Often when I am feeling weakness, I read books in order to gain strength and a new perspective on issues I am facing. While reading helps me to become inspired, it does not bring me into contact with the voice I am looking for.
The best way for me to find strength is to look for it within my own self. And when I touch upon that great voice, it is the voice of a woman, and not one of a man. It is a voice of love, compassion and nurture. I can tell you all about it, but the only way for you to truly know it, is to experience it for yourself. To get to that place, do something that keeps you immediately in the present, directly in the NOW. You are responsible for yourself.
