Supporting the Awakening of Consciousness in Asheville and Beyond

All the inner voices,
calling out for attention;
some of them advocating for discord.
there is also a soft voice calling forth from a simple wholeness.
It is not the loudest.
It lacks the drama carried by the other voices.
And, yes, even when you clearly hear it,
you still sometimes clam up into a forced silence,
denying yourself your own wholeness,
and authoring additional suffering.
That you are now clearly hearing the soft voice
is such a fine sign.
You are one step closer to embracing your misplaced love for yourself.
Love is at your door
is not to be deceived
is not to be denied
is not leaving.
