If we're sensitive and paying attention, the universe can teach us what we need to learn by tickling us with a feather.
If we're resistant to learning and sleepwalking through life, we require the universe to use a sledgehammer to deliver the same lesson.
Great artists who produce amazingly beautiful masterpieces seem to hold a profound sensitivity in their souls which informs and directs the expression of their artistry. They are profoundly aware of this soft whispering. This voice of inspiration which we all possess IS the voice which silences all others...the voices of enculturation, limiting beliefs, questioning of self-worth, fear and doubt...when we recognize and embrace it.
With clear intention and awareness we can learn to discern this whisper even amidst the clamor of the world which is "too much with us".
This stunning sensitivity of artists can be found in every human heart. It may not be uncovered, but this does not diminish its power or presence. It is the guidance of the Universe which has the governance to bring us into the blossoming of our Spirit Self.
I have found that this soft voice will reveal itself after we have bravely observed what it is that disturbs us and how we would like things to be different.
The process of speaking what we feel "in this moment" seems to open the PATHWAY to recognizing the obstacle in our heart that is preventing us from acting with the pure LOVE of accepting "What Is". Whatever is blocking us always comes from an unhealed pain. By giving ourselves COMPASSION for the experience we have suffered behind the pain we calm and soothe our souls, clearing away the clamor of default buttons and trigger reactions, It is then that the SOFT WHISPER can be discerned...and it is ALWAYS the next, beautiful step in our soul's evolution. In that moment the whisper is feather soft...and profoundly powerful.
Can you sense this exquisite expression of Divine caring or are you
sleepwalking in your "night"?
