In Human Design, Generators, like myself, are responsive creatures. We are supposed to wait for things to happen and initiating/pushing things ahead before their time yields suboptimal results.
This has been so difficult to embody as our culture values action and taking the bull by its horns. We are taught that if we want something, we need to go get it and doing otherwise is lazy or worse, passive.
No one wants to be passive. Instead of taking the bull by its horns, passivity means you are letting the bull stomp over you.
There is a clear lack of control in that.
And a huge value in our culture is control or at least the perception of it.
But control doesn’t always means you have to be showing that bull who is boss. You can be in control in any situation. And when you are in control, you trust the situation. You trust that what is unfolding is doing so in the time its meant to be.
Waiting for things to happen may appear passive but if it is done with intention, it is absolutely not.
