SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 189

This is the daily exploration for Thursday, July 7, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF DELIGHT


+
A vision without a task is but a dream
A task without a vision is drudgery
A vision & a task is the joy of the world.
 -- On an English church sign

+ The Bible says: “Without a vision, the people perish.”  Yes, we need vision and we need to do the work required to make the vision a reality.  What is your vision of a better you and a better society?  Not that you or society isn’t wonderful right now.  Nevertheless, improvement is always possible and often required.  Obviously, our environment is suffering.  There are deniers who think everything is OK.  But it isn’t.  However, we can joyfully restore our environment.  Let’s do it.  And let’s enjoy the beauty of the earth right now.

+ 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.
