Erased (Geni)

Did you know that ancient Chinese calligraphers would change their names halfway through their careers, so they could start over again as someone else?
Erasing yourself is a sweet dream. Don´t you think? Wouldn´t it be incredible to erase everything and enjoy a new life? New decisions…and therefore new paths. New things to learn. Imagine if you could erase your mistakes and lost time. Imagine if you could occupy a different space. A different body. To have different dreams. Different lovers. Different dead.
Would anyone loan out their own life in exchange for someone else’s? Even for a few hours?
Probably your first impulse is to say NO, but think a second. Imagine the experience. A few hours to be another person, with another life. Duplicate your experimental knowledge. Release the attachment. Put aside what you believe, killing the ego. Life multiplies knowledge and wisdom. Wouldnt this be an addictive practice?
Wake up! Get up and choose what shoes you’d like to wear. Step into another body. Lie down with his wife, with her husband. See their furtive look from the inside. Do it in a new body every day. Do not settle for being just what you are. PAINT.
ART IS THE PLACE WHERE IMAGINATION AND REALITY COME TOGETHER AND CREATE SOMETHING NEW.
