Nirvana simply means the understanding that all desire are futile- the desire of nirvana included.
Desire as such is absurd, to be in a desireless state is what nirvana is all about.
The very idea of attaining is egoistic, any goal whatsoever, achieving anything is a mind game.
And nirvana simply means seeing all this-and through seeing it drops. Not that u have to drop, it drops itself when u realize that all desires are ego trips.
Desiring in itself is cause of misery because it takes us away from now, from the present, from the here. And in existence only now exist, there is no past, no future, only present is here-ओशो
evening of #movement#curiosity and #dialogue at #lelaboratoire#cambridge with Ilya Vidrin and Lisa Wong on #dance and #empathy ...It connected with a lot of what’s been on my mind this week: what is authentic self-expression/communication? Do we even know what that looks or feels like when we are constantly performing under scrutiny and scrutinizing carefully curated constructions of reality? Trust and empathy have become buzzwords—in dance partnerships, healthcare, and education...but empathy and trust aren’t just inherent to human relationships, nor are they lofty ideals—they’re cultivated through #mindful and consistent #practice . Who/what keeps us accountable to this practice? Intentionality matters: we considered the distinction between “coming together to dance” vs “coming together through dance.” I️ did #ballroom for a few semesters in college but could never get past my personal insecurities and the prescriptive and performative aspect of it. The learning space I️ created for myself was one in which I️ felt awkward, clumsy, and sometimes self-loathing; this probably made for awkward and sheepish communication with my dance partners...In Brazil, I️ learned #farro with my hips pressed against a stranger’s. In Argentina, I️ began taking #salsa#danzacontemporáneo y #jazzurbano and my teachers weren’t afraid to teach through #touch (Why are we so uncomfortable with physical touch in the US?) they showed me how to think of my body differently, encouraging me to just #explore the #mechanics and push the limits to what I thought my body could do, to #move to what I️ felt, to forget the #socialconstructs of #grace and #beauty for a moment, and to take the #judgement out of each movement...this realization that my body and it’s deliberate movement has #value is #empowering#liberating and #inspiring ; and as I️ am beginning to connect with myself, I️ find it easier to connect with other people (spoiler alert: some days are still harder than others..but that’s why it’s a journey and a daily practice, right?) thanks @reciprocal_practice for inspiring another one of my obnoxiously public moments of self reflection 😛
