if you are struggling in your art, it may mean your creativity does not trust you. how many times has it begged you to be free (out of love), and how many times have you told it no (out of fear.) nothing will flow until you heal this relationship. — nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)

Life is meant to be experienced kinesthetically, not just mentally. You were born with a multitude of senses, be intimate with them. Everything around you is vibrating and alive, be alive with it. Be aware of the sounds and the smells. Every thought and every sensation. Whatever arises, just witness it. Don’t get consumed by it. Don’t let it sweep you away. Take refuge in direct experience. Allow everything to unfold as it is, naturally and uncontrived. There is a vividness to life that lies beyond the limits of your mind. — Loren Frohning (via avacado-fleur)

When we took Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure” into a maximum security woman’s prison on the West Side…there’s a scene there where a young woman is told by a very powerful official that “If you sleep with me, I will pardon your brother. And if you don’t sleep with me, I’ll execute him.” And he leaves the stage. And this character, Isabel, turned out to the audience and said: “To whom should I complain?” And a woman in the audience shouted: “The Police!” And then she looked right at that woman and said: “If I did relate this, who would believe me?” And the woman answered back, “No one, girl.” And it was astonishing because not only was it an amazing sense of connection between the audience and the actress, but you also realized that this was a kind of an historical lesson in theater reception. That’s what must have happened at The Globe. These soliloquies were not simply monologues that people spoke, they were call and response to the audience. And you realized that vibrancy, that that sense of connectedness is not only what makes theater great in prisons, it’s what makes theater great, period. — Oskar Eustis on ArtBeat Nation (he told the same story on Charlie Rose)

You can’t spend the rest of your life being afraid of people rejecting you, and you have to start by not rejecting yourself, you don’t deserve it. From now on, people can either accept you for who you are or they can fuck off. — Kester, My Mad Fat Diary. (via inpubes)
