Today we reflect on yesterday's live orchestration and dance performance of Shen Yun (self ascribed as: China Before [oppressive] Communism. We review the meaning of the performance and its importance, message and everlasting impact in contrast to the survive vs. thrive mentality we ever-increasingly live by. The real quest to exercise tolerance, compassion and love (for one another) even in the wake of destructive forces, the other side of humanity that's continually hellbent on greed, division and ruination. Let this be the gentle reminder that each of our affect and actions hold consequences, not only for ourselves, but most importantly also influence others. Ultimately behavior does shape outcome and the higher road is not always a painless one. However, a deep level of vulnerability is both beautiful as it is bountiful and provides a much more prosporous path to travel as together we work towards a better world for us all.
