Thank you, as always, Bill, for your wise insights! You always seem to see beyond the surface of things and get right to the heart of the issue. It just goes to show that you don't need physical vision to have inner vision.

I can't think of times when I received such clear signs as you describe – but I always know I'm on the right track when things all start going very smoothly. It's like, when you make the right choice, life rolls out the red carpet for you and everything just starts falling into place! (Of course, sooner or later we always miss a turn, so we get off the path and things start getting complicated again – but then eventually we find it again, thank goodness!)

Hi Avril,

Thanks for your comments and sharing your thoughts.

I know what you mean when you said “I always know I'm on the right track when things all start going very smoothly.”

If I try to force my personal or professional goals “to work” my projected outcome always does not work out the best. When I feel my work gliding along smoothly with just the appropriate amount of effort and I am tuned into listening to internal and external signals I know I am working at my best. This does not mean that I will not come across difficulties or obstacles that require me to take a different approach.

A good example is when an auto racer has a well set up car, the track is in excellent condition, the weather is perfect and the driver is in the right place mentally. The driver seems to go around the track effortlessly with little forcing around the corners compared to the other drivers. The driver might occasionally need to make a correction when making drastic moves to pass others or avoid collisions. Driver might need to make an adjustment when the car slides sideways because they have run across oil on the racing surface and temporarily loose traction. While going around the track with the least effort they are also in the lead and doing the quickest lap times. They have found their groove. You can read more about this racing groove and related topics at a prior post called “Day At The Races“: http://globaldialoguecenter.blogs.com/disabilities/2006/08/day_at_the_race.html

This example is exactly how you can approach finding what works best for you and how to listen to signals to help guide you in your life.

Has anyone else received any signals that helped you to stay on your path? Any other tips to help us find our way on the path of life.

We look forward to hearing from you.

very interesting i want to know my self can you help me

thanking you
from sri

Hello Sri,

I am very glad you found us. I will be glad to help, and I think others will be happy to help as well.

I think to begin the process of paying attention to your inner signals you have to create a quiet place in your mind so you can hear the signals.

If you are stressed or overly tired try to rest and relax. Maybe some days these signals will not come through because of too many external interferences and you will need to wait for another day. When you are in the flow of doing something you enjoy to do, or in a relaxed state of mind you will soon look beyond the task you are immediately doing and onto the larger goal you are trying to accomplish. Then the signals will start to become clearer.

I do have 4 questions that might aid in clarification to your goals and may lead to ways for picking up on the signals that might help you; if you do not mind answering to help us help you.

1. What do you like to do?

2. When you do this activity do you feel anything special when things are going well?

3. Do you experience any challenges around accomplishing this activity?

4. If you had your wish; what would it be?

Thanks for visiting and posting your message. Especially on December 19th. This is my wife’s birthday.

Best wishes and we look forward to hearing from you.
