it’s all right here

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.

~John O’Donohue

She says nothing at all,

but simply stares upward into the dark sky,

and watches, with sad eyes,

the slow dance of the infinite stars.

~Neil Gaiman

    • we’re studying love in my practical philosophy course- this reminds me how we cannot “stay awake”- we continually need to reconnect and realign those stars in us:) thanks g.f.s….
