We can listen to our life as it happens to us. We listen with our awareness. Our life does not just randomly happen in isolation from who we are; there are usually reasons behind what happens to us. Marriages don’t just suddenly break up. Someone doesn’t just reach a goal randomly. Our success or lack of success in any area of our lives can usually be traced to decisions we make, beliefs we entertain, or actions we have taken.

Boredom, confidence, worry, depression, frustration, happiness or sadness; each have their causes; each is with us for a reason, so we had best listen to them. Our life is a mirror showing us ourselves. Our life is our greatest barometer as to what is happening within us. It is our truest indicator of how connected and aligned we are with ourselves.
