Start listening to the nature, sky, stars, sun. Listen to your body. Start listening to your pains Ask why am I sufferings from this pain. Go deep inside you, listen your mind silently. Meditate to make mind silent so that u can start to hear feel or understand. Sometimes you may need break from outside world whatever comes to your mind trust it and do it with faith and devotion and serve all the beings around you with love. Every where u will see the sign.
