Sunday, September 16, 2007 - Listen

"All beings cry out ... Listen
All mistakes point the Way ... Listen
Everything is Truth ... Listen
Put aside self interest and help others." --- Zen Master Dae Gak

Are you listening? Do you hear the songs of the birds outside your window in the early morning as a gift or as a nuisance? Are you listening?

Do you choose to hear the truth or believe anything that is being said? Are you listening? Listening is an active art. It takes practice. It takes time. It takes effort to do it well. Let's all listen carefully today and filter out what is harmful or untruthful.

May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you walk in beauty with the sun shining warmly upon your shoulders and the breeze gently caressing your face. May you put aside yourself and...Listen.
