How do we inspire people to express themselves?
We express ourselves as much as possible
We believe in the notion that all things are connected.
Our dream involves letting go of any illusion of separateness that exists among us and becoming fully aware of just how connected we all are. Not just between each other, but between ourselves and the world we live in as a whole.
We will to do this simply by being who we are and becoming conscious of it ourselves.
We hope you will too.
Expression--true, fiery, unapologetic expression is our greatest tool for transformation in ourselves and in our world. Expressing ourselves is expressing our own pearl of real truth. In our world right now, truth is a rather miraculous thing. Let’s spit out our truth like nothing can stop us. We must expose and hold our hardened little parts and welcome them into the party. That’s what we have music, art, poetry, literature, films for a stab at exposing a piece of our truth--in hopes it may resonate with someone else and make a change.
YOU ARE UNIQUE
Fear is a mechanism that helps us survive, but it should not run your life.
Many people make daily decisions based out of fear. Fear of being alone, fear of getting hurt, fear of being seen, these are all natural things to be afraid of, but they are not what drives you. Often, when you make a decision based in fear, you end up depriving yourself of what you really wanted in the first place. Hurting others to prevent yourself from getting hurt, doesn't accomplish what you set out to do, it doesn't keep yourself from getting hurt, it only hurts yourself more.
When you are able to be completely vulnerable, to know what you want, what you fear, and what you love, you will find what you love to be the most important. Love, is what drives you.
The desire to be connected is what makes you afraid of being alone. The desire to be loved is what makes you afraid of heartbreak. The desire to belong is what makes you afraid of being seen.
When you are able to recognize fear for what it is, a part of yourself, then you can recognize your desire, and find a way to get it from a place of love, profound authenticity, and vulnerability. Being open, naked, and honest, is the way to become who you are meant to be. Making the decision to be yourself, despite being afraid of rejection, is how you will find where you belong.
“There is a vitality,
a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost."
― Martha Graham
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
