@Rasheed Why are you starting a journal if you don't know what to write in it? Perhaps think about this more, your connection with your inner being first, and why this is difficult.

I am writing in various journals, the one i choose to use on a given day is dependent on how i feel. 

If i want to deal with anger / negative feelings towards someone or a situation, i will just write it out, possibly going back and reframing each negative point. Then typically this page will be ripped out and shredded.

Other styles i use:

  • 5 minute journal - see tim ferriss blog post to explain what this is for
  • Grattitude journal - just bulleting things i'm greatful for

I've found this exercise useful, as posted on the resources page:

Do the homework for the What is Fear and Understanding Impermanence videos, daily, in your journal.

You may start to access emotions you didn't know you were having and there will be an endless font of material for your journal.
