The next four weeks we will be exploring some ideas about joy.
This phrase comes from Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. In her memoir, she cites that she wants to practice diligent joy. What kind is that, I wondered?
What is so interesting to me about this phrase is her use of the word diligent. The word comes from Latin roots meaning attentive. And therein is the key to joy: attention.
Are you paying attention to what gives you joy? [I smiled as I wrote that because writing Seeds gives me joy.] If you are, it’s easier to be joy-filled. If you’re not, change your attention. Attend to what gives you joy, Beloved, and you practice diligent joy.

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.
