Linda Adsetts is here with her weekly Go for the Joy message from The Group. Enjoy!
I realize as I write this that my sense of whimsy is pretty much dormant. But, I am smart enough to hang around my whimsical friends. One of them leaves a special treat in her garden, for the fairies. Another one creates quilts with whimsical designs that remind me of my childhood imagination. Whimsy is a valuable commodity in our world and until now, I hadn’t given it much thought. Whimsical people are often creative people. They are the ones whose inner child lives close to the surface. They write children’s books, make fantasy movies, paint images of other worlds and design homes that look as if they belong in a fairy tale, the one the other writes about. I love fairy tales. Where oh where has my inner child gone?
The Group assures me that if I love fairy tales that my inner child is not far away, merely in hiding. And that is how it is with most of the population landed on planet earth. That is changing as the new ones come in. They will not let you forget who you are-a whimsical being at the heart of you. The children remember what they are capable of. They will happily educate you on the most joyous way to proceed. They are not concerned with the specifics, except when it comes to remembering, how important imagination is, when it comes to creating! Don’t be silly they will tell you! Remember this and this and this as you engage with them side by side. They can spot a phoney a mile away. If you are going to engage in play with them then you need to set aside your adulthood and become like a child again. Then both of you can have some pure unadulterated fun!
Tea parties with fairies? Check! Dinner with a queen? Check! Swimming with mermaids and dolphins? Check! Fighting the monsters in the closet? Check! Cardboard race cars? Check! Castles under the blankets? Check! Broomstick horses and cardboard swords? Check! Do you remember those times? Each of you has had those moments and those of you that haven’t forgotten or who want to remember are the ones who write the books, make movies and create music to help others and themselves, remember. They are the ones who grow up to create whimsical creations that cause others to remember. They are the ones who cause you to remember who you are.
Their movies, musica and books act like a clarion call to the child in you. Come over here and remember-if only for a short time-do it often enough and you will never forget.
At the core of you-you are, each and every one of you-magnificent beings of light and love. Magnificent beings of light and love do not take themselves seriously unless it is about light and love and whimsy and creating and did we say love? It is all about love.

Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,Where Faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent. The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light, The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Good Night.
