SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 182

This is the daily exploration for Thursday, June 30, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF DELIGHT


+ In Thinking Body, Dancing Mind, C.A. Huang and Jerry Lynch observe that in Chinese writing, laughter is depicted by a character suggesting "a human with arms and legs flung wide apart, head up to the sky, vibrating with mirth like bamboo leaves in the wind" — the Wild Man and Wild Woman, anchored to the earth but also penetrating heaven, whose laughter echoes throughout the universe.

+ What an image.  Delightful. Joyful. Wild. Free. Spacious. Open.  Expanding.  Penetrating. 

Is that how you see yourself?  You are delightful, you know.  Yes, you.  Hopefully, these practices, particularly the Journey of the Soul practices we are currently exploring are opening up new ways for us to express our heavenly nature.  Do you laugh enough?  Do you smile enough?  Do you dance enough?  Do you sing enough?  Do you play enough? 


+ Delight is not one of the 37 Spirituality & Practice practices BUT put Delight in their Search Engine and you come up with 85 items including 67 quotes, 16 books, 1 practice, and 1 film as of 6/14/16.  Go to http://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/search/?q=Delight.  However, it is clear that Mary Ann & Frederic Brussat are big fans of Joy. Therefore, put Joy in their Search Engine and you come up with 2057 items including 867 quotes, 835 books, 160 practices, 11 teachers, 24 arts links, 29 e-courses, 98 films, 26 blogs and 4 traditions as of 6/14/16. Oh, and Joy IS one of the 37 spiritual practices. The photo is found there. You can also be inspired by their Twelves Gallery on Joy

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