Listen

Not so much a doing
As an allowing
Let it be
Let it flow around you
Within you
Through you

Take it in
Without thought
Without judgement
With ease

We hear
But rarely listen
It’s no wonder the quiet seems so harsh!
It’s because we don’t know how to respond
How to listen

We hear sound
And inside we feel it
We sense it around us
When we are truly at ease

Active listening?
That speaks judgement
Rat race thoughts
Opinions
Editorializing

What we need is
Passive listening
Flowing effortlessly
To and from us
Within and around us
Over and through us
And the ability to be comfortable with that

The Universe listens
The Earth listens
The Sky listens
God listens
So why can’t we?

Peace
Be still
Listen!
