The Heart Aroused

“The voice emerges literally from the body as a representation of our inner world. It carries our experience from the past, our hopes and fears for the future, and the emotional resonance of the moment.

If it carries none of these, it must be a masked voice, and having muted the voice, anyone listening knows intuitively we are not all there.

Whether or not we try to tell the truth, the very act of speech is courageous because no matter what we say, we are revealed.”
