“There is a dance only you can do, that exists only in you, here and now, always changing, always true. Are you willing to listen with fascination? If you are it will deliver you unto the self you have always dreamed you could be. This is a promise.” GABRIELLE ROTH
One thing that Flowing is teaching me is how to follow our own path by letting our own feet create that very path by moving on it, by searching for the empty space. And in that dance sometimes we don’t meet anybody for days and sometimes we spend parts of the journey with somebody else as our paths cross; sometimes we go through the valleys we’ve heard about from those who walked them before us, and sometimes we find the uncharted territory of our own life and destiny.
One thing that Staccato is teaching me is how important communication is for our own well being on so many levels. Communication with ourselves, keeping the dialogue open and alive with our own self – checking in with how am I, what do I need, what do I miss, what do I love… Communicating those answers with others, and asking them those questions. Communicating what is real and true and now as much as possible even if it is communicating how I am not here and now and not real and true. And for me, communicating with others is again for my own benefit and health, for my own boundaries, for my own joy and for my own sense of peace.
One thing that Chaos is teaching me is about how one thing can be so many things. How what is blue to me can be red to you. How what is right for me can be wrong to you, how what is old for me can be new to you, how what is nothing to me can be everything to you. Somehow in order to co-create something original I need to surrender to be that nothing and everything, that blue and red, that right and wrong at the same time and in the same place and this blows my mind and this breaks my heart and something new can be born from this chaos.
One thing that Lyrical is teaching me is how to expand as this is the most expansive rhythm for me. It stretches from my toes to my fingertips. It stretches from my inside to the outside. It stretches my imagination. It stretches my face often into a smile. It stretches from Flowing to Stillness, as it has space for bits and pieces of each of these rhythms. It stretches from me to you and those around us. It stretches our attention into our awareness.
One thing that Stillness is teaching me is sometimes it teaches by showing me what Stillness isn’t. It is unmasking the beliefs that I don’t really believe in but sometimes follow. It is a striptease of all the things that separate our body from our spirit, one human being from another, earth from heaven, wound from medicine. It brings us to face our own wisdom and kneel down in front of our infinity.
Wishing you a happy new 2018, a year full of experience and exploration of yourself and the world, of the inhale and exhale, a year where we keep practicing love.
With love, Silvija
