Listen with a Still Heart

At the Still Point

 They miss the whisper that runs

any day in your mind,

“Who are you really, wanderer?”

and the answer you have to give

no matter how dark and cold

the world around you is:

“Maybe I’m a king. —  William Stafford

Your dreaming self seeks to tell you something your waking ears will not hear. — Jacqueline Carey

Above all, he learned from it how to listen, to listen with a still heart, with a waiting, open soul, without passion, without desire, without judgment, without opinions. — Herman Hesse, Siddhartha

“May hearing enter him and the exactness of every heart that speaks to him. No one is born wise. To listen well is to speak well.
He who listens is a master of what is good.
Splendid is listening to one who hears!
Listening is better than all else.
It manifests perfect love.” ~ The Wisdom of Ptahhotep
ca.2200 BCE
