#consciousness, dance of life, connection

Published November 17, 2015

The music and dancing in my bedroom take me away to that world where duality doesn’t exist. I twirl faster and reach with my arms higher and higher in the air, until I feel the sky. A goddess of love dances along with me. She embraces me, smiles and whispers in my ear. Yes, let that body move and dance to the rhythm of your feelings. Don’t ever stop, not even when you get older. My ten-year-old being dances as much as she can.

Dance to the rhythm of your feelings

The dance of love in the bedroom takes me away to the world where duality doesn’t exist. I move faster and feel the depth, until I feel the sky. The love of my life moves along with me, he embraces me, smiles and whispers in my ear. Yes, let that body move to the rhythm of your feelings. Don’t ever stop, not even when you are older.

My twenty-year-old being moves in the dance of love, as much as she can. My children take me away to a world where duality doesn’t exist. I move to the rhythm of Cinderella, Pocahontas and the Little Mermaid, until I feel the sky. The children embrace me en whisper in my ear. Yes, mom, keep believing in fairytales, even when you are older.

My thirty-year-old being believes in fairytales, as much as she can. The Ashtanga Vinyasa-practice in the yoga studio takes me away to the world where duality doesn’t exist. I move to the rhythm of the cleansing breath, higher and deeper, until I feel the sky. My yoga teacher moves along with me and whispers in my ear. Yes, let that body move and dance to the rhythm of the breath. Don’t ever stop, not even when you are older.

My forty-year-old being dances to the rhythm of the breath, as much as she can. My grandmother of 101 years old in the nursing home takes me away to the world where duality doesn’t exist. We dance to the rhythm of silence, until I feel the sky. An angel moves in silence, he embraces me and whispers in my ear. Yes, let the silence dance. Don’t ever stop, not even when you are older.

My forty-seven-year-old being explores the wisdom of non-duality, as much as she can.

Consciousness
Non-duality means that everything is one energy, one consciousness. Everything happens naturally. Due to the fact that we as humans have self-awareness, we see ourselves as a separate ‘me’ and that is where the problem is created. It seems as if we are individuals with a free will, but that’s an illusion. We are working on perpetuating our self-image on a daily basis and we live in fear of the future and frustration from the past. Liberation can come from seeing through that ‘I’-illusion. We live in times where the vision of non-duality is scientifically supported. In neuro-science it has been discovered that there is no such thing as free will and quantum physics refers to the idea that everything comes forth from one source. All is one, everything is connected, everything is love. The meetings in Melbourne hosted by non-duality teacher Sailor Bob, that I frequently attend, remind me of this truth. We have always been peace and love, so what we already are is not something that we can ever ‘find’.

Connection
Once people thought that the earth was flat. Now we know the real story. Likewise, in future there will also be no more doubt about who we really are. As nature is, so are we. The sun can shine, it can rain, there may be thunder, and it can be cloudy. Al these different characteristics are reflected in human nature. But you don’t see the sun and the clouds fighting one another. Then why do people fight? For the simple reason that we have forgotten that we are nature and therefore all connected. Watching little children, you feel that they haven’t forgotten it yet; they are completely connected to their nature. By the time we are around three years old, we start to forget it and come to believe in the illusion that most people around us believe in as well. We are told: you are your name, your shape, your thoughts, your beliefs, your behavior, your emotions, and more of those concepts. While we could also be teaching our kids: you are a child of the light and you are perfect as you are. Or actually this is what our babies would like to tell us.

Welcome, child of love. One day your body and your thoughts will leave this world and you will return home, for you truly are an immortal being of light with infinite possibilities.
