I'd never had that before, but at an especially rocky time, I decided to address letters to God in my journal. All I can say is that I got a particular sense of calm in the succeeding days that I had not experienced before. It was a sense of calm that I perceived to be generated from outside myself. I've always cherished time spent journaling and this is certainly another dimension for which to be grateful.
I've also always wanted to simplify--really for peace of mind. I still have a ways to go on that, but I've gotten rid of a ton of books and plan to keep it up. The less clutter around, the better I feel. This is particularly apparent if you've moved as often as I have (whoa, I have this much stuff?). I don't want to have a lot of things. In fact, I want to have very few material possessions, which would help me on my spiritual journey.
I feel some sense of urgency to fulfill my purpose. I don't know what that is but I am interested to find out. I am confident about being in the right profession but what else should I do? That is the mystery. Maybe it has to do with relationships with people I encounter?
My reading choices have reflected my deeper interest in spirituality. I've read a ton of near-death experience accounts as well as books by Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra.
