Ra’s Words of Wisdom
Most people think the line is what’s written in the Rave I’Ching. I’m somebody that forever refers to life as a movie and exhorts people to enjoy the entertainment. The lines are a script; haven’t you noticed? They’re a script. They are so terribly accurate. It is a script that is laid out. And it is a script that is laid out for the general roles or aspects of roles that every line represents in the general construction of the character as a whole. It’s a play, as the Bard loved to say, but it’s true, this is what it is. Our task is not to be suckered into the play. Our task is to be an audience, be the passenger, and be able to see it for what it is.
The lines are not what the line is about. All that description that is there is simply giving you the script of the generic application, but how different it will be underneath. Don’t think that all these lines are the same. Don’t think that just because you’ve got the 13.1 and your friend has the 13.1, that you’ve got the line— you don’t. It looks like it, but only on the surface, because under the underneath it’s different the way you’re motivated, the way they’re motivated. The cognitive root, the sense, in that sense, that attunes you correctly to the way in which you can bring the realization of that particular character to the surface.
It’s like the role of Hamlet. I’ve seen many people play Hamlet, maybe seven or eight different actors in my lifetime. The script is the same. The lines don’t change, unless you’ve got some weirdo trying to mess around with Shakespeare, the lines don’t change. But the actors playing those lines are very different. The line is really about getting into the script. Have you ever noticed that if you watch the transits long enough you begin to see that this is a rolling script out there? It’s a story. It’s a pattern. It’s what we are of and what we are moving through.
And when you’re looking at your lines, begin to see that you’re a novice at this point, a true beginner. You’ve been given a part to play. This is your incarnation and you don’t know how to play it. You end up getting pulled along through the general frame of what that role is about. But you never bring your magic to it. The magic that you bring to a role is like the great actor or actress that brings some magic to a role that people cannot forget; that they bring something different.
