Come lets Dance...

    I have a small four year old brother his name is Rohan. I was thinking and talking to God and to myself in balcony suddenly he came and went back dancing in a weird style and I was reminded of my childhood.
    I was reasoning in my mind what made him dance? Then as I was pondering on it I thought to myself what stops me from dancing? And that’s where I again learned the lesson and the difference is may be our age/maturity/thinking/worrying/rational thinking and etc. But I agreed basic difference was enthusiasm and being simply free for which above given barriers should not affect. He is energetic and free because he doesn’t have to think much about life perhaps for him dancing is an integral part of living for him. But what about you and me the so called grown ups why are we acting so strict and matured? are we not allowed to move the body and shake it up as we wish. No! wait you are Christian you are not allowed to act weird! You are suppose to have a long face and Hallelujah! on your mouth always? Maintain some discipline some basic decorum, aren't we called to be different?
    Why are we sad? Why that long face or are we too busy chasing an American dream. Even if we are busy have we ever stopped and asked why so work so hard? What do you earn? Don’t you want that leisure and fun at the end of the day? Or we are bond slave of work and peer pressure? Or is it that we don't have liberty to enjoy. Why is that when we think of entertainment someone else have to perform for us, may it be the cricket team or other celebrities dancing on the idiot box. Or you know pay and go to theatre to see the professionals dancing and then to comment “Oh! my isn't it so sweet!”. But what about you? Can't you dance?
    But if we are happy and we have to show what should we do. If we are free and indeed not slave to anything then what is stopping you? Come lets break this unmade and untaught but never changing rules and regulations and as the Cadbury Gems advertisement says “रहो उमरलेस (Raho umarless)’’(stay ageless). Come on the dance floor and lets move the body! Lets dance again! Let the storm of happiness that you have received from God be visible with your actions.
    I remember what King David “I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes” Because he said he was dancing for the Lord and how joyful and pleasant it is to know the God and rejoice in Him. And what does David says in Psalm 30: 11 “You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,” Do we need any more reason than this to dance and rejoice in our Lord. He have filled our hearts with overflowing joy and love. Should not that aroma spread in the world. Don't store that love in your hearts just let it flow.

P.S.: Here dancing doesn’t necessarily means Physical dance but it means to break free.To be calm and in peace and to do the things you love like for example: write, cook, sing, ride a bike, gardening, take a trip or simply just be yourself.
