Priests are Not Performers

Priests are Not Performers



Bordeaux a boy yay you know when I was growing up we went to a lot of performances in my family I mean we went I remember to see Pearlie I remember going to see Hansel and Gretel later on as a teenager I had an older cousin and she would take me to to jazz shows you know she go to a quaint little restaurant or yeah sometimes an upscale restaurant and we would enjoy live jazz she was a jazz buff and that got me you know all ready to be a teenager and you know a twenty-something and so I went to a truckload of concerts growing up reggae concerts and Prince concert Def Jam concert you know I went to a lot a lot of live shows I loved it right I loved it a performance is is it is a deep experience and I really really have a high value in appreciation for performances but the reason why I'm sharing this is because within Orisha lifestyle especially within the priesthoods of orissa lifestyle there there is there's a lot of singing there's a lot of chanting there's a lot of drumming there's a lot of dancing and it's really easy for people to slip out of priestly duties and fall into performance duties right they go from being priests to be performers and manat even necessarily know and this matters so much because the intention of a performer is to impress people right and so they're doing more and more and more and more and more to be impressive whereas a priest is aiming at impacting people's lives right very very different and this is something that interestingly I internalized even as a as a corporate trainer and as a counselor I was a part of a training team that was you know operating within very high-end corporate environment and you know it's it's it's it's it's a it's fast-paced right and everything is is results-driven so there's there's a there's a temptation to fall deeply into performance mode right well we're just trying to get out come out come out come out come and we're doing everything by speed and efficiency right well part of what I engineered there was a process of slowing it down we had a process a policy in the process called connection before content which basically said before we begin any engagement if it was a focus group or a c-level meeting meaning chief executive whatever officer chief you know any of the c-level chief level leadership or a large workshop with ninety eight hundred people right any of those engagements would start with a personal connection and we would make a connection between the participants or we would allow the participants to make a personal connection with the theme or the content that we were going to discuss at that time but either way was always connection before content and let me tell you it did the trick it brought people into the right vibration to be impacted by the work that we were going to do and and the value of this is that people will go along with the flow right they will do the procedure step one two three four five six seven as fast as you have them do it but they don't really care about how much you know until they know how deeply you care right and so it's important especially for us as as priests that we are constantly facilitating this inside-out approach where we're allowing people to make this connection to to themselves to their internal voice in there they're in an inward sense of self okay a performer is constantly saying look at me look at how well I chant look at how well I draw look at how well I did look at how well I sing right a priest is not doing that a priest is doing the opposite look at how well you show up look at all the great resources you have here look at this web magnificent track record that you've built up here look at all the different ways that you you are unique and special and highly qualified and right but that's what the priest is trying to do the priest is trying to bring you into contact with your own inner power because I can't go with you everywhere I can't just keep giving you stuff I've got to show you those pathways and where to discover what you're really carrying with you so that you can always go there and will and you can bring forward and emanate the things that you chose in the prenatal State and so because of that I want to help you make the distinction between performance and priesthood our board why boy you bullsháá
