Purification through dance
There are different forms of celebration.
A celebration to express and manifest gratitude for the devine, an act of remembrance or a celebration of existence itself. Another form of celebration is to let go of the past, to walk forward, with the knowledge that life is eternal.
If you truly want to celebrate then you do not just drink and drug to “party”. If the party is related to something that is holy to YOU, the celebration might be fullfilling. Body, mind and soul might be nourished. When you take enough time just for yourself to go deep down and see what you brought. How do you feel?
When you consciously open up after you took care to release your shit and you get pure, the celebration makes everybody around you rejoice and it helps to unite with one another and feel peace. When it releases the old, when it frees from a traumatic past and brings and causes hope for the future, then you found meaning. Then you express and manifest gratitude for the devine or a remembrance of existence itself or an act of letting go and growth or something else that is holy to YOU, manifested in a ritual of your raving dance, then you found meaning.
For sure a celebration can be altruism, it can be and it is love, a service to others. Honestly, you may free yourself and others from something in ritual and dance. What is dance?! Why dancing around a fire beeing a crazy one? Today, go and bath yourself in the sound and let the music wash away what wants to go. Let the smoke lift up the heavy and dark. You can really rave as a service to others, in an act of purification through a sacred dance, instead of searching just for your own pleasure and high. If a celebration is steeped in sacredness and your way of prayer or ritual, it is enriched in deepth and dignity.
Go, and look into the fire.
Instead of pushing yourself into something, start this celebration today with an act of kindness, one moment of holding in, with a clear mind, in this safe space. We breathe in and out together in the meditation and you can connect with what you brought. We exhale and release what is not required and desired anymore. We inhale and take in what is treasuring and supporting us in a healthy way.
If you feel wierd, uncomfortable, heavy and low and it does not feel easy to be sober you might need the rave the most. Every pain or struggle we go through gives us deepness. Go there. If something botheres you, if you feel annoyed or bored, you dont like the music or someones face… If its doing your headín how others move, if you feel there is not enough space, or you feel not seen or you want to hide: PERFECT! Know you are loved and welcome and invited to celebrate life already by your birth. If you couldn´t so far, for your own good reasons, then you might have lived in a low mode joined by fear.
Maybe you know this: From the state of beeing in fear, grideness can arise. With these cravings, selfishness may occur and with this egoism and rage may emerge. Anger maybe followed by sadness and gloominess and then perhaps followed by lust that has its origin in pain instead of love, as you feel the need of filling these dark wholes of yours with something or someone! This is like a chain of reactions that you may usually want to stop or cover in drowning yourself or you daze yourself before you really feel it. Where sedation through alcohol or literally any way of modern anesthesia till the point of vomiting and fainting to forget feels better than facing yourself and the world with clear vision, open for change. But we need you. Once my yoga teacher said: If you take care of your butt yourself, all assholes are taken care of!
For today, you can enter a place where your mind can slow down in trust and your body and soul intelligence can take over and guide you through your own processes. Reconcile with the past and welcome the future. I propose, first take time for yourself, for the herbal potion, the breathing meditation and for your dance. Open up the room inside yourself and enter with love and creativity.
You are invited to express what is moving through YOU through movement. Share with respect and sensitive for ability in your unique way of selfexpression, what you have experienced in the past. Celebration can teach us to dance out all emotions: anger, happiness, frustration and sadness, to make room inside of us. Be respectful as you are sharing the space and make sure that we are all save and well and that you do not interrupt the others in their rituals. Get inspired and touched by the stories danced around you.
Celebration can teach us to breathe in joy and pleasure and can give us a new vision of life and hope for the next moments to come.
Some think only the celebration is the one and holy.
Some think sacredness is holding still and beeing silent.
Is the balance between outer stillness with an inner holy festive mood and an inner holy festive stillness while raving to the fullest, the answer?
A celebration that is born in silence can be a deep and honest way of celebrating what arises inside of us all that wants to be transformed to the outside.
Welcome to your sacred rave!
Welcome to oase!
