A Sign of Obvious Guidance


Downtown Birmingham, Alabama

“When it seems humanly impossible to do more in a difficult situation, surrender yourself to the inner silence and thereafter wait for a sign of obvious guidance or for a renewal of inner strength.”
 Paul Brunton

Paul Brunton was a renowned spiritual teacher and writer who delved into spiritual traditions, emphasizing self-inquiry and inner transformation.

In this photo I captured the Birmingham, Alabama skyline, which illustrates an interesting contrast between clarity and haze. Similarly, during times of confusion, seeking inner silence and stillness can be instrumental in accessing profound wisdom and intuitive insights. 

The concept of "obvious guidance" can be interpreted as those intuitive nudges, hunches, or subtle inner promptings that arise when the mind is calm and open.
