Jack and I were walking through Northshire bookstore the other day and a banner with the quote, “As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, caught my eye. …this statement and thought is so different from what many of us were raised to believe; that we couldn’t/shouldn’t trust ourselves so we were encouraged to give that responsibility over to those who we were told knew better: parents, teachers, religious leaders, politicians, and we slowly learned how not to listen to our inner voice of knowing, learned how to silence or ignore it.
So now, in this time of awakening, our “job” is become familiar with that deep, guiding force within us. It never went away (for lack of being listened to), never gave up on us in disgust. It’s still there beeping that little signal, shining that light saying, “Time to come home. Time to come home. To yourself.”
