Are We Dancer... or Are We Human?

******************************Where we come from***************************** *************************************************************************** I guess it has been a couple of years since my Secondlife daughter Lala turned me onto the song below. Keep in mind that at age 68 seeing a groups name is, "The Killers" isn't likely to make me run to a site and either buy..or listen. In this case I did... and I'm glad. So often the lyrics to a song just all run together for me, and while I had listened to the words of this song, perhaps it has taken me all this time to hear something different. This time last year I was just about finished with preparations for my pilgrimage to India's four holiest Buddhist sites. That trip was a life changing experience for me and the way I think. So today when I listened to this song I heard something very different. "Are we dancer... or are we human?" Depending on ones view of life... most of us likely want to say we are human. As a Buddhist, this current body is merely a dancer through another incarnation... for me. BTW... in the grand scheme of things, being human is doing really well too. =^..^= And so it goes My love to you all, brinda Namaste नमस्ते
