The balloon of suppression is popping all over the world, especially in the Mideast. Egypt, Social Media driven peaceful, well mostly peaceful, overthrow. Libya more violent. The word out on the streets and online is all these dictators must go. The year of the Rabbit allows the peacemakers to come forth. This is not to say all will be peace. Only to say that dictatorships will fall and fall fast because things that were unseen and previously unheard can now be unveiled.
It was so wonderful seeing the interview on 60 minutes about the Google employee, who is their manager for the Mideast, speak of when his blindfold was taken off that he went up and kissed each of his guards. He understood that they were uneducated and meant him no harm they just thought he was trying to destroy their country. The sounds of blows and the sound of kisses in return. Truly that is the path of the saint. No canonization here but the capacity to see through the normal perceptions with compassion has a sound wave that brought a country’s dictator down.
The sound current of compassion is loud. The sound of anger is jarring. The sound current of love is deep. The sound current of one voice is transformational. Every move we make seen or unseen creates a sound. That sound changes the composition of the Universe in some way. The more conscious we are the more vast the sound. The more connected we are the wider the sound. How is your current vibrating today?
Are you aware of how important what you are adding to the sound stew is? Is it a spice or ingredient that is needed or just way to much salt? Do you feel the need for more silence or more noise? Silence gives us vastness. It expands us. It slows us down and spreads us up, yes up. Noise and hurry makes us have tight squeaky sounds that irritate all around us.
Yesterday my beloved did and interview with PBS on Alternative ways of eating and living. They fell in love with his voice and told him he should do voice overs. He was completely non plused by this. His voice is majic I fell in love with his voice first. I have told him he could recite the ABC’s and I would listen gladly. It is his cadence, his rhythm, his North Carolina Accent and the feeling that he is just there with you. Why because he totally inhabits his voice. Because the range has depth, kindness and vastness cause you to trust him, to allow him to wrap you in his voice. He has not studied some book about influencing people with his cadence as others have he genuinely loves people. He is one of the most calm present people I have ever met. You just want to dive into his voice. They felt this and wanted more of his sound current. Do people run to hear you or run away from you when you speak? Maybe neither but pay attention to peoples response to your sound current. Watch their body language it will tell you how they really feel.
Want a couple great ways to open your voice and expand your sound current. Chanting is one great way to open your voice so you can rejoice. Open heart and open voice go together. Another is paying attention to how you speak. Actually record yourself for a day ad then listen back to all you say. It is quite an eye and ear opening lesson about your current sound.
