Dancing in the shower

I had the most wonderful image in the shower this morning around dancing. In many cultures shamans and magicians are thought to derive part of their power from the fact that they have seen their death, which makes them not afraid because they know their death. I have not seen my death but I know my "impermanence partner". Just because I have seen its face doesn't mean I have to stop dancing. I can dance for a long time looking full on the face of my partner and coming into right relationship.
