I saw in the news that a young Iranian girl had been arrested for dancing in public. What a shame she can't express her happiness and joy through something so simple as dance. I wonder if the Shakti energy of this physical movement is what makes the Iranian authorities deem it improper or indecent.
We all have a choice and a purpose. This brave girl's soul has chosen to make public a restrictive religious law. BUT, it's not just Iran. Remember the movie Footloose? This dance ban was in a town in the United States up until 1980. There are a few other countries with public dancing without a license bans.
Why am I discussing this today?
When I read the story I realized just how lucky I am. I said this to my husband and he said "you made some good choices," and that's it. My soul made a choice. All the same, today I am counting my blessings and embracing the joy that my freedom to dance and express myself affords me.
