Are you at a crossroads in your life?
Do you have to make a decision as to which path to take to move forward?
Are you wondering:
- how to make the right decision?
- where you should turn for help?
- who knows what the right answer should be?
When we are faced with such questions, we may try turning to outside sources – friends, family, professionals or our own research. We may search out there for the answers.
But even after gathering all the opinions, advice and “facts” from out there, we still have to weigh the options and make the right choice for us.
So what or who guides us then?
Eckhart Tolle in Stillness Speaks tells us that the answers can be found in stillness. He writes:
“Do you need more knowledge? Is more information going to save the world, or faster computers, more scientific or intellectual analysis? Is it not wisdom that humanity needs most at this time?
But what is wisdom and where is it to be found? Wisdom comes with the ability to be still. Just look and just listen. No more is needed. Being still, looking, and listening activates the non-conceptual intelligence within you. Let stillness direct your words and actions.”
Thich Nhat Hahn comments that the truth is found within the still waters of our hearts, when he writes:
“Everything inside and around us wants to reflect itself in us. We don’t have to go anywhere to obtain the truth. We only need to be still and things will reveal themselves in the still water of our heart.”
So when you need to find the answers to those hard questions in life, take the time to be still,
and listen attentively.
Let the God within reveal the truth in your heart, so that you can choose the right next step and live more fully and more abundantly!
