“We're so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.”
Joseph Campbell

Rapture is the state of being “carried away” or so deeply absorbed in an activity that we forget the ordinary demands of life. It is a state of expanded awareness, or being transported into a state of deep satisfaction. As lofty as this description seems, the reality is that rapture is to be found in the most ordinary of experience and things as well as in the most beautiful and sublime.
Take some time today to recall and write about a time when you were in a state of extreme happiness. Try to describe the details of the experience in detail, including the environment, who was present, what you were wearing and feeling.
Remembering moments of happiness is an effect method of practicing being alert and receptive to experiencing them again.

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
