making. tension. breakthrough.

Making.by Piper Lauri Salogga

Sit with the tension.  Yours and mine.  Ours.  Sit with the tension and let it move you deep, deeper inside.  Let the outside move you in.  Let the movement overtake you.  Let the heart adore you and thrash you and lay you down to yourself.  Let the Life be in you.  In every cell of you.  Pushing and growing and expanding and making.  Making something of you.  Making of your heart.  Making through the tension.

Sit with the tension.  Yours.  Mine.  Ours.  Just sit.  Just be.  The tension.  The pulse.  Of everything.

The emergence of life through the tension of living is the most miraculous thing!  Every moment, every second of every day you are, I am, emerging, from something, from somewhere, from some state of being, into another.  Our cells, our breath, our thoughts, our feelings, our ways, our waves, are in constant motion.  We may choose, knowingly, or unknowingly, to go back to the same state, the same way of being and doing and thinking and feeling, or we may choose, to pick the different one, the one that is ringing its little bell, flashing its subtle self, briefly, in the midst of the movement to the next moment  –  and if we catch it, if we hone ourselves to catch it, this beckoning to the new and vibrant and full-of-promise next step, our lives are forever changed.  And if we catch it more than once, several times, becoming committed to catching it, we are forever transformed out of this old choosing and into this new way we so want.

Willingness to feel this tension, this creative force that beats within you all the time, willingness to feel, this is your place of immense power, your place of pulse, of living in conjunction with the life force of everything, everyone, everywhere.  Feel it.  Feel the beautiful tension of love, and want, and need.  Feel so that it opens you and breaks through your walls of comfort sticking you like glue.  Feel its flow, its amazing magical gyration that can melt you with a drop of your tear, a pounding of your heart.  Sit.  Be in it.  Be in it now, as you are.  Your breakthrough, amidst this tension, your making of the next moment, in partnership with this force, this is your divine gift to the life that wants to live you.

I have so much gratitude to the inspiration of Crystal Pite and her creation of Emergence, and the dancers and creative team of
