From a Dancer's Perspective: My Break Method Journey

Before Break Method:



Living as if shackled to the expectations of those around me, I had become a ghost in my existence, merely a reflection of a much greater narrative that was never entirely my own. In the theaters of my life, others were directors and choreograohers, and I but an artist performing endlessly for the elusive standing ovation of approval and acceptance. From early on and growing up a dancer, the seeds were sown—a relentless pursuit for others' endorsement, a crippling fear of discord, and an underlying alienation from my intrinsic self. In this reality, I settled into a life of mere reactivity, a play where my true experiences and emotions were perfunctorily suppressed beneath a script I hadn't written. I didn't think my opinion mattered at all.



After Break Method:



That was until I encountered the Break Method 4 years ago. It was akin to an archaeological excavation of my internal landscape, systematically unearthing the childhood relics that had unwittingly shackled my identity to a persona crafted for me by others of who I should be. The Break Method's framework guided me in decoding my inner narratives, confronting disruptive patterns, and discerning the subconscious rhythms and voices to which I had been involuntarily swaying and dancing to.



The transformation was profound. No longer a mere reactor to external stimuli, I became a deliberate actor in my own drama. With newfound lucidity, I have learned how to recapture my words and reclaimed my voice, not to dissent but to delineate my existence respectfully. The Break Method empowered me to navigate life with newfound purpose and honesty, expressing my genuine feelings and forging connections without pretense.



Through this lens of personal revelation, I cast a new gaze upon the figure of Jesus, historically portrayed and manipulated by some institutions as an emblem of unattainable virtue—used to cast ongoing feelings of shame and guilt rather than exemplify a life of forgiveness, liberty, and unconditional love which he showed by dying on the cross for the WHOLE world.



The transformative power of the Break Method allowed me to discern how, much like my personal narrative, the narrative of Jesus had been co-opted. I saw how institutions had twisted His story, shaping it into a tool for control rather than a source of inspiration. Instead of empowering individuals with the principles of compassion and redemption, His message was used to impose silence, command obedience, and cultivate a garden of dependency and remorse.



Now, with clarity, I could differentiate between the use of religious iconography as a mechanism of subjugation and its true essence as a beacon of hope for all human relationships. I recognized the divergent paths where, on one hand, there laid a distortion of Jesus' teachings, weaponizing them for power, and on the other hand, there existed a pure wellspring of his love and teachings, meant to inspire and uplift, spreading a message of kindness and spiritual emancipation.



For me, the lessons of the Break Method extended beyond self-awareness; they became a lens through which the manipulation of spiritual narratives became obvious. Here, I was truly free. Now, I live inspired by a Jesus unchained from dogma, one who embodies forgiveness, freedom, and unconditional love. My dialogue with the world had changed, just as the historical dialogue about Jesus ought to change, revealing not a narrative of control, but one of liberation.
