Journey of Gratitude- Why? 04.08.00

Journey of Gratitude has begun! Welcome! Today–the first preliminary day–think and write about what you hope to explore for yourself during this Journey. What would you like to learn from gratitude? What would you like to learn of gratitude? How would you like to evolve through gratitude? What are you here to learn?

After thinking about this for a bit, just write some thoughts down. This exercise will give purpose and direction to your Journey. Then forget about what you wrote. Trust the process. Let the Journey be. Throughout the Journey, you want to be reminded of why you’re doing it, your writing will be there for you.


For several years I’ve been working with the idea of Divine Perfection. In fact, now that I think about it, this idea of Divine Perfection was embedded in the very first Guiding Thought I ever wrote: Journey of Purpose, Day 01:

There is a Perfect Spiritual Idea of Perfect Fulfillment. Your Inner Divine Mind Knows every form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that fulfills your desires. When you are diligent about maintaining your focus of desire on the loving benefit and fulfillment of all sentient beings, Divine Substance–which is the source of Spiritual Idea’s manifestation–flows through you and externalizes in your experience. Divine Presence appears as the perfect fulfillment of every single form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that you could possibly desire.

When I embody the Divine (more and more), the more attuned I am to Its Perfection, the more aligned I am with Its expression, the more consistently I can live as myself, expressing that Divine Perfection.

In this context how could I not be simply grateful…for everything?

With the Divine pouring forth, expressing in my life through me, as me, everything is perfect. It’s just up to me to maintain my channel in as clear and pure a way as possible, in order for that perfection to flow through.

Thus why I am doing Journey of Gratitude: to pour forth Divine Love (the substance of Perfection) in as clear and pure way as possible and thereby be grateful for ALL Life, all experiences, ALL All.

So be it.
