The month of June has now passed through the sands of time and summer, in its fullness, has made its glorious entrance. July in America looms ahead of us like a giant Norman Rockwell painting. Most of us think of fireworks, vacations and road trips. Throughout this month, we  invite you to continue our meditation on holy leisure and the spiritual freedom  given to anyone who wants it. There are no prison bars within the soul and nothing can contain the wildness of God. All I am required to do is open my hands to the spacious silence and receive the divine spark burning invisibly deep and clean within the unlocked and open door of the soul. Our writers this month will give us examples of this truth as they share  some of the vacations and trips that have illuminated their lives.  May the holy leisure of this month make us embrace and appreciate each moment of life!
