6 May 2013 : Peace

Allowing our inner voices to be heard is an act of peace.

Too often we stop ourselves in order to make a “right” or “safe” choice. We worry that not doing the right or safe thing is selfish or self-indulgent.

Indeed, in our culture we seem to have made synonymous the prioritizing of ourselves, of our inner voices, with self-indulgence, selfishness, and even arrogance. But I think in our hearts we know the difference.

And in learning to listen to our hearts, to our inner voices, we bring peace to ourselves and to the world.
