Thoughtful Thursday: Bohemian Rhapsody

I saw Bohemian Rhapsody. It was the perfect portrayal of what it looks like when spirit infuses soul’s doing, and what happens when we lose sight of that work. The way Spirit infused an entire 1.5 billion Live Aid 1985 audience through the body and soul of Freddie Mercury, who led “the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music,” just goes to show the power of soul when fully expressed. Apparently $127million was raised by Live Aid (https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/live-aid-concert).

Sadly, Freddie was swallowed up by “darker influences,” when he betrayed soul – when he was diverted from soul’s journey through betrayal by another, and nature (disease, natural disasters, etc.). The movie also shows how our Gift or soul image is often better sensed, and emerges for us, after we have transformed tragic/traumatic circumstances.

We don’t have to become a superstar to express soul, but we do need to uncover our soul image. This is the work: “In what way has life constructed me that I may contribute most effectively to the transformation of the world?” (https://www.purposeguides.org/) How do I show up more fully? What is mine to do, and how is it supportive of Life on Earth, and contributing to a “soulcentric life-sustaining society” (Joanna Macy)?

#SayItLikeItIs: In her two years of graduate work (2016-2018), Kaytlyn learned the art of bearing witness to an unheard collection of stories about human dignity. She first explored how she could apply a spiritual care therapeutic model to how farmers relate to their land. Realizing a greater cultural narrative was implicated, she then studied the impact of collective memory on cultural narratives and the pervasive "don't care" attitudinal construct towards Earth and Her landscapes.
