Discover the Still, Small Voice Within

During a traditional Quaker meeting, the Friends sit in silent meditation. No one speaks unless they are moved to do so through the "still, small voice" of God within. As a result, spoken words are often sparse, clear, and wise.

When practicing silence, listen for that still, small voice within. How will you recognize it?
  • It moves us toward love – for ourselves and others
  • There is a sense of clarity, excitement, relief, an undeniable knowing
When we make life decisions by listening to the noise – and not the silence – our decisions often are colored by fear. In listening to the voice that speaks to us from within the silence, we may find all the guidance we need to take the right action.

Have a joyful day everyone. And remember to live a flourishing life.
