Listen to your heart.

Do you hear the words it says?

It speaks the truths you need to hear.

As you search near and far for the purpose of your life, your heart screams at you, trying to get your attention.

Listen to your heart.

It will lead you the right way.

While you trip and stumble because you are blind and deaf, your heart smiles sadly at you while it flies free.

Listen to your heart.

It sings the true meaning of happiness.

While you travel around the globe in search of yours, it tells you that it waits for you at home.

Why can’t you listen?

Can you not hear?

Stop running around looking for something that is staring you in the face.

Slow down.

Walk mindlessly and let your heart silently guide you.

Stop.

Listen to the birds play in the trees.

Listen to the quiet rush of water in the sparkling river.

Listen to the lazy rustling of the bush.

Listen.

What is that?

Your heart.
