At the very basis of Human Design is a goal — the goal to liberate the self, the being, the unique being, the individual. And of course, the only way you can do that is you have to move away from mind, because there is no way in which you can live out the potential of what your life can be if your mind is making the decisions. It simply doesn't work. It cannot work.
As long as you're making decisions with your mind, you are cut off from your unique Life Force and spending your whole life tapping into everybody else's, tapping into what the program imposes on you so that you think it is your force, and it's not. It is this unique Life Force in each of us that, when you're operating correctly, is what begins to emerge. Its power begins to be displayed as its correctness becomes your frequency.
The Channels are the very root for all of us because what they're really pointing to is the fixed, narrow imprint that we are here to fulfill. You’re not here to fulfill the potential of the Not-Self. You can't; there is no such thing. This is just about becoming homogenized. It’s falling into the rest of the sadness and frustration and pain that is the nature of being on this planet. The normal world is filled with human beings who are deeply disturbed, and they are disturbed because they are not connected to their unique life force. They are always trying to accommodate, fit in, work with, and be like what they‘re not.
The Channels themselves lay a foundation for what we are here to perfect, after all. The moment you express your nature correctly is the moment that perfection is what it is. It is the same word as saying ‘unique’, because there is no comparison. But there is something else. When you live out your true nature, you tap into this force — it’s your life force. It has to do with your health, your vitality, your spirit, and your mental acuity. Because this is where your power is, this is where your essence is. This is where your gifts are, where your promise is. This is where you’re different from anybody else. And it's about tapping into it. You don't do that by ‘thinking it.’
At the very basis of Human Design is a very simple thing. What we have been able to learn from the revealed mechanics is a way of understanding how we can navigate on this plane in such a way that we get to live out our true potential — the potential of the form, the potential of our vehicles, because it is the vehicle that is the life. It is the vehicle that empowers this life force. When you're operating correctly, what you're doing is enriching the potential of this holistic being because you bring out the essence of yourself. It's there in the Channel.
