A poem from Shel Silverstein

Posted August 26, 2010 from United States

“"There Is A Voice Inside Of You That Whispers All Day Long, "I Feel That This Is Right For Me, I Know That This Is Wrong." No Teacher, Preacher, Parent, Friend Or Wise Man Can Decide What's Right For You- Just Listen To The Voice That Speaks Inside."” - Shel Silversein

This is the voice I have to listen to. To stand up and be firm with what I believe and how I should live my life to better not only myself but the people I interact with daily. This is a motto to live by that I feel is a great reflection of PulseWire and what it believes.

“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”

This one also speaks to what this world throws at us each and every day. Things we most battle with. Anything is possible, anything you can think or dream can become reality. That is what I must search for and find.

    I have not heard this poem before. However it definitely speaks to me, and my practice in my daily life to try and be in touch with my Wise Mind, the voice inside me that speaks with clarity and love.

    Here's the best of wishes to both of us, for the strength and energy to follow our dreams!
