BE LIFE…

kolasin summer camp

 

“If you dance your life, you dance better” C.Gavito

 

I just came back from Tango Summer Camp in Kolasin, Montenegro. It is for me a Tango Woodstock event, full of tango (lessons, practicas, milongas, concerts, movies, lessons for kids etc), yoga, body-work in the nature, tango aerobics, chacarera, hiking, biking, climbing, rafting, horse-riding, friends, food and much more.. more than you can manage 🙂 Still, the biggest thing about this event is, that it is full of love, sharing and good people.

I am not going to talk about the event (you should experience it yourself). I will talk about one of my experiences during the body-work session in nature (led by Darko Dozic). Darko led us to a semi-meditative state where we could feel and be LIFE itself, without trying to resist, judge or understand, while accepting and feeling alive and only being LIFE. This was the moment when I started to really feel like a tree, a bird, an atom in the air or a person or a dancer. This is the life…

In our lives we have many roles, like son/daughter, spouse, mum/dad, worker, colleague, boss, buyer/seller, man/woman, teacher/student or tanguero/tanguera. Each role expects that we take certain shapes within its frames… It is the easiest and the most difficult thing to get rid of those roles and feel like the air or a tree or only feeling ourselves. Not considering it good or bad, but simply accepting it and existing, being life. As Darko said, the statements like “rain is good, rain is bad, too hot, too cold, good and bad…” are labels. There actually is no need to judge things and people and categorizing them as good or bad. Try to leave them as they are, leave your ego and just feel and be life itself… See other people, plants, trees, animals as life too and touch them like you feel the life… Life in life…

Life in life… I had this wonderful feeling while dancing with a pregnant tanguera: I was life, dancing with/in a life in life… It was a priceless experience…

For me, this is also a big new challenge. I know, talking about something is much easier than applying it. I am trying harder to keep the feeling of being LIFE, it seems worth it… 🙂

A friend of mine shared with me the short movie below on facebook. Balloon dogs in a cactus forest; dancing, loving, sharing… They become ONE and they change shapes and adapt… They do not question, but only become one merging with the other one and with the life surrounding them…

I am enjoying this new feeling: I am LIFE…
