SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 160

This is the daily exploration for Wednesday, June 8, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF HOLINESS



+ Holy is the supernatural extra brilliant kindness of the soul.

Brother Wayne expands on this in his Day 4 page of The Mystic Hours (what an amazing book BTW):
This great American poet of the Beat generation, who embraced a wild Buddhist mysticism in his life and poetry, here identifies the ultimate quality that spiritual practice refines in us: utter kindness.  Every saint of every faith tradition espouses it and indeed actualizes it in his or her life. If you want to know with immediate and tangible recognition what God is like, examine kindness in yourself and others. It is your own deepest inner nature. It only has to be revealed. Let us discover in ourselves this heart animated by kindness.

+ This is the final post in the Journey of the Body and its’ practices of Solitude, Devotion and Holiness.  I know I could go on and on with Wisdom on the practice of Holiness but I’m sure you must realize by now that this practice is inclusive of all of the spiritual practices.  It is simply the practice of celebrating your Holiness which is your birthright.  In other words, every spiritual practice is holy and full of Joy and reveals kindness in all kinds of ways.
+ 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.
