of my favorite passions in life is dancing. All of my life I have
had a deep love for music. I sing and dance with happy tunes intuitively
expressing my inner enthusiasm. My excitement for music is a natural
treat for my entire body as I swing with its rhythm and joy through
For me dancing is a magical exercise
of letting go. I waltz around my living room and out into the garden
elevated in my euphoric state of mind. I am in heaven. I sing and dance
around my two dogs, Button and Little Love, who jump with me in my
I especially like dancing to the
beat of familiar Strauss waltzes, a lively tango, or even to a slow
elegant Eng-lish waltz. To these vivacious rhythms my imagination leaps
into a spiritual oneness. I am alive! I feel energized. I feel an
invigorating blessing through every cell of my body as it vibrates its
eternal youthfulness. Every organ, action and function of my body
sparkles with the wonderful musical freshness: purity and perfection.
Dancing gives a magical lift to my
happy life, to my healthy body--it is flying in unlimited
Some years ago while traveling with
a friend in Northern California our trip was blessed with many thrilling
adventures. A special peak moment I delight to share here:
One evening leisurely strolling
through an antique cowboy town, I heard music playing from a crowded
restaurant. I stopped and listened! These were MY songs, those well
known captivating melodies from the fifties and sixties, music which
still electrifies me to sing and dance and be part of it.
"Letís go dancing," I burst out,
bubbling with enthusiasm. Off we ran in the direction of the music.
Shortly we were standing in front of
the restaurant pouring out my melodies! They were my favorites. They
were wonderful! Nothing could hold me back even as I was told it was a
private wedding party.
My joy, my eagerness to dance,
miraculously opened the doors to us. As though we belonged as wedding
guests my friend and I walked confidently into the party and soon were
tripping the light fantastic to every song played for the wedding party.
We had even more fun than the
wedding guests, we really did, and everyone followed our lead as we
danced across the floor. We had lots of fun. When the music stopped
giggles and laughters embraced the room all joining in a special cheers
on behalf of the wedding couple. To triumph our dancing and in
celebration of the wedding we received glasses of the finest
Champaign--an additional treat!
My fire of enthusiasm was burning
high! I went right up to the wedding couple. I danced to the platform,
accepted the microphone near the orchestra from the band leader. I
introduced my friend and myself. The room was now attentive and
interested. With rapt awareness all eyes were on me. My heart sparkled
forth in loving words. I faced the bride and the groom. In anticipation
they looked into my eyes. I told them they had already been spiritually
married before the minister tied the official knot. I smiled thoughts of
joy and told them that on their path of life each live independently yet
together. I asked:
"Lift up your glasses and hold them
high. Today we are in the presence of two blessed people, this wedding
couple, who have before them a life filled with happiness, joy, harmony,
abundance and peace. They are creating about them a home of the most
sacred love. Every person who enters their home is blessed and eternally
filled with wholeness and joy. Now drink this nectar of the gods and
sing divine praises to this esteemed man and woman."
In a vapor of light and love my
friend and I disappeared out into the night after dancing our hearts out
in the magical musical blessing.
