When we listen deeply, we hear sounds, music, our own voice, and others attentively. We receive them as they are, without interpreting. If our minds are distracted or reactive, we can neither hear ourselves nor others. Deep listening means being open and to respect what we hear with both compassion and kindness. By hearing with clarity and without judgment we open up and experience what it means to be present.
Stories stimulate us in ways that pure facts do not. They create our reality. Fear of the unknown is such a story that we tell ourselves. It seeks validation. That can reinforce our fear, making us feel helpless and overwhelmed. However, once we realize that fear is a story that appears in consciousness, we can begin to let go of the negative spiral, discovering the love that we really are.
Our eyes offer us a paradise of shapes and colours. In this meditation, we feel grateful for this and allow them to rest deeply. By directing our attention mindfully we experience how the eyes, the face, the whole body and finally the mind relaxes. Everything may be as it is.
