I don't know if there is any actors here...

I am an actress and I was wondering if enlightement is possible when you are in that profession.

I always felt it helps me to understand other people, it expandes my mind. But lately I am having to act an scene where I am kidnaped and raped.

So I have to focus on very negative emotions of fear, rage... and I have to feel it for real to make the audience believe it too.

At the same time I am reading books which says that in order to be truly enlightened you need to get ride of all negative emotions.

Then... without any negative emotion I couldnt be an actress because any story is just about just happiness.

On the other side... I am very happy with what I do, and of course the emotions I express I feel it for real but arent actually something I have on my real life. So it doesnt get stock inside of me. Also it makes me realize about how unreal our negative emotions are.

I don't know if someone here can understand that it may sound weird if you never acted professionally.

I will be happy to hear answers from anyone , actor or not!

Blessings for all of you

Quite the opposite. I think it can be cathartic. Just leave it behind you when you aren't acting.

It might cause a temporary rise in blood pressure, though. And you might want to say CANCEL, CANCEL after a negative session of acting.

Yes! I thought about it too!

Sometimes scripts are full of very very bad words!
So... does it give a marc to the ethers? In my script I have to say phrases like wishing some people will die and hard things like that.

I was just thinking about it the other day. It would be very necessary to say CANCEL!


Since I read that in Linda's book I stoped saying ' tomorrow I am gonna be sleepy' or ' It wont go well I cant do it'
And I am surprise about the powerfull effect it has.

Lots of things went way better in my life just because I said with conviction ' I think we will do it amazing' and it happened.

I think that is something Aries people naturally have. That kind of conviction. I am not Aries but I admire that from them.

Sorry, going back to the topic, yes I think I should say cancel after a hard scene.
But I think also sad scenes are beautifull because somehow it represents all aspects of being human.

When we casually say things thinking nothing of it, our subconscious believes it. When acting, I think our subconscious knows the difference. Actors are a special breed.

You can mentally say CANCEL, CANCEL.
