I don't have the answers for you. I don't know how long this wave will last.
I don't know what the world and our 5Rhythms world will look like in one week, one month, one year.
I don't know who among us will lose a loved one. A mother, a father, a husband, a wife, a child, a close friend, a co-worker, a community dancer.
I don't know who will have to find a new job, a new home, a new way of giving and receiving in society.
I don't know how long we'll need to dance alone in isolation, with intention and purpose for greater humankind, so that we may once again dance together.
I really don't know many things right now and I'm ok saying this out loud.
Chaos, the rhythm, gateway and art of knowing, gives us the permission to not know too.
This is the moment Gabrielle knew was coming and what we've prepared for.
Every time we stepped onto the dancefloor, we practiced tuning into ourselves, receiving and flowing with whatever comes our way. We transformed our fear into protection. Our inertia into possibility.
We committed to creating containers, connections, defining our actions in the world, respecting structure so we could meet the world today. We transformed anger into courage. Our tension into clarity.
We surrendered to the energy that becomes bigger than ourselves and yearns to be uncontrolled, in service to the great release of what no longer can be held onto. We moved our grief until it was ready to truly let go, shedding the skin that no longer fits, opening up the space for the creative to pulse on through.
And we saw, time and time again that if we follow the wave through these first three rhythms, that we will arrive to the other side lighter, freer, with curiosity, and with aligned purpose. That new joys will bubble to the surface and weave their ways into the present. New visions, new reflections, new life.
I've relied on this 5Rhythms Wave my whole life to bring me into the complete mystery, into the quiet still point of being comfortable with the uncomfortable. To slow dance with Chaos. To be the calm in the eye of the storm.
To simply be in gratitude to be alive.
And with that my loves, I invite you to dance with me and let our 5Rhythms Wave be your medicine. My offering in this moment is to pump up the music, clear your space and commit to dancing everything.
