No. 224: Anger, Grief, and Resurrection

I LOVE the emotion of ANGER.
The emotion of anger is separate from what people choose to DO with it.

The emotion of anger, in learning to sing, often precludes the emotion of GRIEF: 
Grief that we have not been able to express and SING in the way our Heart wants,
To connect to Life in a way that is exhilarating, vibrant, aligned, and true through the Music we Love.

The Grief to which Anger often leads
is the Springboard to Resurrection of Voice.

Grief cries out the frustration, the righteous indignation,
The years of feeling lost, and the often bitter-sweet sensation of being Found 
After a long time not knowing where You were.

Ah, yes, anger is good.  And I am not afraid of It,
For I can humbly give thanks that I,
Once lost, have ever-increasing experiences of being Found:
And these experiences, in Voice and Song
Parallel nothing I could ever imagine.

Voice brings me to a place 
Where Resurrection is a moment-by-moment Gift
And the Light of Life is blinding 
To all that is not IT.

This is not psychology. This is not religion.  This is SINGING, in my opinion, at Its Best.

This is LIFE.  This is LOVE.  This is Opera Organically.

Happy, Happy Day of Resurrection, World!
