Welcome to Journey of Purpose! Today, the second preliminary day, we “get serious” with our commitment. Now is the time to think about what you are willing and able to do, in order to fulfill your Why. Then commit to it. Today in the dedication, we also offer our efforts to something greater than ourselves.

Journey of Purpose – Commitment and Dedication
My commitment to this Journey of Purpose is much like my commitment to prior journeys, to participate fully, and joyfully!
I will dedicate time each day to contemplate the guiding thoughts for the day, and to express in writing, drawing painting, etc. my feelings, thoughts, and responses to the guiding thoughts. I commit to posting these responses on a timely basis. I will renegotiate any commitments that I am unable to keep.
This commitment is to me, to Susan our host, to any others on this journey, and to the Divine Spirit within us all.
I dedicate this Journey of Purpose to all who seek meaning in their lives. I dedicate my efforts to all those on their paths, may they find purpose in their journeys. I dedicate all merit from this process to the benefit of all sentient beings, including those who are homeless, sick or hungry.
For my commitment, I am going to do something new. Normally, after Journey of the Heart, during which I have painted/drawn/colored “my heart out”, I leave the paints and colors, and return to my first love, words.
For this Journey, I remain committed to words, yet, I will also maintain my heart energy by continuing to paint.
What I post here will be primarily the paintings, but I also commit to writing daily, even if those writings are not posted. Adrienne Rich said, “writing is revision”. So, I will include in my writing for this Journey both new writings, and re-visioning previous writings, for the ultimate goal of publishing the Journey Books.
To this end, I commit to listening to (or reading) the Guiding Thoughts for a minimum of 5 minutes each day, and painting/coloring while doing so. I also commit to writing for a minimum of 60 minutes each day for the Books.
I dedicate my thoughts, words, actions and all their effects to my/your/our Highest Being, with deepest gratitude that I may serve the One/All.
The Guiding Thoughts audio for this Journey will be found here.
Written Guiding Thoughts will be presented daily.
