I have been writing for forty-five years—poems, stories, journals, dreams, essays—and all of it can be reduced to this phrase: no strangers in the heart. This has led to a belief in our original nature, our endless compassion, our need to listen, and our need to stay awake. It is only through great love and great suffering that we are exhausted of our differences until our hearts are opened to realize that we are at heart the same. This is the constant renewal of compassion that reseeds the world. To live in a truthful way requires that we listen to… Read more.
Like notes in a song, moments lead us into the chorus of our life…the chorus of a song is the part that we all sing along to. The part we all remember! So, each moment is strung together to create a larger time period in our life and these larger time periods become our life… but the moments are the notes that create the song and the song is our life. It is the beautiful moments that create a beautiful life. A life so beautiful others sing along with it and are inspired to find the song of their heart!… Read more.
Quiet your mind and listen to yourself at the deepest level possible. Then trust that what you hear reflects wisdom beyond your conscious mind.
When I was homeless and struggling with everything from self-esteem to survival, I ignored my intuition and the inspiration it offered. I couldn’t believe that some part of me was connected to a wiser source and was trying to guide me. Because I have free will, I could ignore the internal signals. And as long as I did, I suffered. What I learned is that everyone has an internal guidance system. We can get quiet, tune in, and feel our way through life. The more we listen and obey the inner callings, the better life is for each of us…. Read more.
The voice of your soul is your inner guidance system – your intuition. Listen closely and it will tell you how to turn your highest potential into reality.
In listening and getting to know the true us, our soul, we become empowered and limitless.
You can always find your voice in a crowded room. The secret is to listen.
Listen for your own deep questions and follow them. Let them guide you the way a compass guides a lost traveler, marking true north when there are no maps.
Listen better, judge less and forgive more.
When you listen to the deepest calling of your soul, and align your life with your essence, miracles happen.
If you build a window, you can see through walls. If you build a door, you can walk through walls. But if you become a master listener, you can hear through the walls of selfishness, judgments and prejudice and thereby arrive at the brilliance of TRUTH.
Love deeply and believe completely, speak truthfully and listen openly. Pray faithfully and act courageously, share passionately and sleep peacefully.
Transformation occurs when you listen to the voice that calls out from your soul.
When we stop talking and start listening, when we stop taking and start giving, when we do what we should instead of do what we want, the lessons will come in abundance.
Listen to and follow your heart’s intuitive guidance and surf the waves of your personal awakening to heart-based living and fulfillment.
Going through rain, thunder and sunshine in life, I have learned this: Whatever color of the skin on people we all have the same feelings, the same joy, the same fears, the same biology, the same psychology. Yes, on the inside we are all the same. So never judge on the outside. Also be kind to everybody including yourself. Kindness feeds kindness and we need more of that on the globe. This definitely includes never, ever hit your children. Talk to them, show them what is right. Hit and abused children often grow up to be hitting and abusing grown-ups…. Read more.
Do you hear something inside? Your inner voice may be speaking. Your special inner voice is like a feeling, sense, or a knowing trying to guide you to choices that are in your best interest. It urges and prods you to do or not do something, haunting you like a ghost in your heart until you heed its prompting. Sometimes, you may not be sure whether you’re sensing your true inner voice or whether you’re sensing your own emotions, logic, or other internal interferences. You may even feel torn between your own preferences and your inner voice. Finding your inner… Read more.
After another loud, red-faced argument with my husband, I retreated to my corner to mentally reassert my rightness and curse under my breath. Our angry words hung in the air like trapped dust. We’d had too many of these arguments lately, and I hated how I felt. Like a shrew, the kind of woman who makes a scene in public and you watch, shaking your head and thinking, How could she do that? I hated too the inevitable aftermath: hours, days, of silence, polite avoiding of each other in the hallway, sleeping separately, and the only words spoken questions about food… Read more.
Be still in your life. Take time to listen to nothing but the sound of your own thoughts. Learn to like your own company. Share with others what you have. Even if it is just a dollar, share it. Listen with your heart. Do not be in a hurry to tell your story. Listen as others tell their story first. See what needs to be done, and do it. Do the dishes need to be washed? Yes? Then wash them. Are there dirty clothes on the bed? Yes? Put them in the hamper. Send a smiley to someone just because… Read more.
