28. MY JOURNEY WITH PAIN. Path of Love, Italia
I won't tell the series of coincidences and the why and wherefore, but without Miasto's Mystic Rose, I don't know if I would have ever known this group with the challenging name Path of Love.
One of the two leaders was (and still is!) The American John, whom I already had in the Essence Training.
The group lasted a week in November 2008. I remember John greeting us on the morning of November 4th as usual, before the daily session, but this time with the sentence: 'Yes We Can!' Barak Obama had just been elected President of the United States of America! He was the first African-American President!
In that limited number group, I had entered at the last moment because a participant had canceled at the last minute. And for me, it was a breakthrough. Never in my life had I felt this way!!!
Today the memory of all that vitality, dedication, passion, wholeness, dance, prayer, connection supports me when I have my moments of resignation and discouragement. I think of that fabulous, passionate, and feminine woman, a Bhakti goddess, born to sing to the Divine, dance, and celebrate it, smiling at life.
I remember that the Dynamic Meditation of the last day, a very tiring and physically demanding active meditation of Osho lasting an hour, rather than 'doing' it, 'happened' without feeling even a pain. And time flew by in a flash.
My deep part had emerged in all its glory. And all the loving and passionate support of the assistants, facilitators, and co-leaders had created and sustained a field of wondrous love for us participants.
The pains disappeared.
For me, loving God means loving the truth; to love one's neighbor as oneself is to recognize the unity of one's soul and life with every other human life and with the eternal Truth - God.
PRAYAN & MARCO FADDA 'DANCE!' IN THE VIDEO ON THE SIDE
'Dance, when you're broken open
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off
Dance in the middle of the fighting
Dance in your blood
Dance when you're perfectly free.'
