Week 9 : Be Open to Direction
“We are always moving toward mystery.”
Reading: Finish reading Section V. This section includes some very moving stories. Choose one that touches you and reflect on it. Why has it touched you? What does it tell you about yourself? Consider if it is suggesting you do something or behave a certain way.
Kind Action: Being open to direction, allow an opportunity for kindness to find you and then complete it. Do this fully and mindfully, taking steps to complete it in the way you think it is meant to be done. See this action as having an integrity and it is your job to honor it. Additionally, try to act on any of the small, spontaneous opportunities for kindness that are presented to you this week.
Blessings Journal: The idea of this week, to be open to direction, makes your blessings journal all the more important. Note anything that you find meaningful or profound this week, be it a statement made, a newspaper article read, a scent, an aspect of nature, etc. Reflect on each of these things and ask yourself what is the message behind them. Those things that are profound to you are providing you direction.
