It takes tremendous effort to not get caught up in today's busyiness. Yet, if we allow ourselves to get caught up, we lose track of who we are. Our attention is everywhere else except on how we feel, what we really want, what really matters. Very sad. Because without knowing these things we cannot create the life that makes us happy and fulfilled.
One key thing -- if you decide to slow down, give yourself plenty of time. We are so overcharged it takes a long time to settle down into silence where we can actually hear our own thoughts, desires, feel our feelings, hear our dreams.
So take the time to hear. Without those inner voices you're just a shell moving in the world. Yes, hard to say, but true. It's only when we hear those voices that are our truth that we can begin to really live, really feel fulfilled.
