You are often only aware of what there is to hear when there is something annoying in your presence. The late night disturbance, the constantly playing children or the loud neighbor. When you’re not annoyed by something you’re constantly playing music or have the television playing. Then you’re surprised when a loved one is upset with you. You’re disappointed when you’re not told how much you are loved or needed. Listening is more than recognizing sounds is hear the subtle and not so subtle communications from your loved ones, nature and your own inner knowing. Ponder this and start listening to your world around you. My highest blessings.
