No. 207: Quote of the Day, and a Thanksgiving Note

There's No Going Back
"Being an Evolutionary, I don't think going back to the way things used to be could ever be an appropriate response to the rapid and significant change that we're all in the midst of today. In fact, there is no going back. Evolution is a moving train. Cosmic evolution, biological evolution, and cultural evolution are all going somewhere new. The worldspace that we all share and co-create—whether we live in the foothills of the Himalayas or the busy streets of Manhattan—is part of a global movement and a powerful ongoing process of change. We're all living in a very special time. It's a time when this profound evolutionary development can be felt and seen more palpably and more tangibly than ever before."
—Andrew Cohen

Dear Friends,

...On this Thanksgiving Eve, I give thanks that, moving forward, we can create a reality together where ALL are free to express themselves through "HeArt". I embrace the future, and stand in awe of what will come!Happy Thanksgiving from Opera Organically!

~Your Rebecca

No. 206: Growing into Voice

Voice is not just something we study.
Voice is something we grow in-, up-, down- and out- to.
Like a tree has no idea how it will be each new year
Until it touches a different corner of the sky,
We singers can delight in how Voice calls us 
To stretch, and dance, and feel our Way
Into more and more completeness.

Opera Organically IS this Journey of growth--collective and individual.  

THIS is Life.
THIS is Love.

THIS is Opera Organically.

No. 205: The Singer Knows S/he Knows...

The Singer knows S/he knows Opera Organically
When walking the path of Voice
Like drinking the Water of Life
And eating the Fruit of Love.

THIS is Life.
THIS is Love.
THIS is Opera Organically

No. 204: What if...?

What if the fame/mania of our culture is a mask for a much deeper human need?

What if what we really want is not just to SING and BE FAMOUS, but to LIVE in a way which is thrilling, meaningful, celebrated, adulated, honored, set apart, special, unique, all-powerful, gorgeous, intense, fulfilling, scintillating, blessed, and all together wonderful?

Living Opera Organically is about knowing that Voice, the Voice we crave--the Voice we want to sing with the rest of our lives whether rich, poor, sick, healthy, sad, happy, captive, or free--is ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE, ALWAYS PRESENT, always ALL the things we "want" to be.  

When a singer knows this, s/he has realized the truth of something much bigger than any individual.  S/he has realized the true power of singing, of connection, of life, of LOVE.

THIS is Opera Organically.
THIS is Life.
THIS is Love.
