Spiritual messages can come through other people or through the words of a song or in our thoughts. The idea is to be aware, to pay attention to nature and to our surroundings in general. The hope is that everyone will develop an awareness that messages can be received in a variety of ways in everyday life. This book hopes to inspire conversations about listening and receiving and paying attention. Paying attention to something that is more of a thought than spoken words, something that is more like a whisper that is heard in the mind and felt in the heart.
