By Joe Vitale from the book ‘At Zero’.
When I started to surrender the control of my ego, I said, “Okay, Divine. I’m not making out very well all by myself. Help me out. Show me the way and I will do it.” That’s when I found the escalator through life, and I’ve been riding it ever since.
Maybe we need to spend less time intending and more time receiving.
If Divinity is trying to guide us, we need to get quiet to hear its whispers and feel its nudges. This means to go into the silence more often, to practice meditation more often, and to listen to the flowers and trees more often.
I saw Dr. Hew Len standing in a field once, his arms folded, staring at some weeds. When I asked him what he was doing, he said, “Listening.” This wasn’t uncommon. He often walked through gardens to listen to the plants. It’s an ancient tradition of Hawaiians to not only respect all forms of life, but also to actually listen to what they may be trying to say to the clues they’re giving us.
After practicing Ho’oponopono for almost 10 years, it’s clear to me that the Hawaiians have a wonderful tool for clearing the data so that we can hear that still, small voice within, whether we call it God, the Divine, or Nature.
And it’s as simple as listening.
Keep cleaning, and accept the wonders you are offered.
Your life is miracle.
Accept the gift.
