My entire Acting Class turned towards me with love, light, expectation, and openness. My heart was beating throughout my body.
The class was standing, frozen, as if time stood still. I was the only one moving to the music, allowing my body to throb, pulsate, and shift with each note and vibration.
And my teacher said, “Complete the Sentence Cora…As I make my way up this Hill…”
And I began, at first on the surface level, “As I make my way up this Hill, I stop and take in the beauty. I want to hug you. I see how amazing you are….blah, blah, blah…”
And then IT happened.
Suddenly, I dropped down into my Core, out of my Mental Level, and into the place of Authentic Expression of my Truth, my Wholeness, my Light, and yes, my Dark. My body started to buzz and vibrate as the words poured out of me like flowing water from a geyser.
I’m not even sure what I said. I hardly remember…but it sounded something like this…
“As I make my way up this hill, I am AWAKENING, I am not going back to sleep, I am climbing, searching, living my Truth Out Loud and I don’t give a shit about what anyone else thinks of me or my path. I am ALIVE and of Sacred Service. And this whole white picket fence and American Dream Bull Shit, it doesn’t work for me. It’s not my journey. So I’m not going to live a lie. I’m just going to be me. I just want to be fully me.”
And at this point tears were streaming down my face. I fell to my knees, and said,
“I just want to go Home.”
Dropping down into my Core, my Truth, and speaking from there was Healing, Overwhelming, Transformational, and more than anything else, that Voice, my Authentic Voice, led me Home.
The Prodigal Daughter, both Light and Dark, Lost and Found.
