No blinding lights, no booming voice, just a slow, sometimes steady, sometimes not, journey of faith. The only things that survives had two qualities, deep roots and flexibility. Two assets that can serve us well as we continue this process of growing
The richness of our tradition, the wisdom of the ages, can serve us as we struggle to discern a calling each of us need to consider. But we also need to be flexible, to be willing to move in directions we never thought available or appropriate.
And part of flexibility is being able to hear,and we must learn to listen; for most of us are so damn busy talking, too busy doing, we don't hear anything but ourselves. Someone once said,"Prayer doesn't mean to listen to oneself speaking. Prayer involves becoming silent and being silent and waiting until God is heard."
If we want to hear from God, it might be better to put ourselves in a position of listening. Sometimes that means being in the right place, sometimes that means being with the right people and sometimes that means just listening a little harder.positivity with Bipolar disorder.
