Dancing After the Music Stops

"And those who were seen dancing were though to be insane by those who could no hear the music."- Friedrich NietzscheThere is no hope; yet there is only hope.True happiness is being re-united with the cosmos.True spiritual gift is always free.May this book be the first step on the palliative care of the soul for you. Dancing on the upper deck of the Titanic as it is sinking is not reserved to the rich among us - actually, it probably belongs to the children of the light, those caring little about the monetary system, those wandering freely on Earth, knowing there is something more to life than we were led to believe. If reality is, well, real, then we ought to dive deep into it and experience the structure that composes it. Not understand, but experience the Game of Life. Sometimes, you'll win, sometimes you'll loose. Make it no factor. You'll have to keep going forward. Your attitude will determine the quality of your journey on Earth. Sometimes, you'll have to walk away. Sometimes, you'll have to hold the line. Sometimes, you'll have to run. Sometimes, you'll have to hanker on to the lifeline cause that'll be the only thing holding you from falling into the abyss. Sometimes, you'll have to cut that lifeline and plunge to the depth of darkness itself to experience rebirth. There is no dying without living. This spiritual field manual won't tell you when to cut or hold on to that line - pointers and arrows are the only thing I can provide you. But when you have a proper understanding of the Game of Life, the physics and the metrics behind the scene, then it'll be a helluva ride through the galaxies. No, not necessarily easy. Believe me: You don't really want easy anyway. You want meaningful. You actually want to know why the hell you're dancing through the worlds as you go through your cosmic journey. That why is so underrated yet so valuable. It'll be the anchor that conjures hope through the storm of life.

Dance Until the Music Stops

Life expectancy worldwide increased by thirty years in the twentieth century. Even so, many soon-to-be retirees don't expect to live decades beyond eighty. They typically haven't thought much about what their lives will be like after retirement, except to be glad to be done with rising at the break of dawn, punching time clocks, and fighting crowds on lanes or trains. But after two or three years of retirement, the days become dull, and their bodies become listless. In contrast, other retirees engaged with the world are seeking out fulfilling projects and programs. These people are looking for things to do-ways to use their newfound years to fulfill old dreams. Once they did, they did not describe life as a half full (or half empty) bucket; they needed two buckets to hold the summation of their lives! These are the people who inspired the writing of "Dance until the Music Stops." With personal experiences, research, anecdotes, insights, and humor, author Esther C. Gropper developed this guide to help seniors enjoy their retirement and learn the "what's what" of extended life.

Dance Till the Music Stops

To all my readers and everyone who buys this book, thank you! I know it's hard to write a story of your life when every life is a story-but maybe, because I had the courage and the drive to write my story, maybe you can now write yours. I know how hard it is to face challenges and wonder sometimes if you can ever make it. So, I didn't write this book because I'm rich or famous. I wrote this book to give you courage and hope and to let you know you are never alone in this big old world. If I can help just one person, then my life and this book will be worth it. I wrote this for the child facing months in bed for a disease they don't understand, for the single mother trying to keep it all together, for the wife who has to kiss a dying husband one last time, for the mother who hears her child is dying, for those with cancer facing chemo, for everyone who has ever been discouraged. I want to be your ray of sunshine and show you that you can go on and that life can truly be beautiful-one day and one step at a time. For as long as we wake up, we can listen to the music of life, and we can dance! So, dance till the music stops! Never Give Up and Never Give In You CAN reach the mountain top! No matter how tough LIFE seems, Just follow your dreams and Dance Till The Music Stops! Love, Joyce
