The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness. Therfore we have to take a leap of faith and dive into the unknown.
All things in the world come from being. And being comes from non-being. The contact with our inner truth grows by practising selfless movement. Then our innate source of knowledge will be readable like a book.
Evolution depends on self-discipline. We are the biggest obstacles to our own growth. It is much easier to fight with the world than with our own nature.
Your dance doens’t express what you want, it expresses what you are. This is why perfectioning techniques will not add the magical component to your expression unless you truely feel your movement.
Each moment you do a movement is a brand-new moment, and you are a brand-new you. Your entire existence will be taken in consideration every single movement.
If you want to dance, you must allow the amour of fear to be stripped from you, piece by piece, until you are naked before the world.
The main source of our internal opposition, the source of resitant thoughts, all reasons why you hesitate or do a movement incompletly it the splits within our consciousness.
Very often you discover pain within yourself while you dance. It is a sign that you discovered a fractional part of your consciousness. These moments are the perfect chance to reconnect those broken parts. Thats one of many reasons why dancing is so extremly powerful. Dancing is proactive healing.
When you dance you start to enter a relationship with something transcendental which seems to has it’s own life and will. Like any other relationship, the power, health and longevity of this relationship has to do with their best interests being accommodated for, not just your own.
If you want to dance from your soul… If you want to express what you really feel… You have to take the risk of beeing you.
Creative consciousness will create the movement you do want, thoughtful control will avoid the movement you don’t want.
If you are unable to act in a relaxed and natural way because of lack self-consciousness or mental restraint your dance becomes a byproduct of your environment. Your dance will be nothing more than the leftover after you adapted to all external expectations.
Dancing is no longer a leisure time luxury for the human race. It is a necessity.
To the degree that people deny their freedom to move, they will hate those who take their freedom to move.
The problem is not that people give away their chance learn how to dance. The problem is that people think they have no talent to dance in fhe first place.
We often ask ourselves: “What can i do to fix this broken world?” We are putting alot of effort in searching for solutions for this in the outside. Instead we need to ask ourselves: “What can i do to fix myself?”. Thats what the world really needs: People that like themselves regardless of the circumstances. The medicine we need is inside our hearts.
How does a person dance that judges a movement? They will dance from a place of fear. A judmental person will be constantly busy avoiding movement that is considered as “ugly”. And by doing this, the person tries to be free in a narrow cage.
Don’t expect too much from yourself when you dance. For you to move in the best way you can, with what you know and have at this moment from where you are. That is enough.
We are raised to listen to authorities that tell us what we should do. We believe in this so deep, that we even dance like there is an invisible authority judging our movement wether it is done correctly or not. Instead we should dance the way we want and with passion. Only then our journey of beeing our true self starts.
We are all broken people somehow. You can fix only a little bit in one lifetime. Don’t hate yourself to be broken. Better let yourself be broken open and dance.
The moment you start to dance you are on a journey into uncharted waters.
Every movement is beautiful when its done with confidence.
Dancing people do not cause harm to others. Dancing people are in alignment with themselves and enjoy their own, so they don’t feel separation.
In order to dance you have to stop resisting to feel your emotions. Then they don’t hurt as badly and you are liberated.
The journey of a dancer is so difficult, that it requires true love to continue moving forward. True love will soon confront you with your greatest fear.
Dancing is the mastership of resistance.
This world has been declared a war against feeling. Therefore, the dance floor is a battlefield on which true human integrity is defended.
Many people ask me for excesises where they can dance with a partner. I recommed everyone to first learn to dance with themselves before longing for others.
Dancing is brutal self honesty. It will not let you do spiritual bypassing, because it is impossible to dance from your true self and fake yourself at the same time.
The only choreography you should dance is the one that comes from your own heart.
I you want to create movement that comes truely from your heart, you have to look at your inner resistance to dance from the heart, before you can create from your inner truth.
There is nothing more beautiful then witnessing a human expressing his pure and innocent soul through a dance. It can make you cry because it touches your own pureness within.
You can see someone dancing, but their dance is not visible to the eyes. True dancing can only be felt.
The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can’t have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I’d rather not be in a cage. I’d rather be dead. Freedom is worth paying for.
Freedom is not deliverance. You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don’t ever count on having both at once. Freedom is never given; it is won. We must be willing to pay a price for freedom. Freedom lies in being bold. If you’re not ready to die for it, put the word ‘freedom’ out of your vocabulary. There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires. For in the end, freedom is a personal and lonely battle; and one faces down fears of today so that those of tomorrow might be engaged. Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes.
The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free. A man can be himself only so long as he is alone, and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom, for it is only when he is alone that he is really free. Freedom is also the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err. Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.
Freedom is a possession of inestimable value. Freedom is an occupied space which must be reoccupied every day.
But what is liberty without wisdom, and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness, without tuition or restraint. A hungry man is not a free man.
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom. Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.
Freedom to dance
Dancing is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. A good dancer lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants. It is about to not intervene and interfere movement that spontaneusly arises from the inside and wants to happen. In order to connect to the inborn wisdom of our body we have to learn to let go.
The body allows enormous energies to flow through it. It is the softest of all things, yet it is the most powerful thing humans carry within themselves. This power is experienced intuitively and will protect us from harm until the end of our days.
