To be, or not to be” is the opening phrase of a soliloquy spoken by Prince Hamlet in the so-called “nunnery scene” of William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. Act III,. One of my all-time favourite movies with Mel Gibson aside from Mozart. How far is it that were all playing a part in this play called life? We all interact in our role often unknown to ourselves, of that role which is called on. The interaction or lack of this interaction effects everyone around us, much like the energy of the universe. The way we interact with ourselves, families and friends then the outside world has a connective tissue of energy that binds us all in the cosmos of life, yet we struggle for our self-identity. In this, we often find ourselves lost. Striving to reconnect with ourselves, those around and to the nonsense the world makes, at this time. We can get caught up in the energy that swells around chaos and animosity without realizing were becoming the villains in our own play. We place blocks in front of ourselves, and yearn to become who we once were. Remember when you were small, finding friends at parks, playing the games and having fun, because you, cared. Not just about ourselves but others and those around you. We all can create, laugh, cry, love and destroy. Yet in all of this we forget the play, the roles and its intention, in all we are, and who we have become.
We have seemed to have lost ourselves. But you know the beauty in all that? If we close our eyes and feel the love of the universe, give it a try for a moment, and allow the child inside, the memory we created as children to flourish even for a brief moment.
By doing this, we forget all those things that have seemed to weigh us down. By going within or looking inside ourselves, we can once again see the play that we created for ourselves before coming to this physical world. We can recreate the character, find new roles, and become those children again. When our eyes are closed, its dark and were all the same colour, it’s our experiences that sets aside from each other. Hold onto those around you, hold them close and remember to share, love, laugh, cry, hug and hold. Know this what I tell you all, we were never born, we always were.
Lights of energy, the universal knowingness and existence. Playing the game in the physical theatre called life. To be or not to be, there is no separation of who you and I are. We are born in and we are born out, no death, no end. Just a journey we all share in this play. If you don’t like the character you chose to be, then become another, a super hero to yourself or others. And allow no one to make you the villain. Shine your light and be that superhero, the mother, father, friend, brother, sister, lover. Be to yourself and not to be, for others. Because this is your life journey, your souls experience and make it the best play in the Universe. See you on the other side, if not before then. In love and light…Gordon
