SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 193

This is the daily exploration for Monday, July 11, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF DELIGHT


+ When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
-- Jalaluddin Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks

+ Fellow explorers, we are now in the process of transitioning from spiritual practices to heavenly attributes.  Delight is a practice which comes close to getting us into a miraculous, mysterious and marvelous heavenly rhythm.  The ten preceding practices will continue to be essential. Delight grows and grows as we practice, practice, practice all 12 spiritual practices: Stillness, Silence, Solitude, Simplicity, Detachment, Discernment, Devotion, Delight, Humility, Healing, Holiness & Heavenliness.

The intention here is that these Journey of the Soul practices of Delight & Heavenliness become so ingrained that we can experience the 9 heavenly attributes of Abundance, Joy, Wisdom, Beauty, Love, Truth, Peace, Justice & Freedom moment after moment, breath after breath.   We have been exploring heavenly realms.  We are about to go further and deeper into these realms.  Tell your friends. 

+ 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 the 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.
