To find true freedom, we must connect to our power. To find power, we must experience what it is to move something, change something, create something from nothing. To find power, we connect to the God within us. Literally. And we find a soul-shaking power, when we move something (or someone) we’ve felt powerless to move before. . . It is well-known that the #1 fear of people is consistently public speaking (with the #2 being death) - simple proof that we are all afraid of each other. If we want to feel powerful and free, we must all have space to move others. . . Except how do we do that? Human beings are funny in that no one really wants to be moved by someone who wants to move them🧐, i.e., no one wants to be manipulated or persuaded. It makes this whole task of moving people a little difficult 😆. . . In my personal development & dance practice, especially with @kristinsudeikisdance , I’ve learned that we do not need to teach ourselves (or others) how to “move others” but instead give ourselves the space to be moved and then be fully seen while being moved. It is inherently moving to watch someone be moved, to be let in on someone’s secret. When someone is laughing or crying or in pain in front of us, we cannot help but be moved. ✨It is worth repeating that, to find true freedom, we must connect to our power to MOVE PEOPLE.✨ . . To create an ever expanding ball of power around us (feeling our own power & feeling our power to have others’ feel their power): we can practice being fully seen while being moved by those in front of us. That is, to have someone else feel their power (which inherently has us feel our power), be moved BY them ☺️. What a grand circle. . . .

GALLIM AT THE JOYCE | INSIDE THE PROCESS "This process has been thrilling... to research and question the boundaries of a physical and emotional essence of a human. We’ve begun to create personal stories and ways to connect with tapping into different realms of fantasies and realities. I’ve always dreamed of performing at @thejoycetheater, and for the opportunity to share and create conversations with such a huge community!" - Haley Sung (@haleysung), Gallim Dancer . . .

✨✨One of my greatest reflections in the last month is that everything I thought I was seeking because I didn’t have it, I’ve been seeking because I’ve always had it. Heard Alan Watts say something like this 1000x but I didn’t get it. I think he has a video that says “you are what you keep seeking” if you’re familiar. When I heard him speak about it, I got it intellectually but not in my bones you know. I went home over the holidays and suddenly saw everything differently - like I saw all the love where there was a misrepresentation of pain (like the love disappeared just because there was some pain). And then I started thinking about what I’m creating. How could I want to create something I’ve never had? I thought I wanted to create unconditional love , and intimate familial spaces , and risk-taking, and a utopic world because those are things I’ve never experienced but it is only because I’ve already experienced all of it and all of it so strongly that I am creating all of this. Its like I am creating out of fullness, not emptiness. Or creating from reality vs. my delusions. It feels different. Feels good. ✨✨ .
