I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul. – Rumi
Your true wisdom, the “teaching of your Soul” is sometimes difficult to hear, but always available.
It is not what the media might try to tell you or sell you.
Nor is it your job description or your address or the square footage of your house or the car you drive.
It isn’t what your parents told-you/want-for-you or what your friends think or what your neighbors say or even what your spouse or significant other might say.
It’s what the (sometimes) small, quiet voice, deep within says; if you’re only quiet and still enough to hear it.
Unless and until you practice being still and quiet you will have little-to-no access to what this voice has to tell you.
But you will always feel the un-ease and regret when you violate the truth of your own internal wisdom.
