Raising Our Voices

When we all gather, it's easier to raise our voices. But when we are alone, do we have the courage to stand up for what we believe in. Hiding behind the shadow of others, our voices are not heard as clearly. Life would be easier if we all agreed on the same ideals, but since we do not, what will it take for us to bravely stand alone. To be still when others point a finger and challenge what we are saying, takes strength. Although it may not seem important to share our views on the smallest matters, these will soon add up and frustration will fester within. If we reflect upon what matters most to us in life, we can then decide whether we have the courage to be different from others. We are here for a purpose, let the universe guide us towards our destiny. Today, be strong in your convictions. Think about the times you have backed down because you felt that you weren't strong enough to voice your beliefs. There is strength in us all, you just have to believe that what you say is the truth and have faith that someone will hear your message.
Sometimes you have to do things differently in order to be heard...

(I have found that those who do things differently have to have an inner strength or else they will be crushed by the judgements of others. Although I tend to be quite conservative, I think it's more of a lifestyle then a tendency to follow others. It's funny the more I understand my path, the more concern others feel about what I am doing. It's difficult for others to see my journey for it is not theirs to take.)
