Of the many points that comes to mind to address this idea, it seems that it is best to understand wrestling and dancing in how it relates to each other in the art of living. Each has a partner that interacts with each other. The interaction varies by the difference of physical and mental capabilities.
Wrestling is usually regarded as the power of the physique where two can face each other of equal to various strengths in combat to make the opposing grows tired or be defeated. There is a winner and a loser. It may first seem as a competition, though what really hits me is that two warriors wrap each other with limbs to overpower another. Various techniques are tried by and by again until the fight is settled.
The art of living can intertwine as a wrestling match. We could be facing an opponent seeking to overpower another. The world is big and our mental seems to gear toward trying to be the top and in control. This makes it seem that the most powerful ways are to go for the best approach to enter the world before us. Though, a wrestling match can set us apart from being human. It turns us into head strong competitors fighting each other for gains.
In dancing, the role is to flow together in harmony. Dancers practice with each other to help the dance. The practice is not meant to have opposition. There is no tying each other up and going for three counts. Dancers dance, give a bow, and could raise their hands together waving to the audience.
Its hard to say what reality really is, though an emperor, Marcus Aurelius is one of the wisest philosophers known to mankind. Thus, a good source is a great start! The question is that should we let the art of living be more like wrestling than dancing?
The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing. – Marcus Aurelius
