What calls to you from deep inside? Listen to that voice, it’s who you’ve been looking for.
In a busy world, it’s hard to slow down and listen. But even if we could, what are we listening for? Our jobs, family, even our free time dictate that we keep moving, do something useful, and not be seen as “a slacker.” But there is something more and we block it out by keeping busy.
Whether by choice or by external circumstances such as health, we do need to find the time to find our calling. There is something calling to each of us from deep inside, something that calls us to be more: to be more genuine, loving, helpful, and kind. These mean to ourselves and to those we know or meet.
There’s a voice, your voice, calling to you from your heart. You need to figure out how to hear this voice and then to follow what it’s saying to you. It could be as simple as reminding you to be kind to the person you pass on the street. Or as big as, “You need to change what you’re doing or what you’re doing is going to harm you or others.”
I journal – a lot! I have favourite books I like to read and oftentimes they come with questions that I take the time to answer, in writing. It’s in writing, my preferred method is pen and paper, we are forced to slow down to write out our thoughts. Sometimes, when I’m writing a truth, my pen slows down and I’m deeply experiencing the words I am writing. This can happen with typing as well but I find there’s a deeper connection with writing by hand. It flows from my spirit to my hand, and in the flowing is the answer I need.
What’s coming out is the voice that is whispering to you from your locked-up heart and it is that voice that is directing you to become the person you know you want to be. Listen to it. Understand it. Allow it. Because this voice is your voice and it is giving you the answer you have been looking for.
