QUEEN NEFERTITI

nefertiti_2.jpg

QUEEN NEFERTITI
Egyptians
viewed their universe
as a complete duality of
male and female.
 Giving balance and order to all things
was the female deity,
 Maat,
symbol of cosmic harmony
by whose rules
the Pharaoh must govern…

X

…And women are indeed portrayed in a very public way
alongside men at every level of society,
 from co-ordinating ritual events to undertaking manual work.
One woman steering a cargo ship even reprimands
the man who brings her a meal with the words,
 ‘Don’t obstruct my face while I am putting to shore’
(the ancient version of that familiar conversation
‘get out of my way whilst I’m doing something important’)…

X

WOMEN,
HOW DO YOU SHAPE
YOUR WORDS
WHEN
YOU
ARE
ANGRY?

x

WITH PASSIVE VERBS
THAT GENTLY SLIDE
WITH POETIC SWEETNESS WHICH LEANS BACKWARD
INTO  ETHER?

x

WITH ACTIVE VERBS
THAT ARE CAREFULLY HONED SWORDS
 THAT NAILS YOUR  FIERCE TRUTH
 INTO THE EARTH?

x

WITH PASSIVE/AGGRESSIVE VERBS
THAT ARE RIDDLES AND DELIVERED AS
 A STACCATO  OF VOODOO NEEDLES
(RATATATAT)
AS YOU BLITHELY SMILE
AND
SAY “ALL IS FINE” AKA “GET OUT OF MY FACE”?

TELLING THE TRUTH

x

WOMEN AND LANGUAGE:
POWERFUL
 DYNAMIC
 IMPROVISATION
AS
WE
EVOLVE/REVOLVE
INTO
OUR HEIGHT,
OUR BREADTH
AND
OUR DEPTH
OF
OUR
OWN
INTERIOR
IMAGINATION,
SEA
AND
UNIVERSE.

x

OUR TRUE NORTH.

 

x

KNOWING AND TELLING YOUR TRUTH
IS ABOUT
DISCLOSING,
REVEALING
AND
BECOMING KNOWN AS A PRESENCE.

X

IT IS NOT TELLING WHAT YOU THINK SOME ONE ELSE’S TRUTH IS.

X

THE ACTION WELCOMES DIALOGUE,
CIVIL DISCOURSE
AND
INSPIRES
OTHERS TO BREAK OPEN.

x

 
TELLING THE TRUTH WITH ACTIVE VERBS
IS BREATHING WITH SOUL.
RHYTHM.
PURE MUSIC.
PURE MUSIC THAT CALLS OUT THE FIRST LIGHT,
THE FIRE
AND
THE LIFE FORCE
WITHIN
ALL
HUMANITY.

“I and Thou.”

x

THE TRUTH, THE SIMPLY STATED TRUTH,
BREAKS OPEN HEARTS OF STONE,
DECIPHERS  HIDDEN CODES,
UNFOLDS AND ACCEPTS
THE GOSPEL AND  SHADES AND VEILS
OF YOUR HEARTFIRE.

x

TELLING YOUR TRUTH

STEERS AWAY FROM DEFENSIVENESS,
TURNS AWAY FROM  JUDGMENTAL,
RIGID, UNYIELDING,
SEVERE, STRICT
AND
INFLEXIBLE
BLACK OR WHITE
STANCES.

x

TELLING YOUR TRUTH

CREATES
CONFIDENCE
IN
LISTENING
AND
RESPECTING  DIVERSE
AND
MULTIPLE POINTS OF VIEW.

X

YOUR LIFE BECOMES A GARDEN,
A KALEIDOSCOPE
AND AN EXPLORATION,
AN UNWINDING PATHWAY
TO NEW WORLDS OF EXPERIENCE,
KNOWLEDGE,
REFINED SENSES
AND
SENSUALITY.

x

 

TELLING THE TRUTH

x

NO LOCKS.
NO SHACKLES- SEEN AND/OR UNSEEN.
NO FEAR.
NO SHAME.

x

TELLING THE TRUTH

x

KEEPING OUR GRACE.
KEEPING OUR ELEGANCE.
KEEPING OUR BEAUTY.
KEEPING OUR MYSTERY.

x

TELLING THE TRUTH

x

UPHOLDING OUR COMPASSION.
UPHOLDING OUR INTEGRITY.
UPHOLDING OUR RESPECT.
UPHOLDING OUR TRUST.

x

TELLING THE TRUTH

x

KNOWING WHO CARES
KNOWING WHO WATCHES YOUR BACK
KNOWING WHO IS ON YOUR SIDE
KNOWING WHO CAN CALL YOU OUT

x

TELLING THE TRUTH

x

UNFOLDING OUR LOVE.
UNFOLDING OUR ADVENTURE.
UNFOLDING OUR VISION
. UNFOLDING OUR FREEDOM.

x

LOVING
YOURSELF
SO
YOU
CAN
LOVE
YOUR
LOVER
WITH
PASSIONATE RESPECT,
COMPASSIONATE TRUST,
SENSUAL DIGNITY
AND
LUSTY GRACE.
x

TELLING THE TRUTH

x

It is scary to rewire your brain/body to disclose your known dignity.
Unbury it,
Dig for it.
Find it.
Name it.
Breathe into it.

 x

 

Telling the truth is 

YOUR CROWN,
 YOUR ROOTS
AND
YOUR HEAVEN.

x

 
Telling your truth is a must, a necessity
and
an essential launch into uncharted worlds.

x

 
No masks.

x

 

Living your truth is your annunciation.

X

The annunciation is your improvised proclamation of your creation-
your uncoiling life into beauty,
stillness, boundlessness
and
joyous grace
 

x

TELLING THE TRUTH

 

x

WONDER WOMAN LANGUAGE
Love x Love,
x C

x

The Gambino language from my beloved neighborhood, Little Italy :
“Tell me!
East or the Hudson?
Break your knees or your face?
I will take care of you!”
(double entendre)
 

x

CHOICES

x

When call and response
with someone you care for is
balanced
it is a
luxurious living lullaby,
an improvisational adventure.

x

Those who uphold/practice

“I and Thou”

are  free
to be
all the things we are.

X

Nothing has be masked,
leashed
and
kept captive in a maze without exits-
including anger.

x

Anger, unexpressed, will devour  love with gloved fists.

x

Passive anger will suffocate and suction the life out of love.

x

 
Passive/aggressive anger will disorient
and
splinter love.

x

Raging anger will murder love
and
has a thirst for blood
and
dominance over
the body and soul
of who
they claim to love.

x

Anger delivered as clear, calm water
will nourish and cleanse love.

x

x
