Words of Wisdom
Matt Sutherlands journal offers daily inspiration
By Robert Downes
Consider the following quote and how it might apply to your own life:
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything in the universe. -- John Muir.
That bit of wisdom by the legendary California naturalist is one of the quotes in Matt Sutherlands new book, Go Seek: Journaling to Spiritual Fulfillment. The idea is to think about what Muir said about the interconnectedness of the universe and write out your own thoughts on several blank journal pages that follow the quote.
To aid you in that endeavor, Sutherland also includes some thoughts on how physicist Albert Einstein viewed the connections between all elements of the universe, be it energy, matter, space or time.
Spiritual stuff? Thats what Sutherland, 46, is hoping readers and journal writers will get out of his project, which has been published by Spirituality & Health Books, a firm launched by himself and his wife, Victoria, who is also the guiding light behind ForeWord Magazine in Traverse City.
