“Often, narrow-minded people say that dancing is sacrilegious. They think that God gave us the music—not just the music we make with our voice and instruments, but the music that underpins all life—and then forbade us to listen to it. Don’t they see that all nature sings? Everything in this universe moves in rhythm – the beating of the heart or the wings of birds, the wind on stormy nights, the blacksmith at his anvil or what an unborn baby hears in his mother’s womb – everything participates, passionately, spontaneously, in a magnificent melody. The dance of the whirling dervishes is a link in this perpetual chain. Like the drop of water that carries the whole ocean, our dance reflects and veils the secrets of the cosmos.”
