We are sacrificing our Humanity to preserve our supposed Way of Life, which is not a Way of Life, but that which stands in the way of Life. By denying ourselves and others the right to their Human-ness, (vulnerability, sensitivity, fallibility, heart), we are denying Life itself. Don’t go another day without speaking your Heart. Rise in honor of those fallen, who have dared to speak, and take your rightful place in the world of True Humanity. Stand. Align yourself with Human-Kind (Kindness which evidences Humanity). Be brave, compassionate. Bare your Soul to others and hold space for all in your experience to do the same. Drop into your Heart. Breath. Listen. Love your Human-ness and the Human-ness of those around you. Activate Human-Kind-ness.
Tell the story. Tell all the stories. Use your dignity, your passion, your fear, your stillness, your frailty, and your courage to show us our hearts, our souls and that which we dare not speak. Speak it. Speak the unspeakable that we might speak it too. Reveal to us all that has been concealed. That we who watch, might see ourselves back. Truly see ourselves. Be the narrative of love, power, sex, addiction and life or death. Use your physical body, your emotional body and your spiritual body to tell the story of humanity. You who are the chosen, you who are the artists, the actors, activate and humanize me.
Through examining the Mitochondria of our DNA, Scientists have traced back to our point of origin as Humans on this Earth, 30 thousand years ago, to one Woman, who lived and bore children along the Fertile Plains of the Nile River. This one Woman, based on Scientific Research has the same DNA Markers as 95% of the existing planet. 95% of us have come from the same Original Mother. This is Science, supporting the Metaphysical Truth. There is No Separation. Separation is a Myth. We are all human beings being human.
‘Your most basic tool in determining persona, and the transformative power therein starts with the identification of need. The belief that there is a need is the instigator and underwriter of all human behavior, occurring at the beginning and the end of all running systems. Need is the instigator of all active storyline.’ ~ Excerpt from the upcoming book The Alexander Method: Transformational Acting for the Total Actor
Our artistry is the great mirror that we as a culture hold up to understand who we are, where we are, and if we are headed in the right direction. In order for art to do its job, the reflection must be clear. As an artist reflecting culture, if you are using yourself as the medium of expression, you too must be clear. There can be no part of unexamined ego distorting the image. If you are to reflect a clear picture, there cannot be any of your depiction that includes your own needs, fear of loss or considered action, unless it completely aligns with the persona you portray. ~ Excerpt from the upcoming book, The Alexander Method: Transformational Acting for The Total Actor
