How ironic is it that this Rumi quote about being “silently drawn” speaks “loud and clear” to my heart, resonates boldly with my soul and rings aloud to remind my spirit that anything is possible.
As an avid meditator, I am intimately familiar with the benefits of being silent. For me, being still or quiet opens the door to much wisdom and truth.
Moreover, when I choose to be silent, my intuition reacts with great zeal and vigor that doors just seem to open in my favor. This is true with both my personal and professional endeavors.
It’s not exactly strange to me, but some may deem it strange because it is as if my intuition had been waiting for me to just ‘shut my mouth’ in order to guide me where I yearned to go from the very beginning.
No question, when I choose silence…my intuition gives me what I need to know and ultimately, draws me to what I authentically, love.
Have you ever had a gut feeling, heard a still small voice or felt something tugging at your heart strings?
Well, in my experience, these experiences most often take place when I am quiet within and can tune out all the noise and chaos of my daily life.
When I am silent, I often have those “aha moments” and as Rumi states am “silently drawn” to my true love, my purest passions and what is right for me in the long run.
When I am silent, I have no reservations about listening to my intuition.
How about you…?
Are you being silently drawn to what you love?
Are you doing what you love?
Are you listening to your heart?
Are you following your bliss?
Are you paying attention to the passions that draw your attention?
Are you being still and quiet so you can hear from your first and true love?
I want to hear from you.
How do your silent moments bring about a path towards passion in your life?

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.”
The New Year can be a time of new beginnings or new begin agains.
Either way, realizing that I am granted new mercies each day, each month, each year and each and every moment helps me take time to pause and reflect.
In my moments of reflection, I regain hope, faith and confidence in what will be. In addition, this quiet time helps reinvigorate my inner man and regain positive energies that propel me to up the ante in every aspect of my life, both personally and professionally.
This morning’s mediatative pause drew me to reflect on Rumi’s quote to “set your life on fire” (and, I add in 2014)!
To that end, what are you doing to rekindle your passions, rededicate yourself to your (life’s) purpose and forge or restore relationships with those individuals that help you live out loud, live authentically or live according to your purpose and reach your full potential in 2014?

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.” – Swami Vivekananda

JOHANNESBURG — Nelson Mandela was a master of forgiveness.
South Africa’s first black president spent nearly a third of his life as a prisoner of apartheid, yet he sought to win over its defeated guardians in a relatively peaceful transition of power that inspired the world.
