Excerpt from my self-published word CD "A Hole in the Middle"
Listen to everything around you. Tune up the volume in your ears and become a universal eavesdropper. You never know when what you hear is a message meant for you. It comes in many forms such as simple conversation, a line from a book or movie, or sitting quietly and listening to birds sing or the movement of the wind.
Look at everything around you. Your vision is meant to see more than what is in front of your eyes. Search for the universal connection, present in every moment. Being aware of that silver thread that binds everything together will always lead you to your next experience.
Evaluate your past and present life challenges on a regular basis. Notice what makes you proud of yourself and what does not. Strive for pride every day of your life and when you don't quite measure up to your personal standard, try harder. You can't change what you did, but you are the only one who has the power to change what you are going to do next.
Appreciate and take care of everything you have been given. Do not compare what you have with what anyone else has. You have everything you need at any given moment of your life. Be aware that anything can disappear in the brink of an eye. When you leave earth you will take what you have learned and nothing more.
Question everything until you are satisfied with the answer. If you feel it is wrong it probably is. Intuition if the universe guiding you. Do not allow anyone else to think or speak for you. You are the only one who is living your life. Do your best and the universe will reward you for your effort.
Acknowledge your pristine soul by staying true to your core values. They have been part of your universal makeup since your soul was created. Do everything possible to keep them clean. Do not get sucked into another's lesser values because of envy, greed, guilt, desperation or laziness.
