A dancer’s healing
I am a professional ballet dancer, and last winter I was excited about the opportunity to take some classes with the person who’d been my first ballet teacher. One morning, I woke up with severe discomfort in both my hamstrings. I was concerned that while I had been stretching the evening before, I might have pulled those muscles.
As I had just been given wonderful opportunities to perform new roles in my dance company in New York, I was afraid this might keep me from this new opportunity. I immediately countered that thought by remembering that nothing could keep me from the progress and continuity of good that are available and accessible to everyone, as children of God, divine Love. I turned to what I have learned in Christian Science.
I prayed to know that my stretching the evening before, and all of my dancing, was an orderly and joyful expression of divine Mind and Love. This activity was a way for me to express purpose, dedication, and gratitude for God, which are all natural to my being. If my consciousness was so filled with love, the pure love that Christ Jesus taught, there could be no room for fear.
