A Month for Sourcing Ourselves in Joy
January 1 to February 9, 2023
Welcome to this new year and the joyful month of seeking, finding, and celebrating the thousand and one sources of joy. Here is a playful possibility
Imagine this scene:
Animals, birds, angels, and other creatures gather together with the idea of singing praise—each in her own language—to a mysterious creator. Timelessly singing with delight and joy about the creation. And wanting more of it!
These wise early beings sensed that singing exuberant, extravagant praise supports inspiration. In this case it inspired laughter and this laughter from their creator exploded seven times, bringing about seven amazing new creations: including light; water; holy beings — one who manifests needs and desires, and another to sustain these manifestations; then came time; then justice; and, triumphantly, the Soul to infuse all creation.
Think of praise as multiplied gratefulness. We sing out gratitude. We sing out praise to life for life, for trees , for ideas, for chocolate, for music, for beauty, for happiness, for water, for food, for children, for grandchildren – all the things that you encounter in your day. Just saying thank you is prayer enough, say the mystics. But we want to generate more joy, so we amp it up with praise. And you know what? It’s fun!
So, during this month, amp up your joy by singing praise, in your own language, as only you can, to everything created and everyone who created it. Sing praise until it makes you laugh. And notice what you might create by laughing.
Joy in the World
And in me.
Praise, Praise. Praise
