Listen

Listen not only with your ears, but your eyes—your whole body.

Listen to the voice within.

“Listen to your heart. It knows everything.”  ~ Paulo Coelho

Listen to what’s not being said; to the silence all around you.

“The inspiration you seek is already within you. Be silent and listen.” ~ Rumi

Listen to nature it’s desperately trying to get your attention and tell you something you need to hear.

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” ~ Ram Dass

Listen carefully to the children.

“People start to heal the moment they feel heard.” ~ Cheryl Richardson

Pay attention to the children because they are the future and the last hope for this precious planet.

“The voice of the sea speaks to the soul.” ~ Kate Chopin

    Amazing quotes, Listening and being attentive to everything around & inside you is so important to your mental and spiritual growth!

  2. Perfect read to begin my day🙂🙂 Absolutely inspiring!

    Good day, Charu

  3. Great post! Great quotes! Even better is your timely message, a reminder to stop and listen 💜

  4. Beautifully written Michele, especially about the silence. Like everything else in the universe, it is the opposite to what we think is required.
    We go out searching everywhere for that happiness, inquiring everywhere, and all the time it has been patiently waiting within.
    Yes, that is required so that when we ‘hear’ that silence we will appreciate it all the more when we finally discover where it has always been ❤

    • Thank you so much, Mark 😉 I always learn so much just being in silence and hearing what it’s saying. That happiness is right there inside of us, and once you tap into it a warm feeling comes over you. It’s a wonderful way to connect to the “everything.”

  5. An excellent post Michele.
    The quotes are so meaningful
    for this day and age.

    i’m hearing through my monitor
    and my ears are happy 🙂

  7. Whole body listening is something my kids were taught in kindergarten. I think a lot of adults could benefit from this teaching too!

    Excellent choice of quotes. I find Rumi to be one of my favorites.

  11. Thank you! Rumi is one of my favorites too.

  12. Sometimes when we are not happy with who we are, we use noise to drown out the silence of our truth. When we are brave enough to face the silence, it is then we start to truly live. In silence lies contentment. Great post, Michele!

  13. Thank you, Marie. I love what you’ve said here. So beautiful and I feel so true.
