Welcome to this Dance We Call Life


An excerpt from Cheryl’s Book:

The New Akashic Records
Strand Forty-Four

Welcome to this dance we call life. A waltz, a tango, a polka, the two-step. Misstep here, slide and twirl there, turning forever into the next step, the next dance, in this life. Dancing alone, with a partner, following, leading. Melded to a music that beats within, pumping us with passion and joy. On we go creating the dance, its steps, our response, our lead, our follow.

Memory powers our dance, bringing us the next step seemingly from nowhere. In the beginning as we learn, we must think through each step each movement here and there. As the steps begin to flow, our attention moves to our partner, to the music, to the other dancers while memory, now unconsciously recollected, keeps us upright, in step, with the beat, smiling, enjoying this moment in flow with the dance.

In the dance, memory is of image and of bodily sensation. We witness our own dance and the dance of others. Each step driven by joy to take another step as memory provides the bridge between the last steps and the next steps. We observe and are observed. Observation integrating with feeling and thought, creating new movement, new feeling, new thought, a new dance to experience within and without. Where does one start, where does one end? In the dance we learn by heart.

Dance, dance wherever you may be
For I am the Lord of the Dance said he
I’ll lead you all wherever you may be
And I’ll lead you all in the dance said he.
