Please don't postpone your #dance for later...
I am still living through the delight of my dance on Friday night.
About five years ago, my right #hip began to hurt at night. In May last year, I began to limp a little. In January, at last, I visited doctors. I learned that because of a congenital defect in the structure of the hip joints they had worn out much earlier than you would expect and that I should look into getting my right hip joint replaced.
On Friday night, I danced practically without any physical restrictions. There were some in my head, of course. Because of the hip pain I never dance now without thinking at all, not restraining myself and just trusting all the #body parts indiscriminately...
I have done a lot to make Friday night's #experience possible - mineral supplements, Ayurvedic #medicine, weight loss, a rather strict diet, reducing the use of the hip in general, physiotherapy and daily morning exercises for forty minutes or so... It's totally worth it! I hardly feel any pain or discomfort.
On Friday night at least they were definitely not there. And I am telling you - it felt like a true #bliss!
I bathed in my dance and it seemed as if a consistent message was coming from its depths:
If you have a body, let it dance.
If nothing hurts - let the body dance in its entierty!
Don't miss the #chance. Don't postpone for later. You just have to do it right now - include the whole body, every part of it, every cell. .
You body is not an #eternal resource. And that's OK, there's nothing tragic about it - nothing lasts forever. But while you have it, don't ignore it, open it, let it express its potential. Please. It's worth it.
It's a #journey.
It's a buzz.
What else? I am running out of words. I'm exhausted. The body doesn't get exhausted when it's fully plugged into the #flow...
What an an exceptional evening.
What a poignant sense of #gratitude... tears in my eyes. For my #teacher, Bodhi. For this group. For my partners - those who have the #courage to partner with me and can meet me fully in the dance.
