When you dance, dance from the inside out.
Your heart knows the song … the lift and fall of the music touches you. The drum beats within you.
Listen to your own song … sing your joy and even your sorrow. Hear the rhythm of your soul. Awaken to who you are called to be … hear the melody of your life.
When the ceremonial dancers at our annual pow wow gathering begin the steps of their dance, they move in a close group, stepping to the drums, picking up the rhythm first with their hearts, then their minds, then their bodies.
They move slowly in the sacred circle of light … and life … and movement … and they flatten the grasses of the circle as they move outward. Slowly, with many steps, the ceremony continues. And the circle becomes larger, so that the dancers gradually move with their arms as well as their feet.
So the circle of your life becomes larger, as you dance. As you pick up the rhythm of the drums of your thoughts … of your gifts … of the words the Creator speaks to your heart.
Consider this week’s quote:
This week, as we gather with our family, our band, our tribe, we have traveled from our home in Colorado, to the North Woods of the Great Lakes. Our ancestors call us back to the home of our heart. We connect with others whose hearts are close to ours.
We bring gifts to give … and we receive the gifts of others. We share joy and laughter and the foods of our youth … we move in the rhythms of those who have passed before us.
We bring you in our hearts to this sacred gathering … on this joyful journey. And when we dance, we dance with love … we dance from our hearts, in connection with yours.
Listen … in the quiet of your moments. In that silence you will hear the rhythm of the drums of your soul.
As you listen, you may find yourself walking your own path. Have you explored your Journey? It’s more than a program you ‘take.’ It’s a handbook for your life … your story, written in the words of your heart …truly a guided experience to discover … You! Connect, or reconnect … feel your steps, feel the rhythm deep inside you.
Dance from the inside out …
Live on Purpose … Change the World!
