True solitude is found in the wild places, where one is without human obligation. One’s inner voices become audible... In consequence, one responds more clearly to other lives.
Empathy is connecting with the emotion that someone is experiencing, not the event or the circumstance.
Faith means living with uncertainty--feeling your way through life, letting your heart guide you like a lantern in the dark.
Instead of kicking the stone on your path, take it as a sign to change direction.

If you are looking for a good psychic, look in the seat where you are sitting. No one knows better than you what your right path is. A psychic, coach, or counselor can help by suggesting perspectives, options, and possibilities to you, but those possibilities are only valid if they resonate with your inner knowing.
from Enough Already by Alan Cohen
Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart.
Native American Proverb
Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.
We only Notice ‘signs’ when they resonate a truth deep within. ‘Signs’ confirm the inner conviction that is too frightened to take action beyond those thoughts.
Annie Zalezsak (25 January 2012)
There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to… do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.
Good instincts tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out.
Intuition is listening deeply to the instructions of the Universe.
Annie Zalezsak 23 June 2011
Before making a decision, ask inside for guidance. Be patient and await an answer. Act only when you feel calm and certain.
I've learned that I get blocked when my subconscious mind is telling me that I've taken the work in a wrong direction, and that once I start listening to what my subconscious is trying to tell me, I can work out the problem and get moving again.
Walter Jon Williams
What is the whispering message of divine law trying to tell us? Once we arrive at the answer to this question within ourselves, we can direct the journey of our world toward a beautiful, collective reality. The gods do, indeed, whisper before they scream. The only real power we have to eliminate useless suffering in our world is to remain attentive, as in prayer, to the whispers instructing our choices. The challenge for all of us in the West is to hear the quiet instructions first, and then to maintain that listening in a screaming, material world. Deep listening is a fearless, creative response worth cultivating above all else. It is creation’s priceless pearl, which can roll with us through the inevitable deathlike experience and deliver us back into effective life in the world.
from The Inspired Heart, p135, by Jerry Wennstrom
Follow your instincts. That's where true wisdom manifests itself.
So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part
Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) Indian theosophist
A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed... It feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.
You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say. That way, you’ll never have to fear an unanticipated blow.
