The 07/17/13 Joy Jar

17 Jul

The ‘Joy Jar’ exercise is over half-way complete. The exercise began after the ‘Mayan End-of-the-World’ thing didn’t happen. Moi decided to develop an attitude of gratitude. So far, the exercise is developing a ‘rhythm of life.’ Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is a rhythm of life.

Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time.
Miguel Angel Ruiz

“Jumping from boulder to boulder and never falling, with a heavy pack, is easier than it sounds; you just can’t fall when you get into the rhythm of the dance.”
Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

“Life has its rhythm ad we have ours. They’re designed to coexist in harmony, so that when we do what is ours to do and otherwise let life be, we garner acceptance and serenity. (285)”
Victoria Moran, Younger by the Day: 365 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul”
Plato

“everything has rhythm. everything dances.”
Maya Angelou

Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
Thomas Merton
