Well, I haven't finished "Ask and It Is Given" but I picked up the Well Being Cards that have quotes from the book. Also, the pictures are beautiful. What's funny is that I have the cards with me at work. I often shuffle them at my desk and then randomly look at one. On one side is a short saying such as "seeking acceptance hinders my joy". On the reverse side has a mini paragraph speaking about whatever was on the front side.
I really love the idea of searching for and living in pure joy. That can really mean anything: being joyful. Also, I do believe in sending out your vibration and getting back a similar vibration. I recently interviewed for a new job. The vibration from this possible new position was fantastic. Everyone had this nice vibe. Where I work now, a lot of my co-workers are unhappy and you can tell!
The only thing that stinks about the job I interviewed for is this:
1. I'm really not interested in being someone's admin.
2. The commute is 4 miles farther away than my current job in the city.
3. I'd have to learn something new that I'm not interested in.
My conclusion? I'm going to seek my joy. What are my joys?
1. reading fantasy books
2. playing piano
3. helping people on the computer
4. drawing and doodling and other artsy things
5. writing music - though I haven't done it in ages
6. taking martial arts
7. learning computer stuff
8. working on my self
Really the top three have always been music, art, and writing (oh yeah, I forgot to add writing). I cycle between the three off and on. Then when I want to get in shape, martial arts comes back. And there's also yoga, too. My body LOVES yoga. Oh, and there's spirituality and stuff (I say stuff a lot). But that almost falls into the working on my self category.
Okay, I'm just rambling. I'll write more later.
