Friday, June 17, 2016


This is the daily exploration for Friday, July 1, 2016.

The clouds above us join and separate.
The breeze in the courtyard leaves and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can stop us from celebrating?
- Lu Yu

+ 183 down, 183 to go.  I am delighted that we have reached the halfway point in these 366 Spiritual Explorations posts which I am offering on a daily basis during the leap year of 2016. But, of course, there is nothing to prevent you from benefiting from these posts at any time.  So, if you are reading this and it isn’t  July 1, 2016 but some other day in 2016 or beyond, just relax and celebrate. You are fantastic. You are amazing. You are delightful. Yes, you.  If it July 1, 2016, I am so glad you are reading this and exploring with me as I write and upload these posts.  I am writing on June 14, 2016, a “bright, sunshiny day” in central New York. “I can see clearly now.”

Let’s be more and more delighted as we explore heavenly realms together here on earth and in the mysterious beyond.  “Who can stop us from celebrating?”
