How can we KNOW the dancer from the dance – Amongst School Children – W. B. Yeats
You are designed by Divine Intention to express its glory.
You are a unique dance of Love in form. As the poet William Wordsworth declares in his poem Intimations of Immortality you come into manifestation trailing clouds of glory.
Dance, dance wherever you may be I AM the Lord of the Dance said he and I’ll lead you all in Dance said he and I’ll lead you all in a dance said he.
Bhakti Yoga is the path of learning to undo all the blocks to the KNOWING of the Love of the Divine that is within designed to be expressed without.
This is not something you do. It is a revelation you allow.
It is not something you earn because this Divine Love is never kept from you. When you KNOW it, you will KNOW you could never earn this experience of Grace.
It’s just too magnificent for words.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ― Rumi
The blocks are mental, emotional, psychological and by way of armouring of the body. Many Bhakti yoga approaches simply avoid any approach to unblocking this energy. This the practice of spiritual bypassing.
These are the blocks that keep you from FEELING your connection to the experience of the loving presence of the Divine. The blocks are on your side.
A key way in which Divine Intention expresses through you is by way of the flow of creativity.
Divine Intention loves creation and the process of creativity. It is why it designed you to express through you.
To this writer this expansion of creativity is the Western way of Bhakti Yoga. You devote your energy to allowing the fullness of Divine Intention to be expressed through you.
This is the invitation from the parable of the talents as told by the Master Jesus.
This is not your talent, but the talent given to you from Universal intent to be expressed in the world of time and space.
When you devote yourself to this expression you are unfolding as you are created to unfold. In this way you honour the way in which creation is set up to express through you.
This is the practice of allowing and surrender to the energy of the Divine. This is the practice of undoing all the blocks that keep you from the KNOWING of Love.
Note that the unfolding of the talent and creativity designed to be expressed through you is not for the aggrandisement of the ego or separate sense of personal self.
It is for the greater glory of God and the highest good of all.
