Learning to sit quietly.
In a meeting.  At home.
Living with my thoughts –
It can be lonely.
But think of conflicts avoided
And loves not strained
And listening without plotting.
Now I hear.

    Nice poem, Stu. I recently did my first five-day silent meditation retreat. I’m not the world’s best listener. (Yes, read between the lines on that one.) I’m still amazed and amused at how much calmer I am when I don’t feel the need to speak without listening first.

    As always, I am inspired with every post you make.

    And we, sitting at our computers, reading your thoughts; “hear you” loud and clear!!
