Most of the time, we react. When things don’t go the way we want it, we react in our habitual way, we get upset and angry, or we avoid and escape. When we sense a slight attack, we fight and protect, or we run!
Most of the time, we are one gigantic reacting machine: automatic, self-operating, industrial, no pause, go gO, GO!
We do this because we are programmed to act and react this way. It is the old conditioning that had a purpose of building the complex society that we have today. Yet we are evolving and we are leaping.
Most of these old conditionings no longer serve us. We are at the time to reflect, pay attention, create changes and liberate from fragmentations and dual fixations.
Let’s take a pause and reconsider what we really need now. Should we react, or should we learn a new dance?
Recently I am very fascinated by the idea of Improvisational theatre. The whole play doesn’t rely on a script. There are no pre-written dialogues, actions or story. The theatre is created right there in the moment collaboratively by all actors involved. Everything and everyone participates actively at that very moment to create.
In a co-create scenario, actors would need to let go of their own agenda and egoism in order to collaborate. They respond to each other and interact. Synchronize.
How about we live a life in this way, a life that is not controlled by this old habitual reacting machine? How about we really try to communicate and co-operate on a micro level?
How about we take pauses and observe. Paying attention to each little detail and signs from the Whole, we respond and whisper to everything around us without fighting back, and then we join in and engage wholeheartedly and gracefully as a Whole?
Like singing together in harmony (or not in harmony!).
