Great blessings can come out of any difficulty when wisdom is used for personal growth.
Wisdom is the third step in JOURNALriffic’s 4 Steps of Discovery.
A principle is a natural law.
There are laws that govern the physical world, like gravity,
and laws that govern happiness in human interactions, like love, respect, and honesty.
This month, we have been exploring the principle and power of
the example of SERVICE.
By doing so, we refine our emotional state of heart to
improve our sense of well-being and enrich our meaningful relationships.
By integrating these principles, we strengthen ourselves, our family and family lines.
INspired Thought: “As you quiet your mind and follow your thoughts, keep a non-critical perspective, and remain open to the path of thought that is unfolding to your awareness — then answers will emerge. Discernment (good judgment and keen insight) is needed as wisdom is applied to the thoughts and decisions of your life. …You possess an inner knowledge that will help you identify those things that are truly in your own best interest – in a self-nurturing, rather than selfish, self-demeaning or self-destructive way. You must make a decision as to what to do, do it, and then learn from the results. Was it in your best interest or not? If not, make a different choice next time. Overcome any fear of making mistakes by feeling the soul-stretching, yet personally liberating, benefits of moving forward and gleaning wisdom.” –Carolyn Calton, JOURNALriffic
Thursday JOURNALriffic Guided-journaling Prompt
Remember that life is happening for you, not to you. It’s the lessons we learn from adversity that help us grow and remember who we really are. With that perspective, ponder upon the principle you’ve chosen, and seek wisdom.
- Think of an experience in your life in which this month’s principle or its absence played a role. Ask yourself, “Did I identify the opportunity for growth in this experience and use my conscience-guided wisdom to grow personally?”
- As part of your personal history, write down the wisdom you gleaned and the insight you gain as additional understanding comes forth. Use your own words just the way they come to your mind.
- Reflect upon the principle, notice your sincere desires to progress and then set your intention to receive other ideas, insight and strength that will help you to continue to grow. Remain open-hearted and open-minded to receiving further enlightenment as it comes.
Turn your pain into purpose.
Live in alignment with principles that govern happiness.
Follow your desires to help, not hurt, yourself and others.
Elevate your thought patterns, habit patterns and family patterns.
