SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 187

This is the daily exploration for Tuesday, July 5, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF DELIGHT


+
Smile,
breathe,
and go slowly.
-- Thich Nhat Hanh

+ What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
-- Joseph Addison

+ I am sure you can find many reasons to smile today, to be cheerful.  I haven’t heard that song by Ian Dury and the Blockheads for a long time.  But I thought of it just now as I wrote “reasons to smile.”  I think you can dance to it.  I know you can.

+ 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. 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 John@abundancetrek.com.
