Listening to Your Own Voice

Listening to Your Own Voice
by BlackLion

No wonder everyone is so confused – we get so busy listening to what other people are telling us that we forget to listen to ourselves. With all the constant input in our lives from television, radio, books, the internet, etc., when do we make time to seek answers from within? When does our inner voice have a chance to get a word in edgewise?

Perhaps that is one of the reasons I moved to the country. Ample peace and quiet is available, with only the birds, crickets, and an occasional meow to break the silence. This has afforded me the chance to relax, regroup, and reassess where I am in my existence. I am no longer bombarded with media, and the noises that a city can bring. Of course, you can find a quiet space wherever you are – the most important thing is to make this time for yourself.

What does your inner self have to say to you? Is the path you are walking really going where you want it to go? Do you feel confidence and passion or are you walking in fear and powerlessness? One of the ways to help right your ship is to listen to the little voice in your head, especially the one that speaks volumes by saying very little.

To seek within is an age-old adage, yet doing so is the only way to know what you truly want, and to actually achieve it. No matter what anyone else has ever told you, you are the only one who knows what is best for you. Seek the knowledge and love that is within you and you can find the same in the world around you. Focusing on what you want rather than what you do not want is the only way to find what you are seeking.
