One of the most powerful things to do for ourselves and others is develop the skill of listening. In the hustle and bustle of life, we may forget to stop for a moment and listen to the world around us.
Tune in … hear the birds singing their song to welcome the day. Hear the voices of family and friends as they interact with each other. Hear the sounds of the city or the country and the everyday noises of life.
Listen intently. Experience a greater connection with the world. We are one with all of life. See the ways in which we are interwoven as a community and how important it is to listen and to hear our thoughts, opinions, fears and desires. Listen and give thanks for the world around us.
