Play: When to be Spontaneous and When to be Still

Share it Please

Creation is the play of Life upon Itself, through Divine Self-Imagination.
SOM pp. 131

May I look on all beings with the eye of friend,
May we look on one another with the eye of friend.
The Rig-Veda

          It is a misconception to think that all of life must be entered into seriously.  Nature is filled with a sparkling joy that speaks of vibrant happiness and playfulness.  Wisdom allows us to know when to laugh and when to cry, when to be spontaneous and when to be still.  Far too often, however, laughter and spontaneity are set aside in favor of serious business.

          How will the Spirit of joy release itself into our world, if we do not also practice our play?  If we have no time to be frivolous, no time to color, no time play, how will the Spirit of creativity unlock in us those answers that we have not found through our most serious and exhausting searches?

          Life is God in expression, and It is calling us to come out and play, to sing and dance with joy, to be that expression, always!  Should we not trust ourselves more to know when to laugh and when to be still?

Today I release the joy that is within me.  That joy enlivens all who come into it's field of reach.  That joy is Spirit within enjoying It's creation.  I am one with that joy.  I give thanks for my life and all that is in it.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
