SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 155

This is the daily exploration for Friday, June 3, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF HOLINESS


+ Appreciating and expressing the Real You is a vital dimension of the practice of Holiness.  Here are a few quotes from the S&P practice of You:

+ If you do not express your own original ideas, if you do not listen to your own being, you will have betrayed yourself.
— Rollo May quoted in The Soul of Creativity edited by Tona Pearce Myers

+ A thoroughly good relationship with ourselves results in being still, which doesn't mean we don't run and jump and dance about. It means there's no compulsiveness. We don't overwork, overeat, oversmoke, overseduce. In short, we begin to stop causing harm.
— Pema Chödrön in When Things Fall Apart

+ A great deal of chaos in the world occurs because people don't appreciate themselves. Having never developed sympathy or gentleness toward themselves, they cannot experience harmony or peace within themselves, and therefore, what they project to others is also inharmonious and confused.
— Chogyam Trungpa quoted in The Essential Chogyam Trungpa edited by Carolyn Rose Gimian

+ Remember: You are intimately, intricately, infinitely connected by a matrix of unconditional, unlimited uniting Love which is miraculous, mysterious and marvelous.  If you don’t appreciate and express your Real Self, the divine connection is not as complete as it can be.  So, enjoy being You right now, right here.  And: Breathe deeply. Breathe fully.  Be still. Be silent. Be centered.  Be grounded. Lighten up. Loosen up. Let go. Let God. Celebrate. Be glad all over.  

You are holy.  Yes, you.


+ 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.
