In honor of the upcoming Chinese New Year which began on February 8, 2016, I’m dedicating the 2016 Mandala of the Year to the Monkey. Each month we’ll explore a trait or symbol of the monkey to explore how we can incorporate it into our own lives.
For Section 11 we look at the monkey energy of spritely.
To go about things in a spritely manner is to be lively and full of energy. Our ideal is to approach all that we do in a spritely way because it means that whatever we’re doing is making our heart sing. If it’s otherwise, than it behooves us to look more closely at what we’re doing.
As in the Konmari method of “tidying up” the clutter in our lives, we can also apply her system by checking-in with everything we do to ask if it brings us joy. If it does, great; otherwise stop doing it. In cases where stopping is not an option, then we can look at making changes or adjustments in our perspective so that it does.
Be the joy we want to experience in our lives.
Ponder this while coloring this month’s section of the 2016 Mandala of the Year.
