A Note From DreamStar

I’ve been thinking alot lately about the lines between good and evil – yes, lines, not line.  I don’t think there’s one, I don’t think they’re undeniably lucid, and I don’t think they need to define us.  Of course, we’re told differently aren’t we?  From birth we’re told we must fall on one side of this line:  we must be good.  But it doesn’t stop there.  We are told not only what we must be, but how to accomplish this state of being – how to be “good.”  We are (dare I say it) programmed to understand what constitutes good, and more dangerously, what constitutes evil.  We consider ourselves the former, and undoubtedly, label anyone or any act outside of “good’s” narrow realm the latter.  I beg you to see the flaw in this thinking.  I beg you to question these lines – to question everything.  Plunging into this unknown, into a space that is only questions and no answers is frightening, but revealing, necessary.  This thinking isn’t easy, this abandonment of the known isn’t comforting.  But it can be grand.  It’s more than self-revelation, it’s more than a single journal entry, or blog post, or solitary piece of choreography.  It’s a life-long realization – all of your loves, your failed relationships, your chances, your downfalls, your lifetime of choreography – they all are begging the questions, erasing the lines, redefining the good’s and the evil’s.  And the grandness of this, I hope, cannot be questioned.

So, dear readers, this week I’m afraid I’m asking a little more of you – Ask the questions you’ve been afraid to hear the answers to.  Ask the questions that don’t have an answer.  Redefine the good and the evil until the lines between vanish, leaving (I’m afraid to say it) more questions.  Ask them through creative expression – through dance, through art – and see what happens.
