Defying #gravity — I Slipped a What?
March 4, 2014
After the movie Gravity, I’m sure many people have been imagining what the earth would be like if there were no gravity. I know for myself, after slipping a disk from carrying a 75 lb. root ball across the yard to replant a tree, I wish I could go back in time and make my yard effortlessly weight-withdrawn. Unfortunately, it’s heating and ice packs and muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories for the next two weeks.
The very popular musical #Wicked also has a song in it called “Defying Gravity.” Elphaba, the leading character learns to fly, taking away the debilitating power of the earth’s gravity—metaphorically, the ironic mean-spirited earthlings harboring hate and ridicule. Elphaba moves forward into the sky on her broom, embracing her own power to defy what, for us, is natural—gravity. “I’m through accepting limits. “Cause someone says they’re so!” she cries, as she rises from the ground and off of the stage. She, in turn, saves many people and her friends in the process. Wicked is definitely one of the best-written musicals I’ve ever seen. I went back three times in different cities. Each time it was better, and I was able to uncover more of the metaphors of each character.
When we defy the elements of the earth, we actually do take on our own, God-given power. But the only way to do this is to separate ourselves from the power of the earth—the gravity. I have found that this process is only meditation. We become the observer of our life and the workings of our imbedding neural pathways of the brain. Elemental and lasting change begins by rising above our problems and entering into a place where gravity (the powers of the earth) no longer exists. We stand on the bridge of change, overlooking the temptation, ridicule, and pain of the earth body, simply by becoming an observer.
