Listen

This morning I heard the sound of a kitten meowing. It was coming from my workshop. I entered, listened and echoed a meow. It meowed again but I still couldn’t locate the source. After searching every corner of the shop I stopped looking. This happened three times. Finally I opened the doors to the workshop and hoped it would make a break for the exit. Since this morning I’ve returned to the workshop and did my best meow but nothing answered. However, instead of being relieved I’m perplexed at where it was hiding and whether or not it’s gone or just being silent.

Listening is one of the best gifts we can give to one another, nature, the world. It isn’t easy, especially when the other isn’t cooperating but it is always necessary. We do not listen only to hear but to quiet our minds and spirits so the other can speak.
