When you take the time to draw on your listening-imagination, you will begin to hear this gentle voice at the heart of your life. It is deeper and surer than all the other voices of disappointment, unease, self-criticism and bleakness. All holiness is about learning to hear the voice of your own soul. It is always there and the more deeply you learn to listen, the greater surprises and discoveries that will unfold. To enter into the gentleness of your own soul changes the tone and quality of your life. Your life is no longer consumed by hunger for the next event, experience or achievement. You learn to come down from the treadmill and walk on the earth. You gain a new respect for yourself and others and you learn to see how wonderfully precious this one life is. You begin to see through the enchanting veils of illusion that you had taken for reality. You no longer squander yourself on things and situations that deplete your essence. You know now that your true source is not outside you. Your soul is your true source and a new energy and passion awakens in you.

forget being special- be authentic-

While we tend to be gentle and patient with our loved ones, we all too often hold ourselves to cruelly unrealistic standards. We have a tendency to berate ourselves for not being superhuman. Challenging times do require you to dig a little deeper and find more than you think you have, but you must remember that you are still human and you have limits. As these limits emerge, accept them and be as kind to yourself as you would be to a dear friend. You deserve it.   ~Sarah Noel
