I’m almost finished with Part II of the Kundalini blog. Read Part I here. Whew, taking me awhile. In the meantime, here is a little prelude. A happy story for you!
When I taught drama in elementary school, I frequently had the kids up and dancing. Moving and shakin’ it with wild abandon. Or shaping dances of their own design. They liked it plenty, but I perhaps loved watching them even more.
In kindergarten I had an activity involving a drum. The kids would sit on the stage floor as still as possible with eyes closed. Very challenging for a 5 year old. Lots of anticipation. I would begin to play a hand drum with a slowish quiet beat and chant, “Energy’s moving in your bo-dy, energy’s moving in your FEET. Just your feet. Moving your feet. Let. Your. Feet. Move with the energy.” I would then direct the energy and movement to the legs increasing the drum beat steadily. This would go on till the drumming was frantic and loud and their entire little body was moving, eyes would fly open and the dancers would spark alive with energy busting out all over.
They’d go at it for awhile till they started dropping. Then I’d bring them back down, head to toes. Slowing the beat till they collapsed spent on the floor.
After we would place our hands on our hearts and feel it beat. We’d observe how the drum beat was like our hearts. I’d ask them, “What does your heart feel like?” You can imagine the utter heartbreaking sweetness of their answers.
My favorite answer ever was, “It feels like fun.”
Dear Reader, please close your eyes and put your hand on your heart? What does it feel like in there?
