Being still for just a few moments can allow us to refocus, take a breath,notice something we hadn't seen before, or hear something we need to hear. As long as we are moving, talking, doing, there is no room for new energy to enter and truly reach us. The most important part of a conversation is the listening part. Why else speak? The most important part of a dance is feeling your partner's moves. Why else dance? The most important part of people's faces are their eyes. How else will you see their soul? Our greatest gift is in receiving. Without this we are alone in the world. When we are our quietest, we will hear the whisper of other souls and we will hear the whisper of the Spirit within us and around us.
Stop for a few moments and just listen, look, feel, and receive what the world offers you.
Open your heart up and hear the voices of those around you.
Know that we all have a need to be heard, so we must listen to each other.
Stillness and quiet can leave us open to others and to the voice of the Spirit.
