Recently I threw in the towel and got an iPod. Not any iPod, but the coveted (by some) iPhone. Now, to be clear, I am not bragging! My point is that as much as I love having my own choice of music, podcasts, and lecture available at the drop of a hat, I have to admit I miss my dear old radio.
Yes, you heard me right.
The radio is an excellent feedback system for when I’m on the right path. When I’m doing a really good job of listening to myself and following my deepest desires the radio always plays the perfect songs for me. When I am true to myself, even when it doesn’t feel very comfortable the very best song for that situation will start playing, changing my mood instantly.
When I try too hard it doesn’t matter what station I listen to, no song is even close to hitting the sweet spot of resonance.
The lesson learned? Take a moment to look for the patterns in your life that tell you “yes, you’re on the right path”, or “no, not this way”. They abound in the strangest places.
