The First Step Is To Listen

The first step is to listen. Are you listening to yourself? How do you listen to others? Are you creating music or noise in the world?
Your daily dose of sanity

It’s time for each of us to listen.

Day #11 of Sanity

“When somebody plays music, you listen. you just follow those sounds, and eventually you understand the music. the point can’t be explained in words because music is not words, but after listening for a while, you understand the point of it, and that point is the music itself. in exactly the same way, you can listen to all experiences.”
Alan W. Watts, Still the Mind and you can experience his listening meditation.

Ask yourself:

  • Why do you need to listen?
  • What does listening mean to you?
  • How would you rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is poor and 10 is excellent, when it comes to a) your ability to listen and b) to others?
  • Why do you give yourself this rating?
  • What actions do you need to take when it comes to listening?
  • And, how does this all relate to empathy?
