far from changing the world, actually maintains the status quo of duality and fear. When you write from the Rebel you have something to prove but you’re taking a stance, not a stand.
The Rebel can only feel power in opposition, and this is where they give it all away. They feel omnipotent because it is them against the world, but the only person they are really against is themselves. They are the writer who wants to control the process, but ends up fighting the process. They want to know exactly what they’re crafting so they know what they’re up against, and in that wanting to know, they leave no room for the mystery of writing.
They hide behind the wall of thinking they know best, in their prison of control. Existing in this prison, they are unable to access pure truth because of the walls around them. They are scared to submit fully to writing because their power (at least what they think is their power and is really just fight) is only active when they feel they’re in control, which is when they are in opposition. So they oppose submission and are caught in an endless battle. You want to submit. Your Rebel fights it. In, out, in, out. The journey to your craft becomes an agonising seesaw. Your Rebel wants to win. At any cost. But the cost is you.
The Rebel will overwrite, using too long or too many words, because they need to prove themselves worthy. They rarely finish what they have started because they oppose their own genius. The Rebel’s writing doesn’t say much that hasn’t been said before, but they believe they are so original. They struggle to take criticism because they know best, and because they are an archetype mired in shadow, criticism will always affect them. Sometimes it will halt the writing process altogether. They would never write every day because they’ve placed a judgement on what that means.
The Royal is expansive, inclusive, single pointed, still, solid and knowing. They embody the true power of the writer. They exist on their regal ground, independent of all that is external to them. They need no opponent because they are in their power with no need to prove it. The Royal writes for their own pleasure, their own turn on. They know they are a writer and have owned it fully, activating within them a powerful, yet empty, desire to write. They spin their craft from the empty space. No expectations, no constructs, no fight. Words fall naturally from their state of full submission.
They embody pure truth, crafting words into stories that activate those who read them. They believe in themselves fully. They stand in their power and can choose both their life reality and their writing: how to write, what to write, and where and when to place it in the public domain. In the face of everything appearing to the contrary, the Royal stands, existing in pure knowing. They experience a multi-dimensional reality that stands their writing apart from the rest and claims their place in writing royalty with no need for any external acknowledgement or credentials.
The Royal needs no audience yet knows that they will be read. They don’t care to have an impact yet their words, like whispers, ripple beyond them in simple stillness. They craft new words and worlds that have yet to be experienced, dropping the myths and stories that define new paradigms. Their writing is concise and to the point, each word placed for precision to convey not only their meaning, but the energy behind them. They are unmoved by criticism, yet take the codes that offer enhanced precision for their pieces. They finish pieces, or they don’t, but are unphased by either because they are guided by pure genius. They know what matters to them, and are able to bring those pieces to completion, effortlessly. If it matters to them, they will write every day, but not because they are compelled to, or even compelling themselves to. They do so because they are moved to.
