Week Eight: Physical Practice (Part One)
Happy Tuesday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily. We’re taking our weekly work further with access to my handwritten notes for each audio chapter, the glossary gigantum and … a new nominee for our digital wall.
Have a question about a phrase you’ve heard? Let us know and we’ll translate!
Doing Nothing; an opportunity to let go of the daily doings that dominate life. A release of watching, guarding, planning, reviewing, judging, expecting, and leading …
To simply exist in the now.
Doing nothing is not naptime. It’s not meditation. It’s not a chance to go into a happy place. There is no better or worse when our goal is to exist.
There is just the truth of now. The taste of living as a human be-ing.
As we learn societal expectations our Daily Body develops ways to protect and care for us in the face of life’s unknowns.
The Daily Body is constantly doing. Always running.
Engaging our intellect to watch, to judge, to doubt to use filters and guards that remove us from the taste of living.
That remove us from the taste of now.
When we release the doings of “DB & The Int,” we allow the world of everythings around us to ignite our instruments and pull us forward into the adventurous unknown.
