Meditation is the act of inner self-listening. Are we spending enough time listening to ourselves each day? Are we worth taking the time to listen to what we have to say to ourselves? Who do we pay attention to in this life? We get calls from people trying to sell us something— we hardly hear what they are saying. But then there are messages we take very seriously, that we listen to with total attention; if someone is saying to us, "I love you" or "You're fired" or "You're hired" we payvery close attention to these messages. We always have the time to hear these very important pieces of communication. So, too, with ourselves. What could be more important than taking the time to sit down and relax and listen to what our inner life is telling about ourselves? We can make an appointment with ourselves each day for a few minutes to quietly sit and listen to our innermost self.
