Listen to yourself. If your body is telling you to avoid certain foods and eat more fruits and veggies, do it. If your gut feeling is telling you to distance yourself from certain people and get closer to those who have a positive aura to them, do it. If your heart is telling you to travel, quit the job, start this project, spend more time in nature, take a break, read this book, be with that person, go for it. Your higher self knows what’s best for you, so don’t ignore the message.

It consists in the dissipation of one’s own ignorance concerning oneself and life, and the gradual growth of that understanding which begins the spiritual awakening. The finding of God is a coming to one’s self… ~ Aldous Huxley
