The Sacred Dance of Life – by Shuddhaanandaa-Brahmachari



It is only on the surface, at the periphery, that we see the world of randomness, but deep at its root, the dance of life is in perfect harmony and balance. The Divine designer has designed this unique creation with LOVE and connected everything together; nothing is separated from the other. The level where matter and energy play the dance of creativity is the quantum level, the root of the tree of life. Here is where the essence of life happens, and then the flower blossoms, fragrance spreads, bees come running. They take away the essence, the honey. The flower smiles, the bees sing and dance, the universal ballet continues. This is the sacred dance of the cosmos that is LOVE.

If we want to experience the oneness of this Divine Dance, then we need to water the root of life. We can do that by the practice of deep observation of our physical sensations and rhythm of breath as the light of consciousness rewires our brain neurons to gift us health and inner wellness. This happens when we practice meditation.

To me true meditation is not serious stuff, it is just to allow our heart and soul to join the Cosmic dancer and be His/Her partner in the eternal dance of Life. 
The goal is to not be serious about our spirituality, but to just dance our way to the pathless, goalless ecstasy of the Divine Concert.

Our true spiritual pathless path, method less method, is a dance. This is where we come to realize We are both the dancer and the dance. The mystery is we are not seeking any happiness but our Self. We have to reach nowhere, but Now and Here. We don’t wander in the valleys of our past painful memories or the peaks of yet to achieve achievements in our future. The past and future drop when we start to dance.

Knowledge is good, but that is only intellectual. Our journey is the journey of the inner world where the intelligence of theories and theologies don’t work, only love reigns supreme there. Once that heart center opens, the petals of the lotus of the heart blossom into all expansive and enveloping light of love and compassion.

All our spiritual practices should release us of all assumptions and conditions; see how a child dances when she sees others around her ready to enjoy her dance! So also, let our spiritual practice not make us look serious and somber but ever smiling and conscious of the fundamental reality that dancer and the dance is one and inseparable. We and the Divine are the expression of one another.
