Hi Everyone, I’ve written a poem and created a new mandala based on Listening (Al-Mujib). The poem was written as I was sitting on my front porch last weekend listening to the sounds of the neighborhood. Suddenly the entire scene shifted when two neighborhood dogs found their freedom. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed experiencing it.
When you take a moment to get quiet, what is it you hear? Who contributes to the joyous sounds in your life? Where do the sounds of freedom arise for you? How might you practice listening? Please feel welcome to share your thoughts….
