SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 137

This is the daily exploration for Monday, May 16, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF HOLINESS

+ Holiness consists in doing the will of God with a smile.
-- Mother Teresa

+ Grace makes all these practices possible. The more we achieve an effective spiritual practice, the more we can open ourselves up to the amazing grace of God … and become holy.  But you have always been holy and always will be holy.  That’s who you are, a holy man, a holy woman, a holy child. You are the light of the world. Smile.

+ This is the first post in our exploration of the spiritual practice of Holiness, the ninth of the twelve Abundancetrek practices and the final practice of the Journey of the Body which began with Solitude and then continued with Devotion.  You may remember that the Journey of the Mind practices are: Stillness, Detachment and Humility (SE posts 1-64) and The Journey of the Heart practices are: SilenceDiscernment and Healing (SE posts 65-104).

+ Holiness is not one of the 37 Spirituality & Practice practices BUT put Holiness in their Search Engine and you come up with 460 items including 227 quotes, 168 books, 28 practices, 14 teachers, 12 arts links, 7 e-courses, 3 films and 1 blog as of 5/11/16.  Go to http://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/search/?q=holiness.

+ The Body gets a lot of attention from Spirituality and Practice as you can see when you go to a 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 Holiness Page.   Maybe you can help.  Send an email with the subject “Holiness” or “Guest Post” to John@abundancetrek.com
