A collection of inspirational writings designed to reveal the delight in everyday moments challenges readers to discover their natural zest for life, enthusiasm for learning, and openness to spiritual awareness

Blackwell North Amer
In Out of the Blue, Mark Victor Hansen, coauthor of the phenomenal New York Times bestsellers Chicken Soup for the Soul and A 2nd Helping of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and Barbara Nichols with Patty Hansen show their devoted readers that living in delight is possible every day. This inspirational collection explains how the experience of delight opens us to compassion and spiritual awareness, and includes 52 "Delight Igniters" - ways to create happiness and share it with others. These igniters will help you catch that divine spark: Turn on Beethoven when you wake up in the morning and sing along with the Ode to Joy from the Ninth Symphony. Greet everyone on the elevator with "What a delightful day!" or, if you're naturally reserved, just think it "at" your fellow passengers, some of whom will surely hear it with their inner ear.
Out of the Blue includes stories by James Michener, Deepak Chopra, Brian Boitano, Wayne Dyer, Cathy Lee Crosby, Victoria Jackson, Wally Amos, and other well-known celebrities who have brought delight to the world. It also features stories by ordinary people who found delight in their everyday lives. Their personal stories demonstrate how we can contribute to the creation of a most desirable and entirely possible time - the Age perform Delight. Through the experiences of others, readers will learn that all forms of delight can help us transform our lives, from the most ordinary kind of delight we take in an exquisite flower to the cosmic mystery of eternal delight. Delight is always there, right in front of us, playing with us and encouraging us to follow it with hearts and souls, rejoicing on its path.
