Ask and then listen

"All you need to do to receive guidance is to ask for it and then listen." --Sanaya Roman
Ask, then listen. Simple, right? Yet, so many of us forget one or both parts of this. We complain. We lament. We bemoan. Or, we ignore a reality until it can no longer be ignored. 
After that, we might remember to ask for the answer to appear. We might remember to ask for guidance on how to move forward or which choice to make. When we reach the point of knowing that something needs to change, we'll usually ask the question.
But, listen? Well, life so readily gets in the way of that. Life tumbles at us and we react. Days go by without us finding the time to slow down and listen. Even when the answer tries to get our attention, we often aren't able to hear it because of our noisy lives.
So, today, slow down. Breathe. Ask. And, then listen. Even if it's only for a few minutes. Listen.
