silence & listening
Posted by katie berggren on
How open are we to moments of silence, peace & quiet? Does the radio or television get turned on sometimes just so that we can escape those quiet times? And what if we invited the silence, and welcomed the not-doing, the not keeping-up or getting caught-up ~ and just listened? What might our inner voices be saying to us when we decide to just stop? Personally, I think we find answers to our most important questions. Just by listening.
And what if we stop doing and take the time to listen to our children’s voices? I’m guilty of forgetting to do this sometimes. Those are the important voices outside of our heads, and they are looking at us, waiting to be noticed. Needing and yearning for their stories and concerns and ideas to be heard.
What do you think?
Love & Sincerely, Katie
