At the heart of the community’s manifesto, there is this fundamental question. Essentially, the question boils down to a two-fold choice path. To be or not to be. Shakespeare put it on the lips of Prince Hamlet in terms of life or death. Metaphorically speaking, the answer to the Who Am I question brings each of us to the edge of choosing. To be: this is the place of acknowledging where we are, where we come from and how we have gotten here. It is the great intersection of what has been shaping us since our birth and even before that: the child we have been, our ancestors, the family and the community we have growing up in, the schools we have attended or not, our religious and cultural background, our relationship with nature and the cosmic realm, and so on. This is the place where we realise that “no man is an island”, that connection is what truly matters giving us wings and sometimes leaving us heartbroken and in grief. It is the place where we learn that we do not know anything, we do not own anything. Where we learn to let it go and accept. The place where we contribute to the collective consciousness and where we are co-responsible for this present, building the legacy we want to leave behind. Not to be: again metaphorically, this is the chair in an empty room; the sofa in front of a TV screen; any way we find to numb ourselves (busyness of any kind, including work and multiple studies; relationships not to be alone; substance abuse of any kind, including food; unkindness; hectic “use & waste” lifestyle, including relationships, and you name it). The point is that years go by like snapping two fingers. When the music is over, what dance have you been engaged into, if any? Music and dance are awesome metaphors for who we want to be, for the Life we want to live. No matter where you come from, geographically and in life, who you want to be is always your own choice. And Now is always the good moment. To find your answer to the big question, pick your music and dance your way.
