These are some of the notes that I used to teach the Avatarism section of the “Vivation/Flow/Avatarism Superhero Training.” It was a really special event oranized by Paul Hughes of Vivation Int., with the amazing Teafaerie and Thom of Flowtemple, in 2010.
I hope this gives you some reality on Avatarism and how to manifest it in the game of your life.
“AVATARISM CAN TURN FANTASY INTO ACTION” - Alexander Polinsky
Say “yes!” (loud)
You are perfect, whole, and free to up-level.
Welcome home…….I assert that we are made in the image of the evolving hero. On the brink of greatness, and capable of so much awesome, one can hardly contain the babble of bubbling possibilities present in every moment for ones such as us. We can ferment the culture of awesome in our lives, on the real world platform, for each other, and for the good of the planet. We are unlimited in our capacity for skill collecting, compassion, ambition, and loving.
Stagnation is death, we were all made to move. You have to move! Wherever we are in the time line of our adventure, we can unlock the door to something stimulating, up-leveling, and ultimately, life changing. Moving the body is essential to health. Yoga, flow arts, dance, coitus, all good for the body. Move and flow everyday to stay in your body. Your body is your spaceship, it needs maintenance my friends.
Be a conscious consumer. Inquire and learn about where your food and goods come from. If you consume junk, you are junk. It’s as simple as that. What you consume, you become. BOOKS, MOVIES, TV, FOODS, DRINKS, MEDICINES, AND EVEN FRIENDS. If these things that you consume are not upholding you and helping you create the highest vision you have for yourself, you need to trade up for something better.
The game of Avatarism is about finding creative ways to up-level your real world platform character. There are rewards, you get achievement points in the form of respect, love, friendship, great sex, fame, and superpowers. You cannot help but to be more awesome, when you do this work.
Consciously create your character.
Costume yourself in the clothes, ethics, essence, and style, of your highest Avatar self. If who you have been is not working, change! It’s not hard, its a game. Play with your ability to learn new things and met new people AS this enhanced character. Add skills to your arsenal, execute coordinated acts of Awesome, up-level your character steadily, and with passion. Re-create yourself as a hero, use your new powers to help the world, and your creative acts of heroism may live forever.
“AVATARISM, the squeaky back door to Enlightenment.”
“Control your destiny 42% more, Guaranteed.” -Bob Funky “The Meta-Sapian”
SAVING/HEALING THE HUMAN RACE IS A HUGE TASK!
Help them by improving yourself. The poor, angst riddled, sarcastic, frazzled, urban masses, wet wired to copy all they see an hear, have little inkling of their ability to change themselves or discern the workable data from the glut available to us from the interwebs, and the media. We have been at the mercy of degenerate samples, and inferior programming all our lives. But doncha’ cry, We can invent a new more excellent self, and use the self as the vessel for acts of incredible awesome. We can embody this thing into realization.
Embrace the chaos, for from chaos comes the building blocks to a brilliantly organized system.-Alexander Polinsky
AVATARISM, A KIND OF “SKILL SOUP” THAT YOU MAKE WITH RARE INGREDIENTS COLLECTED FROM SOURCES THAT YOU FIND THROUGH SEEKING, INSTEAD OF JUST COPYING WHATEVER COMES BY. MAYBE YOU WEREN’T CONSCIOUS ENOUGH TO REALIZE THE DANGER OF LETTING OTHERS RANDOMLY PROGRAM YOUR BIO COMPUTER, BUT NOW…….YOU ARE AWAKE.
“No longer awkward, and heavy, but light, and ready to move.”-Martha Growham
The true, global, citizen, taking the best parts, from all the great paths, would come to some combination that suited hir. As all of those religions, schools of thought, or styles of living have evolved, mutated, and erred, so do we. We will mirror the evolution of all great works of art and become more beautiful and coordinated as we go. We have the right, and ability, to evolve our spirituality and our character over time, And in doing so, create a unique road to greatness, and excellence.
“Hone your own flow”-Dan Gordon Levitt
“Ferment your own culture.”-iRev. Alexander Polinsky
Learn the secret identity of your tribe’s members, the inner super hero. Tell your group what you want to be, listen and be of service with that knowledge. When you forget who you are, or fall on your face, there will be the ones who can tell you who you are becoming, so you may start from there, not get back into the same old thing that brought you here to this particular breaking point. There are non player characters who will warn you and direct you to go back where you have come from. Run from those ones. They are the Gorgons, the terrible and seductive ones who mean to drain your spirit, peck at your uniqueness till it is gone, and keep you the same as you were, to comfort themselves! To truly uphold another, you must be on your true path, and be willing to receive that same blessing/guidance.
Your word is your wand.
Examine all indwelling thought, and outward projected speech with the light of truth. Use your word to direct your action towards positive creativity. What you say about your world and your fellow avatars on the path, reverberates for longer than we know. Watch your communications for sarcasm, for the child inside does not understand sarcasm. Watch your communications for negativity (its literally addictive), Be excellent with your word, have full knowledge of it’s upholding power, and it’s destructive power.
Fake it till you make it.
No human ever sprang fully formed from their mother’s womb, and no avatar was fully embodied spontaniously. These adjustments to character, habitual thought process, and skill set happen in stages. The important thing is to be open to the phenomenon of up-leveling. You can up-level fast or slow, but you have to believe in your own capacity to change and grow. This takes confidence.
The game of Avatarism is being created now. By all of us. We are the music makers and the dreamers of dreams. We are the ones we have been waiting for. “There,” is place you have come from…….“Here,” is the door……fling it open, and start your glorious run.
It’s going to be really fun.
You are Avatar.
Avatarism is an inquiry into the nature of character itself. An open source game/philosophy for conscious character creation
