Dance of Life
according to Prof. Nadia Kevan
Dance of Life
To enter the world my heart dreams of,
thought and action are not enough,
So I dance –
Dance takes me beyond words,
dancing I shower blessings on this life,
dancing I summon the Spirits to guide me
Dancing I let go of all right and wrong
Dancing I have no concern of being good or not good enough,
Dancing I am whole,
Dancing I let go of wanting,
I surrender to the gods of dance,
then something dances me……
Dissolving boundaries between inner and outer worlds
time stands still,
space is limitless,
there is only now -
a perfect balance between gravity and levity,
a sense of eternity,
Passion, my love for life flows through every vein of my body,
I am alive
I am one with all.
Out of those sharp-edged, split-off fragments of my being
the abundant tapestry of life emerges,
wounds begin to heal,
my body becomes the temple it was born to be,
a body of light.
Dancing I am close to Soul,
mine, yours, nature’s soul,
I let God into my world -
into the very centre of my being,
where there is stillness and dance.
This is a state of grace –
a sense of being blessed,
an indescribably gift.
Heaven is on earth.
We should realize in a vivid and revolutionary sense that we are not in our bodies but our bodies are in us.
