Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Time for Reflection
When the busyness stops and the noise inside my head subsides, and the phone doesn't ring and the computer is off, only then, in complete silence, can Spirit speak. It is telling me to have no expectations of this journey. To simply "be." That is my big lesson, to be fully present. To expand my awareness of the five senses. To hear underneath the words. To see beyond the colors.
May our awareness awaken in new ways so our experience of life is enriched.
