Who do you listen to?

Where do you get your wisdom?
From ancestors, grandmothers, teachers?
From a pulpit at a church?
From books - novels, the Bible, or Self-Help books?
From teachings from your childhood?
One thing I love about journaling, is it gives us the chance to access our own inner wisdom.
If you believe, like I do, that all life is connected, and you believe that you can access that connection that is your soul-force, you will believe what you find there.
I love that we each have a different path, all leading to the same truth.
You might find it at church, in working out, in serving your family.
You might find it in music, in dance, in yoga or laughter.
You might not know where to find it, but if you look inward, if you explore your own path, find your own teachers, ask yourself the question, "what does Spirit ask of me?" you just might feel that you are on to something bigger than yourself.
Art has lead me to this sort of truth and self-knowing.
Your path might have taken a different turn, but as we all come to this simple truth that love and connection is the point, we can all hold hands and say:
"I believe it is worth my life to create love in this world, now, in my own unique voice."
So go to it!

"I believe the lasting revolution comes from deep changes in ourselves which influence our collective lives." --Anais Nin
