Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Staring at a blank page is like staring into a snowfield. The snow, untouched by civilization and unmarked by living creatures, blinds you for a few minutes, it glistens reflecting subtle shades of pure white and rainbows at odd angles. If you stare at the snow too long, you get lost in the interplay of light and shadow.

As the day wears on, you become awestruck at the beauty of the snow's perfection. You marvel at the way an oak tree cast its ebony shadow across the pure white snow. You watch the tree's shadow change, grow and shrink, as Earth turns and the sun moves from morning to evening. If you stand out in the snow too long without moving, you risk snow bite or freezing.

If you are fortunate, a red fox will walk across your line of sight. The fox will leave his footprints written in the snowfield. As you watch the fox move, the spell holding you in one spot staring at the snow is broken. You are free to go inside out of the cold and out of danger.

I must say,
writing 500 words a day
isn't difficult,
unless I'm attempting to write
on a single subject.

On Monday, October 28, 2013, I began posting my weekly goals at "Weekly Goals. On Tuesday, October 29, 2013 I began keeping track of may accomplished goals in this journal.

"O SON OF BEING! Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning;
for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds."

Robert A. Heinlein

It is enjoined upon every one of you to engage in some form of occupation, such as crafts, trades and the like. We have graciously exalted your engagement in such work to the rank of worship unto God, the True One. Ponder ye in your hearts the grace and the blessings of God and render thanks unto Him at eventide and at dawn. Waste not your time in idleness and sloth. Occupy yourselves with that which profiteth yourselves and others. Thus hath it been decreed in this Tablet from whose horizon the day-star of wisdom and utterance shineth resplendent.
Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah Revealed After the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Pages 21-29: gr 32

Istijlal (Majesty) 8 Jalal (Glory) 178 B.E. - Thursday, April 15, 2021

My Serenity journal has been an educations and has made me more appreciative of the Universal House of Justice (the world governing body of the Baha'i Faith. The Serenity Journal has sever different Bible verse from numerous translations of the Christian scriptures. At first, these translations appear extremely different from each other; although, if you compare the translation with the verse from the King James Translation of the Bible you can see that how the verse is a loose translation of the Holy Bible. I still wonder how authentic the translations are, but I can see there are similarities to the original King James Version.

The Universal House of Justice oversees and authenticates the translations of the Baha'i scriptures from the original Persian and Arabic that they were revealed in. Translations that have not been authenticated by the Universal House of Justice are referred to as provisional translation. For me, this is helpful when it comes to reading the scriptures. I can still read and mediation on the provisional translations knowing that their may be some slight changes when they are authenticated.
