Suffering

“The dancers are exhausted from their ordeal. They have not had anything to eat or drink for almost two days and many of the dancers have been dancing and blowing on their eagle bone whistles almost constantly. The inner strength of each dancer is tested during the first day and the sincere dancers will reach into their hearts and find the courage to give up all their strength to Acbadadea. Some dancers will hold back and not dance continually, they are afraid that they might not have the will to finish the dance; they rely only on their own power to give them strength. Those who are able to give up everything also show humility because they realize that it is not their individual strength that will support them, but rather the source of all power and strength: Acbadadea.”
