Can you leave the 'shoulds' behind and embrace 'inspiration' and trust your "still small voice"?

Do you sometimes or perhaps a lot of the time feel like you're no longer a whole person but you are but  fragmented, the pieces of your life are separated and not functioning peacefully and in harmony as a whole? Kind of like a tree in Autumn who's losing it's leaves that have been a fruitful part of it for such a long time?

and then ends up looking and feeling so bare and bereft like this tree!

As so many outside voices demand an incessant cry of 'shoulds' to you that you eventually give in because it's easier to keep the peace than muster up energy and fortitude to "march to the beat of your own drum"?

"If a man does not keep pace with his own companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music that he hears, however measured or far away" 
~Henry David Thoreau~

Do you hear that quiet and still small voice within providing you with ideas, suggestions and inspirations that you are certain, will be the steps to the path of contentment, calmness, fulfillment? It calls again and again doesn't it, yet each time, the voice is quieter and quieter as it cannot compete with the noisy and demanding voices from the outside nor the frantic pace of your overly-busy and committed life.

Peace eludes you. Joy eludes you. Sleeplessness dogs you. Exhaustion is your steady companion. Your body with its less-than-feeling-right symptoms is not just crying out to you anymore but almost screaming at you to pay attention, yet you also push it to the side for 'another day', so that you can get that just-this-one-more-thing done today.

Then the body just stops crying as it replaces its signals and voices to chronic aches, pains or substandard functioning. Some of them land you in the hospital or a doctors office.

We've all been traitors to our true selves at one time or another; replacing what we know brings our spirit, mind and body true health, peace, wellness, contentment and joy with the falseness of busyness, overcommitment, fearfulness, anxiety and lack of authentic self-care.
