Listen

Here are some words of wisdom from Ellie's blog:

To listen is to continually give up all expectation and to give our attention, completely and freshly, to what is before us, not really knowing what we will hear or what that will mean.

In the practice of our days, to listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear. ( Mark Nepo )

The dandelion is there by the sidewalk,
smiling its wondrous smile,
singing the song of eternity.
Listen!
You have ears that can hear it. (Thich Nhat Hanh)


************


May we not forget to listen.
