I’ve been attending a spiritual community called Sangha, and just before the new year, Dr. David, the spiritual leader gave us a challenge. This challenge was to look withing yourself and find a word/theme for the year. Every day, I pick a word using the in this theme. It sounds complicated but it’s really simple.
Theme for the year: Clarity
Rather fortuitous that clarity has seven letters for seven days of the week. When the theme is connected to the daily words, it creates an anagram and each week I will have a new one. Check out the chart to the right.
Now, I’m sure you’re wondering, what am I choosing these words for and why the theme and…and…and…
Well, this is were the Triple “E” part comes in. When I wake up in the morning I meditate on the word selected for the day, affirming that I will express, experience, and enjoy the attributes of this word as I go through my day. I am also exploring the idea of clarity; seeing things for what they are, being clear about where I am going…being on purpose.
Hopefully that clears up what I’ve been doing all week. I’ve been exploring these concepts as part of my spiritual growth process. I think when the year is over, and I look back at all of this, I will be amazed at all I have learned during the challenge.
