Listening is a personal pilgrimage that takes time and a willingness to lean into life.
With each trouble that stalls us and each wonder that lifts us, we're asked to put down our conclusions and feel and think anew*
Unpredictable as life itself, the practice of listening is one of the most mysterious, luminous and challenging art forms on earth. Each of us is by turns a novice and a master—until the next difficulty or joy undoes us*
Our friendship with everything larger than us opens us to the wisdom of Source. This is the work of being. Our friendship with experience opens us to the wisdom of life on earth. This is the work of being human. And our friendship with each other opens us to the wisdom of care. This is the work of love*
In a daily way, listening is being present enough to hear the One in the many and the many in the One. Listening is an animating process by which we feel and understand the moment we are in, repeatedly connecting the inner world with the world around us, letting one inform the other*
For the living Universe can be entered at any time by listening to our inmost self. This begins by meeting ourselves and opening our minds to silence. It helps to think of silence as the connective tissue for all life. By listening to silence, we can be nourished by everything that is larger than us*
Hi there peoples...
I have been under the weather and bogged down
with a mental state of mind that is most certainly not conducive
to achievement, happiness or satisfaction... the clouds are
parting though... deep breath. This too shall pass.
