Peace Dances home
Ralph & DUP
After the Oneness Project lost their funds (for DUP) in the Bernard L. Madoff investment crash on the 12th of December 2008, the Latvian “Dancing Heart Camp” organisers were quite disturbed: they had hoped for grants for their camp… So it was arranged, that one evening at a certain time all would meditate on this problem and see what would come up.
Being one of the invited DUP leaders, I participated. To my surprise I relaxed intensely, leaned back and began to smile. ”Don’t worry, all shall be well!” was the main thought coming to my mind. The others had similar positive experiences during this meditation.
So: don’t worry - be happy!
Thanks God for this economic recession, because it makes us think - and review our life style!
Some people try to live for a Pound a day (and get quite a bit of media coverage). One woman wrote an article about her experiences with zero spending for a week: apart from having “saved” £260, she reports a highlight, which was baking pizza at home with her son and his boyfriend instead of dining out. And after 5 days, when she began running low on food at home, she decided to keep the leftovers and make soup from them for the next day. Of course this is common sense, but some people seem to need to learn it the hard way.
It is little things, which can change life, and usually they are connected with becoming creative.
Free yourself from being in the addicted role of a victim of circumstances. Do not read any papers, don’t watch TV or listen to the radio, unless they make you laugh or at least smile!
Listen to your friends, and cheer them up. Sometimes we can’t see the wood for the trees, and feedback from a third person can bring new hope, ideas or inspiration.
Why do people go on a pilgrimage? They focus on a goal - they renounce cosy comfort - it is an effort - they see new places, meet new people and get inspired… The current economic downturn throws quite a few people into a new situation; this could be a pilgrimage, a shake up / wake up call…
I’ve seen articles in tabloid newspapers recently: a lot about how to cope with the credit crunch, including an article about how to be happy (surprise! The outcome was that money doesn’t bring it, but we need to change the way see things).
In these times of crisis - or better said: opportunities! - when people begin to question their current situation and seek for new ways, chances are high they discover the DUP - and like them.
Dancing is so much more satisfying than any retail therapy, because it is more real and closer to our being.
There can be much more to the DUP than meets the eye:
I know two people, who recently had an amazing spiritual opening experience: while hugging each other after intensive peace dancing, their chakras opened one by one, they felt the energies flowing and had profound experiences later on many levels.
The DUP have changed many people’s lives. Unfortunately most people having these intensive spiritual awakenings neither make it public, nor talk about it.
The DUP are a blissful and uplifting spiritual practice, and they do work with us on more than one level. In troublesome times they seem to be just the right thing to do. The Dances of Universal Peace can be a perfect path towards inner harmony and subsequently outer peace, an ideal way to grow into the global rising consciousness of mankind and our planet.
