Trinity Dance

Do not be astonished that I said to you, “You must be born from above.” The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.

BORN AFRESH IN THE MAYIM AND THE RUACH ~ the Water and the Spirit ~ we are set free, like the wind, like the breath of God, to dance in the beginningness, to return home to whom we really are. Every time we remember, each time we touch beauty, life, being, suffering, nature, the elements, and know that we touch them, we return to the time before time, moment before moments, the original dance in the mind/heart of God. It may just be for an inspired flash or we might stay longer, but we do return. Parent, Child, Breath dance then in self-emptying, eternally replenishing Love. We can do this because God has put Godself in all of us, in the very DNA of our being and all being, physical, spiritual, eternal.
Alright, for sure it seems easier to cover up the Dance with our fears and the pressures on our lives to conform with systems and structures, social, political, religious and philosophical, than it is to trust the freedom of the Holy Dance. But Christ has shown us how to do it and Christ empowers us to do it. Jesus of Nazareth lived in the Dance. John’s Gospel is perhaps the best attempt by any writer in history to meditate on how and why this was so, as well as how and why, through the risen Christ, we can do it too. This is our calling and our destiny. Through our baptism in the primordial Mayim and the Ruach Haqodesh (Spirit of Truth) we are already dancing. All that is necessary is that we let go the fear and the pressures to conform, and dance! Yes, those fears and pressures will fight back, you can be sure. They put Jesus to death after all. But they could not destroy the Dance.
Christ lives and in Christ, so do we.
