We have a Nor-easter coming in this weekend, I'll be laying low after this mornings coffee. No smoking here no need to stand out in the freezing wind and snow, thanks to all of you.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
It has been said that intuition is a talent of women, but in this program we, as men, are learning to listen to our own inner feelings. This strength has nothing to do with gender. Many times we have a quiet inner knowing of something, but in the past we developed an insensitivity to these messages. Our growing self-respect includes the ability to stand up for what simply feels right. We don’t have to prove anything to ourselves. If we dismiss our own private feelings, all we have left to go on is someone else’s idea of reality.
This realm of inner feeling is the realm of wisdom. It is the creative part, the mysterious part, the spiritual part. It is the foundation of honesty with ourselves. In these quiet moments, we are more able to perceive what we know in our hearts. As we grow, we respect and trust it more.
