Episode Two Hundred Thirty Four, Practice This New Birdcall

Understanding the language of our guidance is fundamental to being able to converse and be guided. This, and belief that it exists and that we can be empowered with this ability, of course.

There is nothing in your mind

You have not invited in

says Hafiz.

We are of a design that we are from but not privy to. Outside of paying attention to how our life moves within us we appear alone. Sometimes we find ourselves beyond our expectations. This is where guidance comes in especially handy.

The wise in any foreign country

Seek a true guide.

Hafiz advises.

Relying solely on one's previous adventures allows only for the repetition of those experiences. There is a need to trust that must be employed to entertain guidance and allow a person to expand into new perspectives and greater understanding.

This entire task of reading aloud the over 200 poems of The Gift has been about this one thing for me. Understanding how guidance speaks to me and how to develop a relationship with it takes focus and discipline.

Thank you for listening.

Music: This song, Hypnotized was written by Bob Welch and performed here by Fleetwood Mac. Do we hypnotize ourselves into a living reality or do we realize we are alive in hypnosis? Does it matter?

Now you know it's a meaningless question to ask

If those stories are right

Because what matters most

Is the feeling you get when you're hypnotized
