Dancing your heart out on new year’s eve.

​Looking forward to dancing full out on new year’s eve. I see dance as a therapy where i can be myself and express myself. Actually, its more of getting in sync with the music and freeing your body and mind and then letting the music coarse through you.

A state where you as an ego disappear and your natural free spirit comes out. A blissful experience.
Everything is a stepping stone to the divine. Anything can be used for enlightenment, if you give your all fully, where you disappear and only the dance remains, for example. You make space for something else, for the divine within you. Ego can be greater than the world, and both the ego and divine cant coexist. 
People take drugs for same purpose to disappear, but dont last long. Dance is the healthier way. 
You can describe a thing from many ways, and same thing with the enlightenment, though i’m only inferring from some glimpses here and there.
Shiva is called nataraja, the lord of dance, for a reason. He embodies divine and also has a statue in nataraja form. Only the indian gods in the whole world are known for dance, with another great dancer being krishna and his raas leela in his childhood days. 

History wise, mevlana rumi, the great sufi poet and an enlightened being, had his dance of whirling dervishes, called sema. Sufism is known for their offering of love to the divine through music. So did the great devotees of krishna, like meerabai and tulsidas. Music comes naturally with devotion.

Divinity has no limitations. Why deny or suppress something which is natural? I’m only talking spirituality here to make my points, and not about religion. They just happen to be connected. In essence, they are same. Becoming more than what you are right now. Becoming boundless.

I want to go and get some rhythm and nataraja moment going.
Dance is a free movement of hands and legs. It can be anyway. Feel the flow inside you. Be the dance.
Let this night be a blissful conscious night, not the unconscious one with drinks. Put a limit. Making memories and passing out dont go together.
Happy New Year. Welcome the new year with a new you.

I wanted to get a statue of nataraja, like the one, mooji has besides him during the satsang, but then i found out that it is not advisable to keep the statue of nataraja, as his dance of tandava symbolises the destruction of universe. So, better play safe. But positively speaking, shiva is known as destroyer, that is of ego.
