By accepting all aspects of life, 
good and bad, 
right and wrong, 
yours and mine, 
the static, defensive life, 
which is what most people are cursed with, 
my journey has been converted into a dance, 
the  cosmic dance of life,

I can dance to sorrow or to joy; 
even dance abstractly. 
The point is that, 
by the mere act of dancing, 
the elements which compose it are transformed; 
my dance is an end in itself,
 just like life. 

My acceptance of the situation, 
any situation, 
brings about a flow, 
a rhythmic impulse towards self-expression. 

To relax is, of course, the first thing I had to learn. 
It is also the first thing a patient has to learn 
when confronting a disease. 

It is the first thing anyone has to learn 
in order to fully live. 
It is extremely difficult, 
because it means surrender to what is,
 full surrender.

Life can be a conflict, 
and being part of life, 
I could be an expression of conflict. 
When I recognized that fact 
and accepted it, 
I was able to know peace 
and enjoy it. 

But arriving at this end, 
which is only a beginning
I had to learn the doctrine of acceptance, 
that is, of unconditional surrender, 
which is love.

As an awakened individual, 
life begins now, 
at any and every moment; 
it begins at the moment 
when I realize that I am part of a great whole, 
and in that realization
 I become myself whole. 

In the knowledge of limits and relationships 
I discover eternal self, 
moving with obedience and discipline 
in full freedom.

True love 
is never perplexed, never qualifies, never rejects, never demands. 
It replenishes, 
by grace,
restoring unlimited circulation. 
It burns, 
because it knows the true meaning of sacrifice. 
It is life illuminated.
