“…..you then realize that you don’t live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer, you are the dance.” A NEW EARTH – Eckhart Tolle
How many of us believe that we are the dancers, that we put the action into life? Do-si-do your partner – EEEEEHAW!
Think about this for just a moment. Realizing that little old me never was the one in charge of this life which I claim as mine can be somewhat diminishing if not outright devastating. It relegates the ego to a minor role in life’s theatrical production. In the book which many alcoholics refer to as the BIG BOOK, Bill W. tells us:
“Most people try to live by self-propulsion. Each person is like an actor who wants to run the whole show; is forever trying to arrange the lights, the ballet, the scenery and the rest of the players in his own way. If his arrangements would only stay put, if only people would do as he wished, the show would be great.” Bill W. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, pg. 60
Lights, camera, action! Let the dance begin. I am that which is being danced, life provides the script, the scenery, the other actors. Maybe asking God to do the do-si-do will result in a spectacular production?
