Advice from Walt Disney

I’ve recently had some email’s from some people wanting advice.  I’m not really one to give advice, I like to listen but not really much on advice.  I think about one of my favorite Disney stories; Pinocchio.  This is the story I tell people about when they ask for advice.  Well everyone knows the story of Pinnocchio, the wooden puppet whose nose grows long when he lies.   His friend Jiminy Cricket chirps.  “Let your conscience be your guide.”  Pinnocchio follow his advice and repents, and returns to his Creator, Geppetto, where he is given a heart of flesh and is freed from his strings.  So what is the message.  I think it’s listen to that inner voice.  If you have confusion.  Ask it a question.  It will answer back for you.   I try my best to listen to that voice.  Sometimes it sure is hard to hear.  I’m better at it in quiet places, or underwater.  Havn’t figured that one out yet.  I’m asking myself right now, how strong is my own conscience.  Sometimes my decisions are swayed by others.  But I have not resisted the inner voice.  I try to listen to it, sometimes I even argue with it, because I want to do something else.  Today I ask for a conscience that is cleaned.  I am sorry for all I’ve done wrong in this lifetime, I’m sorry for those times I didn’t listen to the inner voice.  I’ve sort of been writing about this in a couple of my entries lately it seems.   Listen to the inner voice.

I had to do this recently, break an alliance, that deep inside I knew was compromised, causing my heart to be heavy, so I fled , left the group in question and it feels sooo much better,  the darkness and yuck aren't weighing  me down anymore, but I did loose a "friend" , one who thoughht I was narrow in my thinking, I think the key is don't be afraid to loose something , if you know  you have to take a stand!

Sound advice and it is so true..sometimes from all the other noises and things going on in our environment we dont hear the inner voice guiding us along and helping us make decisions.

I totally agree!  This world is definitely missing that.  That and humility.
