Day Sixty-Eight (68): Friday, May 7th, 2010
68) Positive Thoughts Have Healing Power
Believers in the Law of Attraction argue that miracle cures, which doctors and science cannot explain, do, in fact, occur, They assert that it is nothing short of arrogant for us to believe that we humans know everything and that the power of healing isn’t possible without our intervention with drugs and medical treatments. People in dire situations such as facing battle with a terminal disease often feel helpless and want to do something. Encouraging them to have positive thoughts and focus on the best-case scenario certainly offers a better option than dwelling on the worst-case scenario.
Took Fredy to the Rubin Museum today . . .
My friend, Cindy Sibilsky and her group, The Dharma Players, presented a performance art piece at the museum. Fredy and I were a bit early. During the performance I photographed as much as I could and here are the photographs.
This Friday THE DHARMA PLAYERS (co-founded by Cindy Sibilsky and Duncan Elder) are proud to present: “THE WRATHFUL ENERGIES” part 3 in a series of 4 based on Jean Claude Van Itallie’s “THE TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD: OR HOW NOT TO DO IT AGAIN”
Place: Rubin Museum of Art (17th street and 7th ave)
all 14th st subways(A,C,E,1,2,3, 4,5,6,F,V)
Time/Date: Friday, May 7th-8pm(sharp!!)show (arrive at 7pm/7:30)
Cost: FREE(Museum free from 7-10pm, come early, check out the art!)
“The Wrathful Energies” explores the darker side of the Bardo(Tibetan Buddhist’s Aferlife)
as the “Dead One” confronts his or her deepest fears, illusions, attachments, and adversions. If you have been able to see the past 2 performances, this one kicks it up a notch, and if you have not yet seen the Bardo come to life-this show is not to be missed!!!
See the Dharma Players website for past and future shows, and a deeper exploration into the “Wrathful Energies”, dramatic exploration, ferocious Gods mask-making and more!
It was a very slow shutter speed as to not use flash. Since I didn’t have a tri-pod, the effect is interesting. I rather like it. Fredy took a few shots, too. I do think he has a steadier hand.
Not sure about the rest of this day. Since we technically saw IRON MAN II this morning, we slept late and this was the only thing we did.
Love, Light & Laughter,
