Journal Practice: Discovering Values and Higher Purpose

June 6, 2012

The cornerstone of knowing and aligning thyself is mindfulness. Even if you have no other practice than mindfulness alone, you will, over time, create the level of self-awareness you need to find alignment. 

Mindfulness alone is sufficient—that is the good news. The better news is there are also other ways to help you clarify your values and higher purpose to yourself. One way is to tell them to other people. Another way is to journal about them. 

Do a journaling exercise with one of both of these suggested prompts: 

  • My core values are...
  • I stand for... 

If you will take the time to do this it will illuminate what you really intend to offer the world in an aware and mindful fashion.
