Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“Dance is the fastest, most direct route to the truth — not some big truth that belongs to everybody, but the get down and personal kind, the what’s-happening-in-me-right-now kind of truth. We dance to reclaim our brilliant ability to disappear in something bigger, something safe, a space without a critic or a judge or an analyst.

We dance to fall in love with the spirit in all things, to wipe out memory or transform it into moves that nobody else can make because they didn’t live it. We dance to hook up to the true genius lurking behind all the bulls*** — to seek refuge in our originality and our power to reinvent ourselves; to shed the past, forget the future and fall into the moment feet first. Remember being fifteen, possessed by the beat, by the thrill of music pumping loud enough to drown out everything you’d ever known?

The beat is a lover that never disappoints and, like all lovers, it demands 100% surrender. It has the power to seduce moves we couldn’t dream. It grabs us by the belly, turns us inside out and leaves us abruptly begging for more. We love beats that move faster than we can think, beats that drive us ever deeper inside, that rock our worlds, break down walls and make us sweat our prayers.

Prayer is moving. Prayer is offering our bones back to the dance. Prayer is letting go of everything that impedes our inner silence. God is the dance and the dance is the way to freedom and freedom is our holy work.

We dance to survive, and the beat offers a yellow brick road to make it through the chaos that is the tempo of our times. We dance to shed skins, tear off masks, crack molds, and experience the breakdown — the shattering of borders between body, heart and mind, between genders and generations, between nations and nomads. We are the transitional generation. This is our dance.” ~Gabrielle Roth

Wisdom tells me I am nothing.
Love tells me I am everything.
And between the two my life flows.

“People speak of ’sexual morality,’ but that is a misleading expression. There is no special morality for sex. No matter what you do with yourself, whether you go to bed with girls or with boys, and no matter what it occurs to you to do with them or with yourself, no moral rule applies to that sphere of activity other than the principles that govern every aspect of life: honesty, courage, common humanity, consideration.” ~Jens Bjørnebo

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"You keep telling me about moderation. That a little is enough. But sometimes for some of us, a little is not enough. Because, when it comes to something like wild walks or vulnerability or truth or heart-racing conversation or ecstatic contemplation or mind bending intimacy or all that catapults us into the flow, form and timelessness of our own aliveness, I am telling you that we deserve more than moderation." ~Victoria Erickson

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"I wouldn’t recommend the pursuit of consciousness to anyone.

I would not have chosen it for myself. I didn’t. It chose me. If it hasn’t called your number yet, don’t worry. It will, eventually.

It will draft you from your small life and make impossible demands. You will say,“No.” You will say, “It can’t be done.” You will say, “I don’t want to,” and it will laugh at your naiveté." ~Alison Nappi

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"The gurus can’t save you. The career can’t save you. The relationship can’t save you. You will only find your way one step at a time. Listen to others, if you want, and learn, but don’t make the mistake of thinking they know the way home. If they did, they would be there by now." ~Allison Nappi

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"The things we need most are the things we have become most afraid of, such as adventure, intimacy, and authentic communication.

We avert our eyes and stick to comfortable topics.

We hold it as a virtue to be private, to be discreet, so that no one sees our dirty laundry.

To be truly seen and heard, to be truly known, is a deep human need.

Our hunger for it is so omnipresent, so much a part of our life experience, that we no more know what is missing than a fish knows it is wet.

Always hungry for it, we seek solace and sustenance in the closest available substitutes; television, shopping, pornography, conspicuous consumption - anything to ease the hurt, to feel connected, or to project an image by which we might be seen or known, or at least see and know ourselves." ~Charles Eisenstein

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“Some people live in cages with bars built from their own fears and doubts.

Some people live in cages with bars built from other people's fears and doubts; their parents, their friends, their brothers and sisters, their families.

Some people live in cages with bars built from the choices others made for them, the circumstances other people imposed upon them.

And some people break free.” ~C. JoyBell C.

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“We sometimes cling to people in an attempt to hold them closer, but this often pushes them further away.

In love there is nothing to grasp; it is so expansive that trying to capture it is like trying to capture water with a net.

When we attempt to control where a relationship is going, we become disconnected with the sweetness of the moment.” ~Erin Coriell

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"We can collectively feel the loss of soul. It’s palpably cringe-worthy. Our culture reeks of it. Our society moves without it, rigid and machine-like, grinding us through its unforgiving gears.

We’ve inadvertently created a system that praises the independent ego at the expense of the interdependent soul, a system where the majority of people have uninitiated egos that are crushed by a co-dependence on a profoundly unhealthy and unsustainable state." ~Gary Z. McGee
