astonishment

At the back of our brains, so to speak, there is a forgotten blaze or burst of astonishment at our own existence. The object of the artistic and spiritual life is to dig for this sunrise of wonder.

dance

We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.

taste of spring


athelete

I am a dancer. I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which come the shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes in some arena an athlete of God.

desire

Though they may look similar at first glance, true and false desires “taste” completely different. To put it briefly, false desires taste of fear; true desires always taste of love.

-Martha Beck
