We are all spiritually awakening & opening to who we are. It is not about looking outward for answers rather feeling within to open to who we are. We have always been there but have disconnected from ourselves & each other. We are now in a place where we are all opening back up to ourselves & each other as we are all connected & have always been, we just had forgotten.

We all talk a lot with each other but are we truly communicating from the heart with one other? We "talk" a lot to each other but not from the heart where the true feeling can be felt in the space between the words. In this space we can feel the true communications between each other or how another person is feeling. The feeling between the noise that we make on the outside to the stillness on the inside can be worlds apart. When we pick each other into truth the love that exists between us can open. Through our understanding of each other our love opens.
