this is an astounding statement

…You have to feel…

so often I have heard

the words, “I just want to die”

yes it is an expression

usually said when a person is at the end of their rope

they have lost hope or, I can’t take it anymore,

I’ve had enough….These moments pass, but while they are being lived,everything inside feels chaotic, jumbled and turned around.  The stomach is unsettled, the mood is “dark”  When I was still actively working my practice, I would ask..”when is the last time you danced?”  More often than not, the answer was vague, they didn’t recall it was so long ago, or it would be a straight out, “I don’t dance”      Dancing is an art form, it is a form of expression, and yes, to some it comes more easily then it does for others.

To be a professional dancer, one must have a passion for the working of the body and mind, in a continuous need,desire to perform, to be able to use your body in every conceivable way to express movement, fluid and flowing, using every muscle in your body, your mind focused so that not a miniscule of energy is anywhere else but in that moment.

Our bodies are important in the managing of our health and our well-being.  Dance, in whatever form it takes in your life is a necessity in maintaining a balance between the “yin” and “”yang”,  negative and positive in life.  You cannot have one without the other.

Even if you just reach and stretch your arms up into the sky above

or out to touch the walls on either side of you, do it with the intent to stretch out as far as you can, then slowly release, exhaling as you do, it well be such an exhilarating feeling,  your body will go “wow”..

Stretching is an easy way to begin bringing more activity into your life, it is with slow small steps that we increase our awareness of the body.

Our bodies are our very own, our personal shrine for all that is divine within us.

Practice doing a dance move every day.  Don’t let it slip away, do it.

Your body will be with you till the very end.  Open your eyes to the need it has to survive and carry you through till you are ready to let go.

Forever and Always.       …Namaste   –    Oyashikiri

Bonjour , hallo..13th

I’m not going to add to this… for today, I will meditate and cogitate on  this one.  It is a big lesson and one that I have not  mastered yet.  It is another beautiful day, therefore, it is a perfect day to reflect on why I find this lesson so difficult to follow through on.  Intellectually I understand … hmmm is my mind being lazy again?

Perhaps this will be a tad bit more motivational…  the kitty picture has me wanting to go find a sunny spot to curl up on a cushion and go back to sleep, or grab a short nap.

Yes this is better I might not manage a stretch like that…. but I can sure do my own version of a good long stretch.. hmmm just thinking about it has me motivated to go look for my exercise mat.

Have a good day dear friend, drink lots of water, eat your crunchy veggies, and see you soon,  Smile it is contagious.
