In the quiet...

Human nature has proven time and time again that no matter what the universe promises to bring, we inevitably fall into the same pattern. We are our own worst enemy and have the most difficulty getting out of our own way.  When times are tough, it’s easy to blame the world and wallow in the pain. But often it is pain we bring upon ourselves.  Warnings are all around but we insist on following the course and quite simply not getting out of our own way. Sometimes it’s important to stop and just listen. The answer will come. Often the answer is to simply get out of your own way. Stop reveling in limited glory or wallowing in fleeting misery.  Instead listen to the silence for it will show you the way. In the words of the great mystic Rumi, “The quieter you become, the more able you are to hear.”
