Strangers on our own home planet

Debra at As I See It Now shares her meditations on being a stranger on her own home planet--a planet where everything, it seems, calls out to us to conform to its ways:
The world has intelligent-sounding advice and formulas. Yet, should I listen to the worldly of my planet tell me how to think? How to write? How to clean my house, or arrange my schedule to get more accomplished? How to reach my goals, make a sale or raise my daughter?

I don't want to come to the end of my days and have God tell me there was a whole different way to live upon this Earth--and I never found it. May I not discover too late that the way to live in this opposite world was to Listen.
After reading Debra's post, I'm reminded that after the roar and rumble of the world, God once spoke to Elijah in "a still, small voice" (1 Ki. 19:12ff).
