the moment of crisis

“There is a Japanese word, ‘sat’. A theatre director once described the meaning of this word to me as the moment right before a performer walks onstage when the heart is racing with the knowledge that anything could happen, the moment right before creation, the moment of crisis. This is very close to the Sanskrit word ‘satya’, meaning truth. It is this moment of crisis, this moment of truth that we have the opportunity to confront our fear and to feel the most alive.”
