The Jewel of Life: Introducing The Facet of Fun & Recreation
Fun & Recreation is a main facet in the Jewel of Life system, which is all about self-motivation and joy. Joy is a basic need and desire for all of us and it’s so important that we spend adequate time doing the things that we love.
Although life is for living, we often put our recreational activities at the bottom of the priority list. With our busy schedules it can be so easy to get caught up with work and chores and not make enough time for fun. Even if you love your job it is still important to have a clear distinction between work and play if you want to live a life of balance and bliss.
However, it’s not just about making the time to have fun, it’s also about allowing ourselves to be present in the moment. So often when we are doing things of a recreational nature we can be so preoccupied with everything else that’s going on in our lives that we struggle to enjoy what is going on in the here and now.
So Goddess, how much fun do you have in your life and are you making enough time to do the things that bring you joy? What activities do you actually enjoy doing and how often do you get to do them? Are you putting off the things you’ve wanted to do for ages or do you make a conscious effort to try them out?
Do you feel guilty for taking time out to just relax or do you dedicate ample time for recuperation? Is there a good balance between your work and play or do you do things in excess? Are you mindful in your experiences or do you find it hard to be present?
Below are some suggestions to help you gain more clarity and understanding when working with the facet of Fun & Recreation…

Explore The Core Lesson
Every facet of the Jewel of Life system has an associated Core Lesson of Self, which when honoured helps us to create true happiness and fulfilment. The core lesson of Fun & Recreation is self-motivation because when we learn to motivate ourselves we are able to find joy, peace and happiness even in the most challenging times.
Often when things are difficult we stop doing the things that bring us joy because we don’t feel up to it or we believe that we should be focussing on more ‘serious’ tasks.
However, when we take time out from our worries and work towards more bliss-filled experiences we create more inner peace. This not only reduces our burdens mentally but it also raises our spirits and opens us up to find solace and solutions.
