Dancing as a Meditation
Nataraj is a simple meditation for all the people. You don’t need to be a “dancer”, rather is better not to be. Just need to be present in the moment and let yourself flowing to the dance.
And through the dance you can discover the beautiful and uniqueness in your being.
Disappear in the dance
Forget the dancer, the center of the ego; become the dance. That is the meditation. Dance so deeply that you forget completely that you are dancing and begin to feel that you are the dance. The division must disappear then it becomes a meditation. If the division is there, then it is an exercise: good, healthy, but it cannot be said to be spiritual. It is just a simple dance. Dance is good in itself – as far as it goes, it is good. After it, you will feel fresh, young. But it is not meditation yet. The dancer must go, until only the dance remains.
So what to do? Be totally in the dance, because division can exist only if you are not total in it. If you are standing aside and looking at your own dance, the division will remain: you are the dancer and you are dancing. Then dancing is just an act, something you are doing; it is not your being. So get involved totally, be merged in it. Don’t stand aside, don’t be an observer.
