As in not following popular opinion and ideas just because they are there, presented and in vogue.
It does means listening. Being quiet enough to hear that still, small voice within—the one that requires me to turn down the volume of everything else so that I can HEAR it. Part of turning down that volume is recognizing and agreeing to tune out the opinions around me because…..
No matter how well intended, no matter how strong the love, no one—and I mean no one–knows what is best for me except…..me.
(It has taken me a long time to get this one!)
Intuitively we know that our heart,the voice within, has a cheat sheet—knows the answers we are seeking.
It promises a short cut to the good life, to living the life we are intended to live—a life of purpose, of promise, of peace, of magic.
Somewhere, someone made me realize the importance of taking action when I hear that inner voice speak. To follow that ever so light whisper of direction, for in doing so, and this is important— we exercise the muscle of belief. And with use, that muscle grows, becomes stronger–more able to take action sooner next time–no lag time or delay in indecisiveness.
With every follow up action that is taken, our steps become more sure in leading us to the life we desire.
Boiled down to its essential elements following the heart contains within it the recipe for the life we are longing to live.
Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart.
~ James Earl Jones
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. ~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery
