TangoGenesis :: What is within?
The Orion Nebula...from the Hubble Space Telescope...
Too often, especially for leaders, tango is about the external. It's about the vocabulary, the elements, the figures, the combinations, the "stuff". It's about the classes, the workshops, the god-teachers, the festivals. Conscious thought and the ego muck it all up. (I'm being good, I wanted to use the 'f' word...)
Knowledge versus "knowing".
We forget that tango, not tango the dance, but tango the feeling, can well up, spring forth, or otherwise materialize within the context of the physical connection we share with our partner - from within us - exclusive of our knowledge. TangoGenesis.
Knowledge is material, physical, tactile. "Knowing" is energetic, spiritual, vibrational. Knowlege is facts and rules and constraints. "Knowing" is the limitless realm of possibility - the infinite.
Tango is born from within. TangoGenesis from what we hold in our hearts, our souls, and our conscious and unconscious thoughts. It is our past life experience, and it is what our future holds. It is what we hold within our energetic beings. It "is" our energetic being. The energy we are and encompass and project to another.
Yes, tango is a feeling, but do you feel tango?
I've always considered myself more in tune with the "inner" than most. Being more enlightened than the next guy, with regard to what is going on inside, is something I've focused on for many years in my life, and more recently in my tango.
But these past several days, I've had some help. I'm still reading.
