genuine connection

I guess
If I want a genuine connection
I dance in nature
and those who watch me
witness my dance
and then wish to discuss my dance, and my arthood/artistry --you know, really talk to me... they are my friends
but that genuine connection, it is in the dance, it starts in the movement poetry i hear in the world and produce in my body
yeah, then I can share that with others, then we can share a genuine connection
then I think
what about other moments of connection... yeah they are whole, but a bit lackluster
they are sparks
undeveloped
true perfect connection of genuine compassion --- that is created through life artistry
it just so happens, my art is dance.....

#DanceLife


For me, the life of the dancer is: continuous quickening. It is a divine dissatisfaction for more, a unrest, a movement to achieve, a conquering of endeavors, ideas, obstacles. The meaning of a dancer's life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, perform with excellence, to go up, to achieve, to conquer beauty and brilliance.

Moving Forward with Mr Universe

For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.



Hunger is a Quickening, a divine dissatisfaction for more, a movement to achieve, a conquering of endeavors, ideas, obstacles. 



Bodybuilding is much like any other sport. To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental approach.




The Dancer is an Athlete, an athlete of God. His purpose is not to compete against humans, but to fight against the laws of nature, and preform in the world of ideas and expressions.




The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that.


Poetics of the self define our outstanding virtuoso individuality.

Dancers Know that Perfection is Inconsistent

Love is a practice, not a destination, not a destiny.

Dance is a practice, not a destination, not a destiny.

Life is a practice, not a destination, not a destiny.


Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.


Destinies are milestones, therefore products of a practice, of a journey. Destines are achievements, Results, Law driven products of nature.

Destinations are places, in a journey. There are places in love, there are places in life, but love is not a place, and life is not a place.

One day you achieve perfection, but that perfection is locked in space and time. To achieve it again, you must act in a different way, no 2 perfections are the same. Perfection is a practice of invitation, of indetermantly inviting moments of perfections to be present.

Ethical Sex Guidelines

Ethical sex—a short guideline in 2014

1.        Consent. Both partners (or more partners) must come to having sex of their own free will, without pressure, alcohol, or domination from a form of power of currency. It must be from the sexual goodness, lust, desire, thirst, needs, love, excitement all their own.

2.       Communication. All persons need to communicate that the sexual encounter is happening, taking place, and it is of their own choice and desire, from their own freedom. Neglect is not an option. The sexual experience needs to be open and understood between the sexual partners, their significant others, and the sexual others. All partners need to seek “premiso” (permission, approval, check-in) first with their sexual-significant other. This avoids drama and ill will poisoning the sex.

3.       Self-Realness. All persons in sexual act need to communicate any restrictions, fears, standards, and health. This means disclosing what you do not want to do, what you do want to do, what is okay, what is not okay, and what, if any, STI one may or does have. Disclosing infection status is very important for trust, and allows all players to make their own choices.



4.       Risk Reduction & Safety. All sex should NOT be done with recklessness. All sex has a certain amount of risk medically, emotionally, socially, physically, mentally, economically, and spiritually. Using sexual protective tools (condoms, IUD, PrEP etc) is important and should always be used. However, to reduce risk, if protective tools are not used, that choice must be made mutually and of truth, trust, understanding, and with foresight of consequences.

so I dance

I feel empty, so I dance to fill the void. 
I am scared, so I dance to prepare for war. 
I feel sexy, so I dance to bring on the kisses. 
I am confused, so I dance to channel clarity.
