The thoughts that flow through your mind when you say a particular word or chunk of words that you like or hate will be directly reflected on your point of view of the issue. For an actor playing in a Shakespeare piece, for example, you say a line such as “To lie in the Cold Obstruction and to rot.” You could just say it with monotone, but if you want some inflection and life in the line. Think about your point of view with Prison. What’s your history with it. You point of view will make the line breath through every soul that witnesses this story. The Things you find Meaningful. Your Fears.The Issues that upset you, and ultimately the Things you Love in life. This is as close as it gets to filming someones thoughts. To apprehend your point of views and someone else’s is the single best way to come to an agreement with someone. Every single one of these topics listed above I’ve had a historical connection with. For an actor or story teller, this is gold. So I give you an example and I encourage those reading this to make your own. You will learn a lot about yourself and the more you know about yourself the more you can give. In conclusion, when you allow your light to shine, the light within other will transpire to shine brighter as well.
