RuPaul. “GuRu”, Dey Street, 2019.
I think that we can all agree that RuPaul is an amazing person. Here he shares his ideas bout building the kind of life that each of us wants to have and doing so from the inside. “GuRu” is also a beautiful collection of some 80 photographs. “You’re born naked and the rest is drag” is Ru’s motto and we see how he has used it to his own best advantage. He shares what he knows about the concepts of mind, body, and spirit and because of his own unique perspective, RuPaul has broken “the shackles of self-imposed limitations”. He brings us a “daily practice that requires diligence and touchstones to keep you walking in the sunshine of the spirit.” It is necessary to look beyond the identity that was given to each of us if we want to enter a hidden world of possibilities.
We know that throughout the history of humans on this planet, there’ve always been shamans, seers, and mediums who have the ability to interpret both high and low frequencies and remind us to look beyond the surface for the truth of who we really are. Ru tells us that “who we really are is an extension of the power that created the universe (aka: God in drag) and that most people are not willing to hear or accept that.
That is what has made RuPaul a success and not just in the worlds of entertainment and show business. He has succeeded in all aspects of life but especially in navigating the emotional traps that exist in our souls.
