Rely On The Voice That Has Always Been There


Most of your life you have struggled for love that you did not receive earlier in your life. But you will get nowhere by running to and fro looking for it like a child going door to door for Hallowe'en candy. Doing so will only make you more tired and lonely. Instead, you are called to remain close to your Inner Voice, the Divine within you. It has always been with you, but you have been distracted by all that this world has to offer. The distractions grow each and every day. You must take some time to remove yourself from a world of constant e-mailing, tweeting, facebooking, and texting. Instead rely on the Voice that has always been there. Also, rely on your closest friends, those who really know you and your weaknesses. They will lovingly keep you in check and provide love and support that you need as you continue the journey. One day, perhaps when you least expect it, you will find a love that truly fulfills you and you will rest. For now, stay on the spiritual path, stay close to your Inner Voice.
