Ripples #898: Your Voice, Your Song.
Aug 8, 2016
In life, finding a voice is speaking and living the truth. Each of you is an original. Each of you has a distinctive voice. When you find it, your story will be told. You will be heard.
―John Grisham, shared by Kathy in Pittsville, WI
Meaning is what calls from the depths of the soul. It is the song that sings us into life. Whether we have a meaningful life depends upon whether we can hear this song, this primal music of the sacred.
-Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, shared by Leslie in Madison, WI
Right now, at this particular time in our history, there are thing things that need to be said that can be best spoken with your voice. Your perspective isn’t quite like any one else’s on this entire planet, and your experience hasn’t been like anyone else’s. The life you have lived and the things you have seen and the choices you’ve been offered and the paths you have taken are not quite like anyone else’s. We need you to speak your truth about your life, and your perspective, and your beliefs and your truth.
There are also songs that need to be sung which only you can sing: heartbreaking torch songs to release pain, triumphant choruses that cultivate joy, and melodic ballads that describe the adventures you’ve been on and the lessons you’ve learned. It may seem like there are times when your voice and your song aren’t valued, because there are so many others trying desperately to be heard. It is easy to forget but we must always remember: as long as there are problems to be solved and challenges to be faced and difficulties to be overcome…we need need your help in addressing them.
