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?
