January 7.2015 – Listening With Your Heart by Steve Goodier

I sometimes wish I had a road map for living.

If only someone would occasionally show me a way to go, a direction

to take, it seems things could be easier. Have you ever thought like


But it doesn’t take me long to remember that others probably feel as

confused as I do.

Passengers on a regular flight from Detroit to Tri-City Airport

(which is situated between the Michigan cities of Saginaw, Bay City

and Midland), must have felt a little more than confused during a

flight attendant’s greeting. Obviously not familiar with the area,

she welcomed everyone warmly and stated that the destination would

be Midland. A few concerned passengers alerted her to the mistake,

so she quickly corrected herself by saying they were headed to

Tri-City and Bay City.

Chuckles rippled along the aisle as she bravely tried again. This

time she informed passengers that their destination was Saginaw. Now

laughter broke out.

At that point, an authoritative voice came over the intercom and

rescued her. “I’m your pilot, folks,” he said, “and don’t worry — I

know where we’re going.”

It’s nice when someone knows the way. But does anyone know the way

YOU should be going? The way you should go in your life?

The truth is — we really can’t depend on others for the most

important answers about living our lives. People can help, but

nobody can truly decide what is best for us; nobody else can steer

us along that individual path that we should take.

But the good news is this: we will eventually find the way

ourselves. And I believe we’ll find it best by listening. Listening

to our hearts; listening to an inner voice.

I’ve learned that if I listen well, I will discover that the

solution I need is usually there, hiding within. It may be

irritatingly well hidden, but it is there nevertheless.

Perhaps you feel a bit lost. Most of us do at times. And if so,

don’t worry. This may be a perfect time to listen. Listen to that

quiet voice within. And while you listen, remember this — your

inner pilot knows where you’re going.
