When this phrase pops up for me my deep self gets excited saying “Yes, that’s it!”
This phrase is so powerful because it contains a key code that reminds me of what is real.
We can laugh from different places in our bodies.
There is avoidant laughter, and there is deep transformational laughter.
There is nervous, useless, meaningless laughter and this is honest, powerful, evocative laughter.
The phrase Monstrous Comedy is not referring to useless, avoidant laughter. It evokes something very different. It evokes a source of eternal power, revelry, and presence.
It feels almost like a paradoxical phrase, but it is not actually. I like the definition of comedy as a “benign violation”. This phrase rings of that – comedy connotes safety (making it benign), whereas monsters are more commonly categorized as violations.
When placed together, these two words Monstrous Comedy open up a powerful dreaming portal for me and I use this to create powerful experiences.
When I act from my place of Monstrous Comedy I create powerful, ridiculous, absolutely “insane” performances which have to be seen to be believed, and even when seen may still not be believed. Comedy so triggering it may need to be watched twice to get all the jokes.
Tonight we embark on Week 2 of the Dark Lightning Performances.
