title: AW Episode 30: Exorcism of Belief Entities
aired: 3/15/2015
artists/guests: Jennifer Moon, Robert Watkins
venue: KCHUNG

description: The Basic Principles of The Revolution asks us to embrace formlessness and question how we identify. Maintaining a fixed form or identity, an ultimate expression or manifestation of a belief entity, besides creating resistance to the inevitable flow of all that is, becomes an oppressive tool to appraise self and other agents and institutions within this system of hierarchies and binaries. In turn, these belief entities, values, and systems of appraisal have their own identities, further compounding belief upon belief until we are so removed from ourselves, others, and the world around us that we can no longer see and connect on a psychic heart level beyond our multi-layers of identities. But apart from these social constructions of identity, which extends to feelings, situations, and objects, is there a persisting essence within each of us that makes us unique? What are the conditions under which a person at one time and a person at another time can be said to be the same person, enduring through time despite superficial modifications? Who are we beyond the belief entities that utilize our bodies to realize themselves in the physical world? Exploring the possibilities of an inherent aura or a sense of self can get abstract real quick. Perhaps, once we completely exorcise all belief entities from our being, maybe only then will we discover who we really are. Robert's identity playlist.
