Learning to Listen

“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent.”
―     Parker J. Palmer,     Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation

Here is an inspiring video of Parker Palmer, a man who set me on the path towards vocation over 7 years ago. I read his book Let Your Life Speak  many times a year to re-inspire me on the journey to listen instead of tell.
