Disappointing Dance Partners

SNAP OUT OF IT!
When dance or life partners upset us, THIS IS A NORMAL FACT OF LIFE.

When something goes wrong, don’t look at your dance partner with that “evil eye” – yes I’m talking about YOU.
Instead, see what lesson there is for you to learn from the experience, brush yourself off and MOVE ON.
The people that disappoint us most in life are truly our Spiritual Teachers in disguise. Remember, it’s now WHAT happens to that matters, it is HOW YOU HANDLED IT that people will REMEMBER. (more…)

If you are a believer, don’t forget Who is “allowing you” to be healthy and love this process. (more…)

A great example of what dance can mean to a man is my friend’s poem

– Francisco Martinez, born-again christian, husband, father, and AMAZING Salsero

Spirit Dance ** ~ By Francisco Martinez

The leather of his shoes, sharply, caresses the
wooden floor as energy speeds his feet through a
moment in time. Whoa is he when such electricity
hits the air.Mighty eyes watch from above with pleasing
compassion, as the worshipping dancer displays
his celebration to his Father. (more…)

What if my dancing causes another to stumble?

…then your friend does not belong there with you and they should leave.

You’ll meet them another day…. elsewhere.
Like any sport, Salsa dancing is not for everyone.

You can leave with them, but do not let them judge you, lest they be judged.
The love of music and dance, and the expression of it with you and an awesome dance partner is NOT GIVEN TO EVERYONE by God.

We all have a purpose and a Mission here on earth – and only God knows how everything is pieced together – to work PERFECTLY for HIS will, and His will, alone. (more…)

Revelation and the Internet

Revelation and the Internet
The Beginning of the End of the World, as we see it unfold before our eyes…*
Edie’s Personal Discovery
By Edie, The Salsa FREAK* Copyright, 1999

When I was in Israel in 1998, I noticed the peculiar-looking Hebrew writing and alphabet written all over the place.* It was written “backwards” to me.* In other words, the strange symbols were read and written from right to left, instead of left to right, like I’m accustomed to.

In Jerusalem, I was impressed at how the stories that I read over the years in countless Bible study courses I’ve taken, were all coming to life right before my eyes.* The thousands of graves up the Mt. of Olives, the 2nd coming or first coming of Christ (depending on what religion you are…) the fighting over the Temple, the controversy of the rebuilding of the Temple, the strange electric energy in the city, the Via de la Rosa (the path Christ walked carrying his cross)… it all just took my breath away.* I was overwhelmed with excitement, sorrow, and curiosity.* (more…)

Christianity and Salsa???
By Edie, The Salsa FREAK

Letter from a Christian Salsero named Josia…
Hi Edie, just wanted to ask if you are Christian and how I can use Salsa as a means of reaching the world through dance ministry.

Dear Josia,
Yes, I do believe that Jesus was God in the flesh, and He is the only way to the Father.

    • John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    • John 1:14 – And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.

Salsa Cured My Addictions

Click image for larger version Name: bible-devil.gif Views: 1 Size: 58.5 KB ID: 4972

“Dear Edie…
I was just reading through some of your stories, and I stumbled across your Christianity and Salsa section.
I have to say, that after reading through your words – every one of them resonated with me in every way. Thank you!
I wanted to open up and let you know that Salsa cured the following for me:

 

    • I used to smoke – now clubs don’t allow smoking, and that is where I spend most of my time, so now I quit smoking.
    • I used to drink – but it inhibited my dancing and spins, and my friends started complaining about my lead, so I quit drinking.
    • I was addicted to porn – but I started spending so much time at Salsa clubs, I would come home trashed and had zero energy to spend time on the Internet – no more interest. (the real thing is FAR better).
