Create something special . . .

All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why.” – James Thurber

Who am I? This is one of the most perplexing and mysterious questions you can ask yourself. It’s my hunch most of us don’t know the answer…. why? Too often we do not spend enough time getting to know ourselves.

When we want an intimate relationship, we spend lots of time with the other. We talk openly and share secrets; we reveal fears and disappointments, dreams and desires. We allow ourselves to be seen… the perfect and the imperfect. The same is true with getting to know ourselves. It takes time. Regular talks. Honest exchanges of vulnerability and truth.

It’s the journey that woos me every morning at 4:30. I sit at my window, light a candle, and begin writing. I ask anything. Then, write what I hear. After a while, I transition from my left brain to my right brain, and my spirit becomes clear. It’s healing. It’s clarifying. It’s essential… if I want to find my answers. After all, the spirit knows everything about me! And yours knows everything about you. Aren’t you curious?

The conversations are helpful, but not always easy. The spirit doesn’t know “easy.” It knows the truth. Sometimes it’s a tough resolve. Other times, it’s simple. No matter the content, it goes down on paper. The words flow from the pen, my hands transcribing my mind directly, one thought at a time. So I can understand it. Understand me.

If you want to know more about who you are and were created to become, I suggest you give journaling a try. Begin with a half a page every day. Start slow and form commitment. You will as you feel the difference. The process makes room, audio room, for you to stand in the open air with the still, small, faithful voice of your spirit.
