If Life asked you to dance, would you say yes?

I want to know…..what do you ache for?
What is it that your heart longs for and desires?
Do you ever let your mind float away like a feather to the clouds?
Do you let yourself dream and believe in the endless possibilities of tomorrow?

What is it that touches your soul?
What do words like wisdom and beloved and spirit mean to you?
Do you understand honesty and how it works?
Have you ever painted yourself with passion?

Do you know how to balance on one foot,
With strength in one hand and tenderness in the other?
What engages you, awakens you or excites you?
How do you keep the pace and the beat of your soul’s unique rhythm?

Do you often look in the mirror and see your true self?
What colour is the mask that you wear or do you feel safe enough to take it off?
Have you found your truth that was tucked away in your shirt pocket?
Have you ever sat down and told yourself the secret to happiness?

Do you accept and embrace the adventure that is Life?
Or do you prefer knitting and stamp collecting?
Have you ever felt Life’s sweet ecstasy and let it fill you to the tips of your fingers?
Have you ever moved your body wildly to Nature’s primal beat?

Have you ever closed your mind because of fear or sorrow?
Have you learnt yet how to smile and shine at failure and judgement?
Have you ever met betrayal, disappointment or hopelessness?
Have you ever sat and had a chat with your pain?

Do you know how beautiful you truly are?
Have you learnt how to be alone with yourself, and how to kiss the empty moments?
And when everything falls away, have you learnt how to make sustenance and faith from flour and water?

But most of all, I want to know if you would risk looking like a fool for Me?
What about for Love? Would you do it then?
And if Life asked you to dance and kick up your heels to its frenetic Jazz,
Would you say yes?
