The Body by Anasma

The body is an orchestra ... It is wise and complex, graceful and harmonious, combining proficiently all the instruments under the agile directions of the conductor... Each musician is in charge of playing his instrument autonomously and yet he listens to the other instruments. All together, as One, they create and co-create one whole, one unit, one ensemble with the same tempo, the same breath. Their rhythms, theme might vary, different, complement each other, but in the end, they are together. 

The body : a divine creation with networks and systems that complement each other. Many organs keep working beyond our conscious control. Our heart beats without our brains sending a signal. We breath without thinking about it. More than we imagine, it is tuned to the cycles of the Universe,  the times of the day and night, cycles of the sun, the moon, the tides, the seasons...

Other body parts, we can pay attention too, focus on and develop an awareness for, and even sometimes learn to control. Getting of sense of where our weight is, how is our back aligned, if our limbs are extended fully, how much muscle power or release we can apply to movement... 

The beauty of this body we are given in this life is that is enables a connection to GOD, it is a pathway to him and a proof that we are an extension of His grand vision and creations. Throw the body, we can reach GOD, we can reach ourselves, behind the Ego, we can create, procreate. We can live, we can feel, we can touch, we can see, appreciate the simple things of life... 

In a way, as dancers, we have the chance to know our bodies, its needs, explore our limits, develop our body awareness further maybe than non-dancers... to be closer to God. 
As dancers, we learn to push the limits of the self, to be stronger technically in our art but also as people, with strong minds and strong will. 

On other side, with the years,  of growing, of learning and always pushing myself, I start to discover and enjoy the nothingness, the need to not do what I love the most for too much of what I love can also be unhealthy at times. I need to just come back to my body and its needs, instead of listening to my voluntary head that pulls my body like a locomotive. Let go... of the control. Let go of the ambition to always improve and powerful will... Just be, just stay in place... balanced. Not reaching forward constantly. 

Come back to the body instead of staying up in the brain... 

Our bodies, a precious jewel, an ephemeral tresor that can be taken away from us sooner than we wanted... A fragile envelope that can get hurt and that we need to cherish and take care of... Let the body rest, eat properly, stay calm and peaceful. Never take it for granted. Good health is such a gift.

The body speaks, expresses itself sometimes beyond our mind's controls with its own intelligent language, posture. It is the envelope of the soul we cannot see but feel. It shows our emotions. It remembers events our minds may have forgotten. It has a powerful memory. 

The body also changes each day, learns , unlearns, forgets, discovers strengths within. It is not a constant easy flow. It has its ups and downs, like a bumpy road, with speeding zones and zones to slow down  as winter hibernations, and we need to look around and look after passenbys...

We are never done learning, discovering. Enjoy the journey, remember to take pleasure. Be grateful to what you've been given. Be creative with it and methodical too. BALANCE. CONNECT.
