My response to Carpe Diem’s Sparkle of Joy: introduction and first ‘task’
Chèvrefeuille has been explaining the meaning of Tantra. Apparently, through Tantra, we can release ‘Kundalini energy’, which can set us free. He tells us that in Tantra, the freeing of the Kundalini energy is called the ‘Sparkle of Joy’, a kind of otherworldly euphoric experience.
He goes on to explain that the goal of this new Sparkle of Joy feature is to give words to our innermost selves and our deepest thoughts; the words can give us a Sparkle of Joy and free our Kundalini energy. The Sparkle of Joy can be seen in the smallest things in nature, like an ant or like the Shepherds Purse (in the haiku by Basho), in other words, in the beauty of the world around us.
