This Is How We Listening.

What does it mean to listen?
Can we even do it,
because it will require us to pause.
We must wait for a moment,
suspended in the space between what we have created and what we wish to.
But, it is important to rest.
It is important to learn how to receive.
I don't do this well, always.
But luckily perfection is not a requirement of living.
So we sit here, 
together and we wait.
We breathe and we choose to not know.
That's how we listen,
we make a decision to stay open to being told something new.
We curiously witness the unfolding of tenderness and freshness.
Patience.
Pause.
Receive.
Slowly.
Bravely.
Open.
That's how we listen, we open so gently to the moment that we allow it or you to direct us where we are next meant to go.
Follow the flow.
Be guided.
Gently.
Together.
