People do not know how to listen. We seem to think that hearing is the same as listening . . . it is not. You can hear and think, but you cannot listen and think. When you are listening there is inner silence. To listen and be silent are very compatible energies . . . and they are energies!
Silence is the sound of life, for within silence is inaudible sound. We are hooked on audible sound! When a person truly listens – and it takes quite a while to learn how to do this – they are at one with all life. This is when the metaphysical ears of the heart open to inaudible sound, for it has nothing to do with outer hearing.
Listening to the silence actually assists in the development of the pineal, and this is very needed today. We live in a noisy society, with cities making a clamorous din that few people seem to notice, so accustomed are we to loud constant noise. For a country person the city is in-your-face noisy, yet for a city person, “What noise?” Life . . . be silent, listen.
A deeper connection with life is created when we silently, yet constantly and consciously . . . choose Love!
