Freedom

July is here.

And so is the fourth.

Independence day: beer, friends, BBQ and of course loud and colorful fireworks. All traditional celebratory independence manners, that as the dictionary would note, are showing desire for freedom. 

Freedom.

And don't we all desire freedom? 

And here we could start a long conversation, done many times in endless nights with friends, philosophers, politicians, musicians and artists. 

I am still committed to it, as I was back then, but now I go one step further inside myself this time. Into the invisible, into my spirit. And that's where I find my freedom clarity. That's the first step to start and then, eventually, move onto action for sharing and promoting freedom with the world around.

The words of Gabrielle Roth, once again, come to mind: 

“It takes discipline to be a free spirit.”

Discipline! Regular dancing is my discipline. Dancing my freedom with discipline. Following Gabrielle's maps, searching for the movements that free the parts of my body that have been enslaved and constricted by conventions, fears, impositions, proper rules, bigotry and religious stigmas.

To experience the connection with the earth, the fire within, the cleansing of the water and the lightness of the air. To discover freedom in my spirit.

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose, says Janis Joplin. Oh, I love her too.

Happy Fourth!

Fool Moon

HAPPY EASTER FOOL MOON!

So easy to make things appear different from reality. Our egg shaped moon is funny and harmless and nobody would believe it for a second. But it's so easy to spread foolish, deviant, fake news, images and ideas to millions of people. And so much of this is happening these days. So much damage is done by so many ruthless humans in search of power and control for whatever reason.

It's an ancient practice. Kings, priests, historians and charlatans have done and still do this for centuries and have created religions, believes, rules of laws and theories that unfortunately are still endangering the progress of human evolution, the society, our relationships. 

Fortunately there are ways to experience how to be together and be ourselves without the need to appear different or to create any type of image.

And our way to do that is dancing together regularly and holding a safe space where we can be true to ourselves. To create a space and time together where spontaneity and sincerity are all what count, and being who we really are is the first step to clarity, empowerment and freedom.

To be ourselves, to renew, to grow stronger and to make a difference in this foolish world.
