If we listen from the heart with our whole being,
putting aside the intellectual view and
emotions which make us separate
from what we are listening to,
we have a chance to become
one with the universe;
a few moments for the ‘self’
and all interferences to vanish.
This is a chance to go home to the
still silence of our divine origins.
We may be moved to use words
to respond to what we can hear,
or to try to share our experience of
amalgamation in the whole.
Words are only indicators,
like a finger pointing at the moon,
but we can respond to what we hear
like a valley responds with echoes
to a human cry, or an iceberg
to a whisper through its gaps.
We can echo our experience without either
judgement or preference,
without influencing or disturbing anyone
like a humming bird quietly taking
the pollen it needs from an orchid.
Such oneness is our true nature.
