Bound, Unbound, Boundless
1. Initiation: The Joker is Wild Carelessly choose some music wild. Feel its spirit; let it move you. Get up and flail around— dance wildly! Let you go. Experience the jest from head to toe.
2. Orientation of the Fool Step outside, yourself—literally. Walk with nature. Find a tree! Get quiet; let nature embrace. Hear the songbirds sing. Feel the sun’s warmth; let it touch you. Now “just be.” Let your true inner nature shine through.
3. Fools’ School 102 Learn from the masters of play: Spend time with a child. Let the child guide you. Get down on your hands and knees and see through the child what the child sees. Give in to the sense of joy and wonderment. This is truly one of life’s greatest gifts—the purity of a child at play. Return and recreate your creative space. Make yours the eyes of a Jester. Don’t waste a minute! Leap into action—it’s shape-shifting for the coming attraction. Now, move it or lose it; those objects and things. Add color, create space. Rearrange at a Jester’s fast pace. As Jesters and Jokers, you rose to your goal! You smiled and accepted with a tuck and a roll. Your flexible selves, you wore your capes proudly. You danced and you laughed and expressed yourselves loudly. Welcome fellow Jesters, here are the keys to the kingdom— unbound, boundless new happiness and freedom!
