(IrnMind Mettle Monday) (Royalty Season ~ August 31/2020)

/// Tawnshi fair Townspeople, Ladies & Djentlemen ~ To IrnMind Mettle Monday🤘🏿 The most #Brutiful way to Engage /w the start of your week!

(I) *Brutiful Quality Quotation:

“Death, meditation, sex & trauma, in serving as great portals, share a common element. They are all potential catalysts for profound surrender”

~In an Unspoken Voice

My first thought after reading this passage was ~ “that’s so Metal” ~ & after more pensive elaborative rehearsal, I was struck by the profundity of the sentence.

Surrender is where our spirits my be refined, where we may forge a mind of mettle, it is how we may tear down, rebuild & transcend.

Surrender allows us to release ourselves to something beyond & above ~ a force /w more wisdom than ourselves, our faith, our anchor.

Surrender is not defeat, it is letting go of that which no longer serves our greatest purpose, shedding whatever stronghold is keeping us from the calling in our hearts.

(II) Modern Renaissance Immersion:

Give yourself permission to be creative | Ethan Hawke

~ Art is not a luxury, it is sustenance ~

(Short Transcript Tasting)

“It’s a thing that worries me sometimes whenever you talk about creativity, because it can have this kind of feel that it’s just nice, you know, or it’s warm or it’s something pleasant. It’s not. It’s vital. It’s the way we heal each other. In singing our song, in telling our story, in inviting you to say, “Hey, listen to me, and I’ll listen to you,” we’re starting a dialogue.

And when you do that, this healing happens, and we come out of our corners, and we start to witness each other’s common humanity. We start to assert it. And when we do that, really good things happen.

So, if you want to help your community, if you want to help your family, if you want to help your friends, you have to express yourself. And to express yourself, you have to know yourself. It’s actually super easy. You just have to follow your love. There is no path. There’s no path till you walk it, and you have to be willing to play the fool.

So don’t read the book that you should read, read the book you want to read. Don’t listen to the music that you used to like. Take some time to listen to some new music. Take some time to talk to somebody that you don’t normally talk to. I guarantee, if you do that, you will feel foolish. That’s the point. Play the fool.”

A fool who persists in his folly will become wise ~William Blake

A life lived through your calling, utilizing your gifts in service to the world is the foundation of fulfillment.

I have found that being willing to fail, & to look like a madman in the social light, has lead to a deeper sense of peace /w expression of my genuine being & expansion of my own creative gifts.

It also leads to those sweet moments of unscripted vulnerability in which we may draw closer to those in communitas /w us & appreciate the beauty of the imperfection & humility that makes us all human.

(III) Modern Renaissance Cinema:

THE BOWL | A film by Peter McKinnon

This stunning five minute cinematic experience lead to deeper reflection on the beauty of a simple “Wabi ~ Sabi” bowl, & beyond that, through perseverance & imagination ~ hope for humanity.

What it symbolizes for me is the humble & brutiful imperfections of not only material objects, but also human beings. Recognizing the impermanence of life & that the richness that is cultivated through roots of deep relationships is where our happiness truly springs from.
