How did it go, oh, Mighty Listeners?
How did it go, oh, Mighty Listeners? We'll officially Listen again on August 24th, 2013 . . . but hopefully lots more between now and then.
I listened to beauty and ugliness; the gentle, rhythmic sounds of my dogs breathing as they paddled in a calm ocean . . . but also the voice of a man pointing a gun (my Crisis Ministry). I Listened to and heard, albeit in shocked slow-motion, everything he said, until he put the gun back in his vest. I heard him say that he was angry and afraid and, "handicapped," and that he'd had a bad experience. I think I really, truly heard all that he said, while I breathed slowly, heard pounding. Many hours later I was Listening to someone ramble, and I became aware that I had stopped Listening, almost immediately, so I tried again. Later, I listened to lots of people at a party . . . in between big gulps of food! I have a long way to go. Have you, Dear Ones? Whenever the Spirit moves you, whether sooner or later, please let us know what your Listening unveiled for you.
And May The Force Be With You!
