When The Dance Ends
I have been given many labels: a "Yogi", when I was stretching or sitting with my eyes closed, straight back and peaceful smile; a "Dancer" when I couldn't resist moving to amazing music played on the street; a "Musician", when without any schooling I picked up guitar and started pouring my soul out; a "Leader" when I inspired others to dance to the rhythms; an "Artist" when I picked up a brush and enjoyed the traction between the paper and wet bristles.
Are you "This"? Are you "That"? I kept being asked.
"No", I would be calmly but strongly explaining "I'm just a Human!!!"
Annoyed at first at how easily it is to fool people: A Yogi? Me? I haven't gone to a single yoga class! An artist? Me? This isn't even pretty!
But later shocked and annoyed at people not realising their own talent and potential.
"Yes, we are all dancers, aren't we?" I would start answering.
"Sure, we are all artists at heart!"
"Just as much as you are."
Since that realisation my ultimate goal in life has become - to fight against labeling others and for accepting ourselves as beautiful, talented, multi-faceted human beings, artists, yogis, musicians, dancers, babies and leaders at the same time.
That is my main purpose in Create-Move-Connect project.
