The Gravity of the Dance
Little Bear: Ramji, I came home to the reservation to visit my father and take part in the annual midwinter ceremony where we dance and give thanks for the natural world. I had a wonderful experience that was really unexpected.
Now that I have recognized all the little egocentric games my ego plays for acceptance and validation, I have no more motivation to seek that type of interaction from other tribal members. At the same time, I don’t see myself as an Indian anymore. So as I danced I was overwhelmed with the immense gratitude and love for the dance itself. Feeling the gravity and the rhythm of the dance. It’s like I had to stop being Indian before I could really “feel” what the spiritual essence of the culture was all about before it became an identity. I’m still studying Tattva Bodha and just wanted to say thank you for sharing the truth with me. The work continues.

Ramji: You never were an Indian, Little Bear. You are always only pure consciousness, the Great Spirit. The gravity of Isvara’s dance of life is wonderful indeed, and gratitude is the only emotion.
~ Much love, Ramji
