Loud voices, deep voices

So the first question we must ask ourselves isn’t how to get our idea to spread—it’s how can we do or say something worth believing in.*
(Bernadette Jiwa)

The whole ideas that you’ve got to bring out again that which you went to recovery the unrealised, unutilised potential in yourself.**
(Joseph Campbell)

Loud isn’t the same as deep.

A loud voice wants to be heard over others.

The deep voice wants to speak with the depths of others.

It requires we journey to the centre of our lives, a desire to know ourselves more completely and to speak only from here.

It is only possible to hear our true voice when we are able to hear the deep voices of others.
