WHAT VOICE ARE YOU LISTENING TO?

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

isn’t it time for us to listen

if not to others, to ourselves

within us, each of us,

lives 2 voices

one that criticises, spews hatred, 

separates us from each other 

is quick to judge 

and sees only the bad in others who root think like them

but there is another voice within us

one that is far more innocent, 

that looks to bring people together

is quick to forgive

and sees only the good that is trying to happen

these are real voices

and as much as we want to accuse those around us 

we need to look inside ourselves

and L I S T E N

which voice are you listening to?

we cannot come together

if we continue to separate

we are all a part of one another

can you feel it?

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
