This past Sunday at fellowship, our lay leader shared with us a spoken word essay on life's themes and detachment. It was lovely to listen to. Who doesn't like to be still and listen to a good story? John tells the kids stories all the time, (and I've heard the stories several times) but I sit and listen like it's the first time I've ever heard it.
As I was cleaning up the kitchen today, a thought stumbled into my head: just think of how much we miss out on, because we're too busy talking...or preparing to talk. Listening is big. Today, I will try to be a better listener.
The spoken word essay was from this site :::: ~Listen Well~ From its homepage: "offering once monthly, recorded pieces that speak to our need for individual awakening, and embrace the shared wisdom of all faiths..."
Can't wait to hear more, there are a whole list of archived pieces just calling my name.
