“In the end, it´s a matter of FAITH IN LIFE – knowing that it takes care of us and it loves us, if we allow it. Knowing we are WORTH its care and love.
The problem is very few of us TRUST LIFE. We are raised to believe Life is against us, not WITH US; we are raised to believe there is a scarcity that justifies looking at other fellow humans as competition (it´s me or THEM getting the cake´s slice); we are raised to believe that Life is a mean stepmother we have to protect ourselves from.
-Watch out! Beware of the witch – you never know what it will throw at you.
Who would imagine Oriental Dance – at its HEART – takes us exactly to that TRUSTing place where we can BE OURSELVES and allow the LIFE FLOW to take care of us? Without that state of PERMISSION and SELF WORTH, this dance (or Joy) cannot happen. ”
