I’ve recently embarked on another journey, one that I had been avoiding…Improv! Doesn’t sound too scary, right? As eccentric as I can be, I still have a bit of a security blanket on me. I knew I had to sign up to release this blanket. I can’t lie, I was scared, excited, and nervous all at the same time. The 1st class seemed to just linger, as I cannot lie, part of me was wondering, ‘when is class over?’. The blanket I hold is, something my mother taught me is: to always be a lady. Yes, sometimes I chuckle about that, because there have been TOO many occasions were I have not acted like a lady. As each week passes, I feel the sense of my being being exposed and not being afraid to just be.
There is something that my teacher has said over and over in class that has got me thinking about: improv on life. He says: no matter what we do, it’s ALWAYS RIGHT in class. To never doubt if your doing or not doing something right or wrong. Improv is a complete ego-free/judgment free zone. This made me think: would if we treated life in the same regard? Would if we knew everything we said or did was ‘right’? There is no real ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. It’s the strings of society that deems certain behaviors or words are ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. I know saying there is no real wrong, some may think, ‘so, I can speed, steal, be ‘mean’ and it be ‘ok’?’. There is one ‘rule’ of thought that streams with all religions and ways of thinking:
The Golden Rule: One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
Seems easy enough. Right? With this golden rule of thinking, you can literally live a life of improv. As, everything you do in life is correct. No need to second judge what your doing or saying. Doesn’t that sound refreshing, liberating, and…easy? Just remember that all you do IS right! Notice what shifts in your world happen when you change your thinking.
Just a little tid bit that had me thinking!
BigLove to ALL!
