Rilke wrote the poetry collection "To my Celebration" at the age of 20. In addition to his well-known topics such as "Angel" and "Rose", Rilke describes the silence experience that connects people with creation and with God.
“Every work of art, including dance, arises from meditation. ”
Rilke, the poet of longing, addresses our most secret wishes. He knows how to give language to the hidden secrets of life, without thinking that one can capture these secrets with words, however deep they may be. (“I am so afraid of people's words....” R.M.R.) Music and dance bring us closer to this secret, which ultimately lies within ourselves. In dance, especially in the meditation of dance Sacred dance, we encounter this innermost structure that challenges us to find our own center by retreating into silence; This experience gives rise to creative impulses and a lightness of life. This experience gives us creative impulses and a lightness of life that is full of gratitude. The silence experience turns pain into joy. There is no separation. Everything is giving and taking at the same time. "
This is longing: living in the chaos
and have no home in time.
And these are wishes: quiet dialogues
of daily hours with eternity.
And that's life. Until from yesterday
the loneliest of all hours rises
which, smiling differently than the other sisters,
is silent toward the Eternal.
