What calls to you? When you aren’t distracted by a world that tells you who and what you should be, what you should think and what you should notice, you create the space for your own voice to share its thoughts with you. It guides you wisely if you listen. But for that to happen, you must value its voice and create the quiet to hear it. As I share in my Life Possibilities workshops, “When we quite the chatter in our minds, we allow the meaningful things in life to find their voices.”
One of the most powerful phrases in human language is “I am here.” It is powerful because it is utterly simple and profoundly true.
People who live their lives unaware that they are telling themselves a story consider their thoughts to be descriptions of reality. If someone else has a conflicting description, that person is considered just to be wrong. It is a leap into maturity to realize that our descriptions of reality are our versions of reality. Certainly there is nothing wrong about a version of reality, but the recognition that it is a version, rather than reality itself, is humbling to our version of ourselves!
