Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free. ~ RumiLife is a dance. Not a performance. An opportunity to interact, to respond, to improvise. We want life to be perfect, but it isn't. It's messy; filled with dirty dishes, bathtub rings, garden weeds, spare tires, pets. Most of the time, we simply move through it without recognizing how beautiful every step, every movement is. We pause to notice when it shines gloriously or creates an incredible distraction. This dance called life requires us to regard it in every single awesome moment, through joy, pain, tension, learning, blood. Every. Single. Awesome. Moment.
