Letting Go with Guy Finley

Before we can hope to change the way we speak to others, and the tones with which our words are spoken — that we might express more patience and consideration for those around us — we must first become mindful of the impatient and inconsiderate parts of us whose voice and actions not only tend to make victims of our family, friends, and neighbors … but of ourselves as well.

***

If we shut our ears to the still “little voice” — that little Light within us whose love reminds us we’re not meant to be cruel, impatient, or in a perpetual rush — we will soon be unable to see the difference between what we have become, and all that it is possible for us to be.

***

Because the “still small voice” speaks within us without using words, we must learn how to listen with our eyes, hear with our heart, and receive each moment mindfully; only then is our response in harmony with the greater reality.
