Chop Wood, Wash Windows.: Journey of Purpose – 03.02.15

Guiding Thought

Your Purpose is to awaken to the Truth within you and share it. The Truth within you–your Inner Divine Mind–flows constantly and purely. As you go deeper in your awareness, the current of this flow broadens, strengthens, and brightens. It fills you and pours forth. This is your Source, the Source of all your good, all your happiness, and all your abundance. Awaken to your Inner Divine Mind and invite It to express Itself as every person and event that will increase your awareness of It.

The Guiding Thoughts audio for this Journey may be found here.

Steve (Meet Steve here.)

Today, my purpose was to wash windows. I kept thinking of our Journey of Purpose, and how washing the dirt off the windows is so perfect, a reflection, or perhaps an expression of the spiritual journey we are on. Today, my purpose is to awaken to the Truth within me.

It is said, before enlightenment, chop wood. After enlightenment, chop wood. Perhaps substitute doing the laundry for chopping wood. At any rate, that Truth within me is like a river flowing, never ending. It is always there but it is never the same. Each moment I have the opportunity to listen to my source, to hear the river flowing, to know my Purpose at that moment. All I have to do is wake up. Wake up when I’m doing the laundry, or washing windows, or making dinner, or when I am standing in line for coffee, or groceries.  Each person I encounter is there for a purpose. May I awaken to the Truth of that purpose.

When I visualize that river within me, it is always flowing slightly downhill, from left to right. I have no idea what that means, or if it’s even relevant.  I cannot imagine it going from right to left. It winds about in a natural lightly forested type setting, flowing over rocks here and there. I like this river. I like the Source within me.

Thank you.




This is how yesterday’s artwork “finished”. I like it! Listening to the Guiding Thought while creating art is so relaxing…



If you are curious here’s my writing from The very first Journey of Purpose, six years ago Day 15.  

Day 14: Commitment Reflection…still working on it. Is this “Divine Order”?
