My life is the four directions. People often ask me for advice about where they should be. They tell me they don’t know where to go. But when I sing this song, it tells me, because the four directions song tells the story of our daily life.
Sometimes we need to follow our heart and listen to our mind because they both work together. Sometimes we struggle with which one to follow. When I sing this song, it helps me to help others and show them the path.
This is the year of listening and not talking. When we listen, we learn a lot, not only about ourselves but also about others. Sometimes our spirit leaves our body because we talk too much. Silence is the best medicine to not only hear ourselves but others who want to speak to us. It’s why the four directions song is important to me because it helps me and leads me in the right direction.
