Sounds of (not) Silence

Listen…  What do you hear?  Listen again…  What can you hear that you have been tuning out?  Listen again…  What symphony of sounds are all around you?

Sitting outside this morning I have been accompanied by a moving chorus of birds – twitter, cheep, coo, and chirp – repeated in rounds and call and response.  You can listen by clicking here Morning Birds

What a great reminder that there is life all around me – life that I often don’t notice or pay attention to.  When I focus on myself, I lose the awareness of the fullness of the experience of life.  Stopping and listening is a way to expand my awareness and connection.

Take a minute to close your eyes and listen.  What do you hear?
