Deep within you is a child begging to have fun. Where is it written that grownups can’t have fun? Whether work, romance or meditation, if you’re not having some fun maybe you’re doing it wrong.
A message from my Joy Guide, Christopher.
OpEd: Today’s message is my spiritual koan. A koan is a riddle in Zen Buddhism to show the logical mind’s inadequacy to bring about awareness or enlightenment. Fun is my koan.
Fun seems to be a foreign concept to me. Heck, I don’t even recall having too much fun as a child. For me, I can comprehend fulfilling, satisfying and challenging, but fun. Argh.
Helping someone get past the barriers of their mind and live a life of their choosing, that’s fun for me. Being able to assist someone in finding harmony in their physical body is fun to me.
How do I know? I must be because it’s been the only constant in my life since 1987. The people come and go. But there I remain teaching and preaching what I’ve found that works.
My frustration is that I’m not perfect in my abilities and practices. Nor do I completely understand every aspect of my job and capabilities. But I do not that I help people along their path to the best of my ability.
I am accepting that my version of fun is from a slightly different point of view. But isn’t that the point, after all? To live your life according to you criteria and no others.
Go out and have some of your version of fun today. After all, you’re the only judge that matters. What is your spiritual koan?
