I have come to know,
from the breath that blows through all things, that
ALL that is –-
is encounterable within change and movement.
People, situations, relationships and things
are more verbs than nouns.
Listening from the silent centre of another’s life,
I loosen my threads
and rediscover my self
stitched into a common fabric with the other.
Hearing others –-
letting their silence speak in my movement
and in the gestures of the world around both of us –-
allows people and things to resonate as one.
Everything is part of the dance.
When rooted in the stillness-within-movement,
the self is no longer bound in one’s body
nor located only in the heart of another;
it lives in the bonding space between the two,
and around the both, and in the dance.
I have taught this for most of my life
and am dedicated to continuing this work
for as long as the breath that blows through all things
continues to flow through me.
