To your heart

The inner voice

The authentic truth

First, settle your mind

Strip away all the noise


Cluttered thoughts and memos to yourself

Incessant calls for your attention

Things that compel reaction

All the business of life

Shut it all down

Let it settle to the floor

Forget everything

Be the essence of yourself

No distractions

Just experience the moment


Listen for the sound of the river of creativity

Seek it out

Jump in

Listen for inspiration

In the wind rustling the trees

Climb up

Listen to your heart
