February 5: “The World Is Too Much With Us”

Listentoyourheart“Today, deliberately turn away from the world … Begin, instead, to listen for the whisper of your authentic self telling you which way to go.”  Sarah Ban Breathnach

I had a meeting with my mentor, Maria, this morning.  Maria is an amazing woman, and we have found ourselves to be “birds of a feather,” like minded and spiritually connected in many ways.  Maria gave me some advice this morning that is well suited here.  She suggested sitting quietly each Monday morning, in silence, being still enough to hear the voice of God whisper to you what you should be focusing on that week, and whom you should be in contact with.  I know that it works, because she does it, and every time she has reached out to me, she has had perfect timing!

It is so easy to get caught up in the business of life, and the urgency of everything that must be done.  Even as I write this blog every day, I am a work in progress.  This morning, as I was getting ready for my day, I found myself feeling rushed, worried about making my meeting on time.  Then suddenly, as I was going through the process of making my morning tea, I reminded myself to focus on being present, and a peace washed over me.  A voice whispered, “Calm down, relax, it’s alright.  Everything is fine.”  I was able to relax, enjoy my morning routine, and made it to my meeting early!

 “Only when the clamor of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the Deeper Vibration.”  SBB

There have been very distinct times in my life when I was quiet enough to listen to where I was being led, and each and every time, my life couldn’t have gone better.  I am going to follow Maria’s advice, but on a daily basis.  I will be listening very carefully.  How about you?
