Dancer truth is very simply the image from which a movement emerges.
The movement is my summation of myself at a moment in time and space.
The movement is the replication of my strands of experience, genetic and situational, that have formed the person I see, feel, and interact with.
With my personal movement I set in motion an infinite range of molecular transitions within all humans and all life in my vicinity.
To discover truth I only have to experience my own movement as it interconnects with other life.
Yet there are the hasty ways I summarize myself to satisfy many yearnings. Illusion and deception are their own set of skills.
What can I do? I watch the dancer experiment with vast realms of truth. I follow a kind of protocol for their experiments.
The dancer confers with the nature of the human and finds experience skills. First engage all resources, all human systems, all the ways of interconnecting internally and externally. Second, make peace with the unknowns where surprises are created. Third begin with the simplest movement of all these resources and combine their simple connections into networks of connections. Fourth, sort the variations of connections by rhythm and melody. Fifth, slow everything down so you can insert images that can be replicated in every cell within and outside the human system. Sixth, openly interact with other life to modify the summations of movements.
Yet there is still the prevalence of illusion and a taste for hasty compilations of my self. Trite solutions that are harmful to self and others can proliferate. I study the dancer who trains their focus to work within the illusion. They develop an agility to move between narrow task centered focus and a broad interconnected focus.
The illusion can be turned in minute degrees to get different perspectives and to reveal not only choices being made but also where the illusion began to take hold of the the human system.
Using an agile alternating focus, the dancer goes deep within the self to create new movements, rhythms, a song that reflects the emerging self.
Yet I may still hold on to a reluctance to yield a unified response to the emerging movement song. This is what the human calls “a bottom.” There is no alternative than to ask for a clear pathway.
Who to ask is both critical and negligible. I will ask trusted friends who may side with me. I will ask my creator or my personal guide to the creator of all life. I may ask into a silence of complete unknowing. The dancer asks within the movement, slowing down everything to listen carefully. This is where I begin and end.
Simply asking within the self will bring perspective for the person who is agile in interconnections and in focus skills. Yet like the insistent person in prayer, asking must be persistent and tested repeatedly.
I must ask over and over, “Is this true?” The responses come from every corner of myself with a unity that is undeniable and irresistible. The results are rejuvenating and not depleting. The results are helpful and not harmful.
Expending energy is a complete experience of total engagement. I respond with all myself and meets head on both the initial fear of so much power within me and also all the doubts and self criticism that follow. There is an immediate bounce back of life within and outside my self..
A truth has become another song, another movement.
