BKeeney Software Inc. announces the release of Spirit is Calling, a daily spiritual journal co-authored by Rev. Chris Michaels and Dr. Edward Viljoen. Spirit is Calling seeks to grow spirituality by encouraging daily journal entries that allow the user to track their spiritual growth over the course of a year. The journal tracks thoughts and reflections on a daily basis and allows the user to return to previous entries at any time.
Spirit is Calling features a perpetual calendar allowing the user to make use of the journal this year and for years to come. In addition, the program can be scheduled to automatically open every day at a scheduled time. Technical features include a full-featured word processor with spell check and the ability to insert graphics into your journal entries.
Many people find journaling to be very powerful. It’s a way to get their thoughts and feelings out and into the Universe. That can be a very liberating experience. To get the most out of it, it does require some daily attention. From the book:
Daily practice has an advantage over sporadic practice, in that regular attention to your spiritual life builds up a rhythm in your awareness. This rhythm allows deeper insights to emerge that are not possible with a random program. This journal presents one of many possible devotional activities that you might use to establish a regular, daily rhythm of introspection.
To aid in the process of making it habit we added an autostart preference setting so that at a time of your choosing Spirit Is Calling starts automatically. In the beginning that can be helpful to get into the habit of journaling.
One of the reasons why I created the electronic version of the journal is that I don’t write by hand much any more. Writing by hand is very slow and somewhat painful for anything of length. But I can type 80 words a minute (if I don’t care about the mistakes on the first pass) so having a word processor built-in to the journal (with spell checking) makes sense.

If you are looking to try something different in your spiritual practice, please try Spirit Is Calling. Perhaps the journal will help you define your goal and get you out of your daily trivia.
In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it. – Robert Heinlein
