Episode Info: Day 20: Listen to our hearts(Stephen Covey)http://attunementmeditation.com/wp-content/uploads/day20cm.mp3 Music from Journey through the Matrix by Harry Massey & David Gibson Is your inner voice critical or compassionate? We’ve heard from experts that each of us is born with our own version of genius. We are unique, have a distinct X-factor and we each possess some precious value all our own. So why are we often so critical of ourselves? And why do we sometimes tear others down with our criticism. Whether spoken aloud or simply thought, our inner voice tends to come from the ego, or social self. And more times than we are proud of, this voice can be really mean. So beginning a meditation practice can often bring us quiet time where we find ourselves up close and personal with our inner critic. As we persevere with sending ourselves heartfelt wishes of happiness and allow ourselves to be seen with the eyes of compassion something shifts. We begin to soften. And over time we can hear the still, sweet voice of our heart and soul whispering how lovable we are, just as we are. This softening allows us to recognize the inner critic for what it is, a collection of social programs, past hurts and reminders to attack or be attacked. And as we see that this inner meanie isn’t real and certainly isn’t the real me, we recognize how often others are likely hearing their own negative messages. So as you bring daily attention to your mind and heart, be open to listen to and really hear the messages of your heart. And offer everyone else you meet the same generosity. #mk-blockquote-55 {font-family: "Playfair Display"}When we know how to listen to our hearts, we can listen to the hearts of others. ~ Stephen Covey T THE COMPASSION MEDITATION PRACTICE Begin today’s meditation by taking five deep, slow breaths.
