Taking The Time To Listen

There are days when we feel that no one is paying attention to what we are saying. We wish that others would listen to us with such intent that every word we speak is of the upmost importance. But in the world that we live, everyone seems to move so quickly that listening has become a lost skill. It is as if the words we are saying lose their meaning as soon as we express them. How can we live a compassionate life, if no one has the time to hear the pain and suffering that others are going through? Today, take a moment to be silent and listen to the world as it moves slowly past you. By living a life of compassion, you will not only hear words being said but will also be able to feel the universal energy that continously flows between us all.

If I am really quiet, I can hear the sound of birds taking flight...
