The Initiatory Path of Spiritual Journaling


Our society lives in a hurry. This exploration of ourselves is one way to slow up down long enough to contemplate the reason that we inhabit our skins.

Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt  is an antidote to a societal problem – that of living in a rushed state – driving too quickly on interstates, staying too late at work, living from a “To Do” list, and letting the ticker-tape of the day fall endlessly over our eyes as we toss and turn, trying to sleep. This frenetic state represents a fall from grace. In essence, we must return to the Garden before the fall, wherein we lived in harmony with nature and ourselves. We must stop the endless rushing and patiently explore the metaphors of our lives to glean its meaning. If we do not, we lose not only creativity and passion, we lose ourselves, we lose sight of our vision, and we lose our connection to God.

One way to begin living a more meaningful life again is through contemplative journal writing, memoir, and poem-making. The dreams, the metaphor and the symbol speak to us using subconscious images that nuance life . As we learn to focus on the particulars of experience and to dig through layers of detritus , we can excavate our essence and, thus, find the archaeological gold that is the buried treasure of our relationship to the Divine.

to live, to love, to know,

to change and embrace the infinite.
I shall not forget my becoming..
