Don’t Be Pushed by Your Problems. Be Led by Your Dreams – Ralph Waldo Emerson

This rhythm of life is made of the music we create. The low tones of worries and the high notes of exhilaration; the melody follows the vibrations we are sending out into the world.  These vibrations, we are creating with the very dance of our thinking. The thought processes we are being pushed by or led by.

In each dance, a partner is introduced. It either grabs us or we invite it onto the ballroom floor. The partner who grabs us is the thinking, which we have allowed to condition our thought process. This partner twirls us around until we are dizzy. It will not use a counting method and will take away all confidence until we lose our footing. We rely on it to make sure we do not make a fool of ourselves and will push us to surrender to the low tones of worry and fear.

Sometimes, however, we hear a lighter melody. One with jubilant notes and an enlightening mystery. One we are curious to dance with and bravely jump to invite onto the ballroom floor. It is as if no other partner could possibly exist and the only less we feel is prefixed with the word limit. Limitless. It leads us into an illuminating realization of who we are and re-introduces us to the songs we left behind when a previous partner grabbed it right out of our hearts. We glide, with this partner, right into our dreams.

The dance of our thinking is an essential gift we have been given. We may observe and greet our partners as they attempt to lure us into the ball. Or we may let it know we have arrived, find the partner with the heart of our dream, and tango.
