No. 251: Of COURSE we wouldn't sing

If we look at the world
--really look--
and see 
how most of us view our voices
we wouldn't sing.

Who in hell
would subject themselves
to an environment
of such silencing fear?

Who in hell
would want to live
in a place 
of vocal impossibility?

We think we don't want to live there--

and yet most of us do.

Our automatic answers to 

"Can you sing?" 


--a fine answer--
if your Heaven is built in silence
or in spoken or written word,
not sung--
by all means, build It 
like that.

if your Heaven 
and YOU
are in the CENTER of It
--but you're not there yet--

THIS question:

Do you WANT to sing?

If the answer always comes back


look around you
and KNOW
there is an alternative to the madness: a H(e)aven
where Voice is safe
where you can build YOUR Body Instrument
to a strength where everything is possible
--to where your dreams become your life--
and everyone around you--including YOU--

It's about paradigm shift.  About building Heaven on Earth.  About potential and possibility, honest inquiry, and powerful, individual and collective TRUTH.

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