Everything is Waiting for You

Your great mistake is to act the drama as if you were alone.

As if life were a progressive and cunning crime with no witness to the tiny hidden transgressions.To feel abandoned is to deny the intimacy of your surroundings.

Surely, even you, at times, have felt the grand array; the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding out your solo voice

You must note the way the soap dish enables you, or the window latch grants you freedom. Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.

The stairs are your mentor of things to come, the doors have always been there to frighten you and invite you, and the tiny speaker in the phone is your dream-ladder to divinity.

Put down the weight of your alone-ness and ease into the conversation.

The kettle is singing even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots have left their arrogant aloofness and seen the good in you at last.

All the birds and creatures of the world are unutterably themselves.

Everything is waiting for you.

Each of us has the power and responsibility to heal ourselves, to be our own medicine man or woman. Awakening our innate powers of being, loving, knowing, seeing, and healing involves ongoing work at all levels and in all dimensions of our self. Exploring the range of rhythms and emotions, achieving insights into our conditioning and ego, moving through the energy levels of spirit—these are all activities to be integrated into our daily lives.

Here are some images via my flickr page: Some of my time at the Musical Instrument Museum. I taught Flamenco Music & Dance Classes to kids with Chris Burton Jacome. As you can see, some parents jumped in and learned some Sevillanas as well!

Other images are from my time in Ashland, Oregon as I taught a 3-day flamenco dance workshop in conjunction to a performance with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble and Ashland-based, Flamenco Duo at Southern Oregon University.

Other images are from my Flamenco! Coffee Table Book and from Sergio Photographer as he shot images during a one day rehearsal and performance at The Chandler Center for the Arts.

Other images are from the Rhythm and Roots Series based in Tucson of the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble’s time at Plaza Palomino taken by photographer Bob Block.
