Soul of the Dancer

Sharing one of my favorites šŸ™‚

THE DANCER An Excerpt From The Wanderer by Khalil Gibran

Once there came to the court of the Prince of Birkasha a dancer and her musicians. And she was admitted to the court. And she danced to the music of the flute, the lute, and the zither.

She danced the dance of flames and fire, and the dance of swords and spears; she danced the dance of stars and the dance of space, and then she danced the dance of flowers in the wind.

When she had finished, she approached the prince and bowed her body before him. The prince bade her to come nearer, and said unto her, “Beautiful woman, daughter of grace and delight, whence comes your art? And how is it that you command all the elements in your rhythms and your rhymes?”

And the dancer came near and bowed her body again and said, “Gracious majesty, I know not the answer to your questionings. Only this I know: The philosopher soul dwells within his head, the poets soul dwells within his heart, the singers soul dwells about his throat, but the soul of the dancer abides in all her body.

A few lines I had written on similar thoughts… on the Dance and the Dancer.

How can you separate the dancer from the dance?

For there is no one without the other
Body and soul united in spirit.
When the two meet there emerges energy
In unison of the cohesive oneness
The heart knows what the mind speaks
And mind tells what the heart wants…

Embedded is the dance in a dancer
Embalmed is the dancer in the dance.

SOUL TO SOUL

Soul to soul
Heart to heart
Speaketh one to another

I am another you
One soul to another
I am an extension
Of your own love of Life

I seek your blessings
I seek your knowledge
I seek your wisdom
I seek your strength

Ingrained in the sands of time
You have experience of life in living
That I have none
I begin with what you give

Your thoughts your intentions
Your belief and faith
Interweave in mine
To carve this new life

An imprint of you, I am
As much as the souls before.

Creativity & Humility

Creativity is innate potential.

Deeply entwined in humility

In every realisation of potential infinite

Creation manifests itself time and again.

So much to know and understand

So much to learn and discover

So much to explore and fathom

Lifetimes are never enough

Such is the potential of the infinitum.

Creativity is embedded and enmeshed with emotions. To create is to connect with the core and the depth of the being.

Savvy

In the flow of creation

Is the acknowledgement

Of the letting go

In the depth of creation

There is only pure potential

Where I, Me or Myself

Ego plays ceases to exist.

Expressions are conceived

In the potentials intention

They will find purpose

In the very strength of intention

That elevates consciousness

Beyond pride and prestige

Beyond fame and fortune.

As creativity tunes in to sense

The subtlest of emotion.

In the shaping and the blending

From thoughts to action

Creativity and humility

Go hand in hand in sublimity.

Have you any experience on the interconnects of creativity and humility? Do care to share.

Subtlety & Grace of Transpersonal Love

Communion: A boundless bond An artwork by Savvy Raj

When one reaches a realm where every thought trangresses the personal self and senses are transmuted to infinity.

Where there are no boundaries of feeling bound, where every connection is a give and the sharing extends much beyond the taking with unconditional love and grace in every action.

Where being in touch with oneā€™s most conscious self, there are no disappointments,failures, stress or pressure of approvals or disapproval.

Where the body mind and spirit feels alive to every moment that life has to offerā€¦in a nonjudgmental space that is acknowledging of one another as they are…

There is an acknowledgement of Subtlety and Grace of Transpersonal Love.

Universally this stream of unconditional love is flowing in all beings and its just a matter of time and energy to bring this to conscious awareness.

And I reshare this post thanks to the lovely quote share by my dear friend Ashok Subarao who thoughfully sends inspiring quotes and pictures for me to write and paint on .

This quote share by William Blake resonated deeply with what I had written on Transpersonal Love . So I simply had to incorporate it here and what was interesting to me to note was how the image colours of the quote you sent and matched so beautifully with my painting drawn back in time .

Thank you for your kind shares once again .

Every day I love you

To dance ‘the love of my life’....

‘To dance is to converse with your soul in oneness’

Savvy

Well I have just sat down to write supercharged after dancing an improvised version of Rumba to one of my favourite songs ‘Every day I love you by Boyzone. Yes I love to dance and I willing and wholeheartedly share my love and passion for it with the world.

Well who ever told you about dancing by numbers has perhaps never learned to dance from the heart!šŸ˜‰ Beyond the number game … yes we may begin with counting steps though I find a lot of people like me who prefered to learn with rhythms of quicks and slows. I prefer to associate dancing with the heart beats and the breath of life itself . I also find that when taught this way the dance gets closely connected with the authenticity of you and your movements as you are.

After all dancing is being you!

The art of dance can introduce you to yourself and beckons you to know your limitless potential.
