+ The habit of being happy enables one to be freed, or largely freed, from domination of outside conditions.
-- Robert Louis Stevenson

+ Change is the only constant and it’s our job to delight in it. Go with the flow. At times you can be the change agent. More often you simply allow change to happen, changes which are constantly coming at you from all directions. It’s OK. Better than OK, delightful. When you are experiencing life in the soul realm, you are always experiencing life as delightful, as a delicious feast, a celebration, a party, an adventure. This is bliss. How sweet it is.

It’s wonderful to reach these Journey of the Soul practices of Simplicity, Delight and Heavenliness. But even the first stage of these practices, the Journey of the Mind practices. can offer many tastes of heaven. Stillness can turn into Simplicity. Detachment can turn into Delight. Humility can turn into Heavenliness. Any one of these practices can be delightful. So, celebrate. Enjoy. Be glad all over.

Delight can be expressed as gratitude. Being thankful for life’s many gifts is a delight in itself. Pause here to become aware of so many blessings which have come your way and continue to come your way. If you are not smiling, laughing, or even dancing at this point, then you simply haven’t given enough time and effort to simply being grateful.

The practices of Simplicity and Delight come easily once Stillness, Silence, Solitude, Detachment, Discernment and Devotion have become regular practices. I can’t emphasize enough how stillness is the key to heaven. Simply be still and amazing things happen sooner or later. It can almost be said that the rest of the practices come as gifts, as amazing grace, once the practice of stillness is achieved.

You are delightful. You are simply heavenly. You are amazing, fantastic, wonderful. You really are. That’s the truth.

+ 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  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. You can also be inspired by their Twelves Gallery on Joy

+ Joy will come up again very soon in these explorations since it is the second of 9 heavenly attributes we will be exploring.

+ 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
