TEXT
 
Day by day, hour by hour, weaving on life’s loom
Thoughts divine, feelings fine coming into bloom;
For the new love and light now prepare we ample room.
Every day think and say that light will come tomorrow;
Love is now on its way to banish fear and sorrow;
So we work and we pray for this new promised day.
(Repeat from “Every”)
 
Weaving thus we take and give nature’s gifts divine,
Learning daily how to live higher lives sublime;
Weaving thus we all receive the blessings of this time.
Day by day, hour by hour, weaving on life’s loom
Thoughts divine and feelings fine,
For the new life making room,
For the life which turns the night to day
And lights our upward way.
 

IDEA

We work out, we build something with persistence. Weaving is the only work/labour activity in the lyrics of Paneurhythmy.  We work under some binary conditions: with our mind and heart (by moving left and right), between two poles (by moving between two opposite positions), and in pair with our partner (by moving simultaneously in complementary directions to the inside and to the outside). In the activity of weaving the thread moves sideways left/right, and pushing mechanism – forwards; in the exercise this is performed with stepping sideways steps, followed stepping forwards. Some examples for processes and states in nature, person and relationships:

  • birds weave their nests in pairs;
  • on a loom we weave textile/carpets;
  • we work on/construct a product;
  • we work on our perfection and development;
  • we build good relationships;
  • in nature, the energy flow of electricity and magnetism between two poles is work;
  • when we have an opponent to our idea, we weave our thoughts between our viewpoint and his viewpoint;
  • when we have a subject of our attention, we weave our feelings  between their attitude and our sympathy.

“This exercise expresses the organic process within nature, the process of building. Does not a circulation of electricity and magnetism occur between the North and South Poles of Earth? This is expressed in this exercise through the crossing movements from left to right, and vice versa. Furthermore, polarity exists within every material particle. Between the two poles, electric and magnetic energy flows. These forces work within people as well. Every organ has its polarity. This exercise leads us to perceive, on the one hand, the constructive principle within nature; and on the other hand, it indicates one right way of introducing harmony and rhythm into this process both internally in us, as well as externally in the life of humankind” [Beinsa Douno, Paneurhythmy, p.79]

QUESTIONS

1. Text: Weaving is a metaphor as well: what example does the text provide? Write in your own beautiful words a sentence/ essay/poem about the “the loom of life”.

2. Drawing:Draw an illustration to the exercise. Draw a rug with your partner without lifting your pencils from the sheet, moving them forwards and sideways as in the exercise.

3. Questions: What activities require thread by thread efforts in order to achieve final result? How do you weave a good feeling/thought?

4. Experience: Tell us of situation and experiences when you have worked out something with persistency. What is the feeling?

5. Imagination: Imagine, while you play the exercise, that you and your partner work out a beautiful texture together.

6. Positive affirmations: Write your own positive affirmation for weaving. For example: We work out something nice together. I weave beautiful thoughts/feelings.

7. Quotes: People forget how fast you did a job – but they remember how well you did it (Howard Newton). We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning (Henry Ward Beecher).
