Role Play

"Shakespeare was absolutely right - all the world's a stage and you are on it!
It means we all have many roles to play. That means never identify with your role, or you will get very stuck and very stressed. You are not what you do. Your job, position, vocation are just roles. Play the role, never think you are the role - this is the art of making life creative and fun.
All great actors dislike being typecast and seen to be good for one particular type of character or role. There is no role you cannot play, if you really want to play it. Which is the same as saying there is nothing you cannot do, if you really want to do it...
You can even be a Queen or King. You may not have a throne or a court of advisors, but you can create and express all the qualities and behaviours of a 'royal' character - dignity, respect, humility, caring...and many more.
Be a 'royal', sit on your inner throne with dignity and self respect, and you will see many other royal qualities emerge through your character. And then...you will feel royal. "

  5. It is true, in one's own kingdom or queendom, one is king. To be a king or what is similar, in a society of people performing various roles, one is walking with all the Cardinal Virtues. Kingship; oh what a ship, is always possible...

  9. Yes Surjit, individuals like us, and especially those who are at Wisdom, each collectively is witnessing the world with love, peace, and more. So much we can do, beginning with self, and more onward, upward, and forward, from where a point so in need of decision to share, vital and valuable information, even through blogging. Let's go for it, the way we can, and we choose to.

  11. Wonderful thoughts have been expressed in the post. Shakespeare's words are truly valuable:
    "All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players:
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts".
    Indeed, we all play our parts and move out from the stage when darkness ascends upon us. What we have to do is fit into our roles. As you have written: "There is no role you cannot play..."

  14. Biologically there are those who are Royals. Then, character wise, an individual can choose to be. What a wonderful stage, we are on.

  18. Hi Surjit,

    It is indeed important to be able to sit on our own inner throne with dignity and self respect! Such an important message. Many material thrones outside yearn to catch our attention. Diverting us from the very much more important kindom that we should chair deep within.

    Have a Blessed Weekend, Surjit!

  20. To be sitting on a throne with self-respect and more, is to first know thyself. Who Am I.

  21. Yes Zubli Zainordin, you are right.The most important task before we people is to know our ownself.
    Thanks for sharing your noble thoughts.
    God bless.

  22. Surjit, you surely know the vastest corner within this universe, for each of us to explore and experience improvements, is self. We can prefer to begin with self-image, as one shared by Maxwell Maltz. Then, what are potentials within this corner, right up to continuously moving up the levels of kingship, inclusive self-dignity and more...

  24. Wisdom! I love this interaction. I am learning. In addition, I understand change very well. I have witnessed many a husband beliefs that when the wife changes, improvements can occur to the better. Similarly, many a wife beliefs the opposite is so. While each is waiting for these changes by the other side, nothing much happening toward what both initially desire. Ditto for leaders and followers, boss and workers, and more. Thus, each does enjoy the initiative for self improvements, continuous indeed. Then, you and me, we shall know individuals begin rising to kingship within her or his kingdom, every moment of our total life on earth. Wow!

  25. Yes Zubli Zainordin,we all wish and wait for others to change but is does not happen very often.The result...strained relations on both sides. We cannot change others including our children.All we can do is to change ourselves.
    "Managing others require skill;
    Controlling your own self reqires inner strength." (Tao)

  26. Thanks for the nice post and a reminder about what our various roles are. Life and work is a stage, and sometimes we have to realise that at the end of the day, who we truly are matters. Not the masks nor the actions that we put on superficially for the world to see.

    Great one!

  28. The best part of role playing we are each portraying is the drama we share together. Preferably in total happiness...
