Do you have spiritual advisors that you read or study or visit?
Many of my most important spiritual advisors are officially painters or poets.
The gift of literacy is that we get to read and study teachings from long ago…usually translated from another language.
Like this one:
“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it”
The Buddha said that*
Words and the transmission of ideas is nothing less than magical. Books and classes a necessary luxury.
Cut and paste copies of your favorite passages and sayings from books and put them in your journal.
Find photos or images of your advisors and paste those in, too.
Draw them over your words with pencil, crayon, pen.
Especially if you think you can’t draw.
*Or maybe Buddha didn’t say that. There is controversy around this quotes’ attribution.
It’s still a great quote to use as a journal prompt.
