You Are What You Seek
If you feel lost, go within. The map and the treasure reside within you already. It is your own voice that speaks the language of your soul and it will provide you with direction. If you seek purpose, and want to experience a sense of wholeness, find your own voice. Knowledge, wisdom and growth are not shiny objects to seek out, but rather are hidden relics inside you to be dusted off and polished.
Deep silence can help open the channel to your own consciousness, your own being in the awareness. What you hear in your own heart and what your feel in your bones, is your truth and is the wisdom you seek. No Ph.D is necessary. You are unique and as you know and honor yourself you find that your voice is just as important as the most famous teacher, celebrity or politician.
With discipline and practice you can peel back the layers of illusion and the stories that cloud and clutter your access to your own personal truth-voice.
You have an important part to play in the world. The closer you become to being who you really are, the more valuable your voice will become. Have you ever experienced speaking from your heart as it was filled with pure love, trust and enthusiasm? Have you ever written down your thoughts and feeling and afterwards thought, “Where did that come from?” Your voice is the key to action and expression. Using your authentic voice is action in and of itself.
Speak your truth; know that you are worthy. What you seek is right inside you already, and it has been there since the day you were born.
Take time to really focus on and cultivate your relationship with your authentic voice. Make friends with the teacher that resides inside you.
