It’s time to dance.
It’s time to let it all go, open it all up and let it all out. There’s no right and no wrong, there’s just you in the dark and the rhythm that flows through you, there’s just you in the moment when your mind is blank, your emotions are wild and the music courses through your veins like a rush of power.
THIS … it is celebration. It is primal, all encompassing joy. It’s is a moment of pure truth, that requires nothing of you but the willingness to embrace it. Your body moves in ways you didn’t know it could. It responds to the music. The rhythm calls and you answer. It’s a conversation without words. It’s beauty without definition and it’s life. It doesn’t require justification, it doesn’t have consequences. It’s just there.
This is not a place where fear lives. Fear holds you back. Fear inhibits. Fear keeps you still. Fear detracts from everything. Fear holds you separate from the joy and the rhythm, from the expression of freedom that flows around you. Fear takes the dark and makes it unsafe instead of filled with possibility. Fear is everything else. It’s the demand for logic and answers and consequences and these things only. Fear tells you that if you can’t explain it, it’s not real. Fear is the demand for control and an unwillingness to let yourself go JUST FOR ONE SECOND and see what happens.
But do you know what? Life is like dance. It’s where participation is necessary – not just necessary but FUNDAMENTAL. It’s where standing on the sidelines or fighting for control gets you nowhere. Because we get the most out of life, when we surrender to it, to what we feel, to how we see, to our truth because it means that we are TRUE to who we are and when we do that, we begin to fulfill our destiny.
Your dance may be different to my dance. Yours might be gentle and mine might be fierce but the truth is that they are what they are and they’re as beautiful and bright and perfect as you are when you surrender to them.
Dance recognises that need in you to let go, to unleash, to unburden. It forces you to recognise your body, to appreciate it and use it. When you truly let you and get into the groove, there is no comparison, no ‘if only I was more …‘ because you’re exactly right and phenomenally beautiful exactly as you are because in that moment, it all comes together and you see in a crazy kaleidoscope way, that nobody can pull off your moves more perfectly than you and that … it BOOSTS you, elevates you and makes you more than you knew you were before.
It’s a reminder in the everyday humdrum of that rhythm that takes your heart, your soul and your body and makes them ONE and that all it takes is a moment of surrender to find that euphoria again, because keep down inside you, the music continues to play.
