This is the daily exploration for Friday, May 13, 2016.

+ 3 quotes by Julia Cameron:

·         The quest for a story is the quest for a life.

·         When we are willing to be open-minded, art and beauty come flooding into us in a thousand small ways. When we let ourselves see the possibilities instead of the improbabilities, we become as flexible and resilient as we really are. It is human nature to create. When we cooperate with our creativity, using it to live within the lives we actually have, we surprise ourselves with our level of invention.

·         Although we seldom talk about it in these terms, writing is a means of prayer. It connects us to the invisible world. It gives us a gate or conduit for the other world to talk to us whether we call it the subconscious, the unconscious, the superconscious, the imagination, or the Muse. Writing gives us a place to welcome more than the rational. It opens the door to inspiration. It opens the door to God or, if you would to "Good Orderly Direction." Writing is a spiritual housekeeper. Writing sets things straight, giving us a sense of our true priorities.

+ The practice of Devotion is the key to a creative and joyful life.  There are, of course, many ways to be creative but if we are not devoted to it, the well runs dry awfully fast.  Please be devoted to what makes you creative and joyful.  The world needs your creativity and your joy.

Everyone has a story.  Writing can be a way to discover your story and then share it with others.  We need your story.  You are essential.

+ Spirituality & Practice offers many resources on the spiritual practice of Devotion.  You can explore Devotion even more with this link to “Devotion” on their search engine. You will find 2153 items as of 4/26/16.  And, of course, there is a Twelves Gallery of Memes on Devotion.  The Body also gets a lot of attention from S&P as you can see if you go to this link to “Body” on their search engine. You will find 1611 items as of 4/26/16.

+ I would love it if you offered a guest post on this practice or any practice.  And, I have work to do on my Devotion page.   Maybe you can help.  Send an email with the subject “Devotion” or “Guest Post” to John@abundancetrek.com.
