This month is a final exam of sorts, after a very long season of lessons. The trick question (& also the most important) asks whether or not you've graduated. Matriculation means advancing to the next level after completing the required number of courses. It doesn't matter how your teachers feel about you either; if you get the grade, you get the credit; if you get the credits, the diploma is yours.
To extend the metaphor: In the School of Life, you've taken the hardest classes & completed the most difficult tests. And it doesn't matter if you didn't get all As- or any As for that matter- since perfection was never required. Is, in fact, impossible. Plus The School of Life doesn't give grades anyway- the rubric is pass/fail- & if you're on the upside of underground, you passed. You live to fight another day. With each battle, you advance in this holy war.
& If you feel like you're not advancing- now we've arrived at the heart of the matter. Here is our riddle, the crux of our quiz. Your refusal to exalt (read: promote) yourself is your only obstacle. You're waiting on outside approval for the feats you've accomplished; but you'll never level up until you give YOURSELF the credit. And after that, learn how to celebrate yourself too, since your arrival in a new element will not be marked by fanfare & praise. Your elite new classmates ('cus actually its not lonely at the top...) are too busy being great to state the obvious: YOU MADE IT.
(Now act like it.)
