Pay Close Attention. To your hearts desires. To your body – all it has is gestures and feelings to communicate to you. It loves you, even if you don’t like it. Listen to the birds, the wind and the sun rising. Listen, really listen, with full presence, to a loved one, a friend, a co-worker. Listen to what is underneath their words and the words you speak. Listen for what you need, listen for connection to humanity. Listen as an act of kindness to yourself. Then be brave and act on what you hear — be wide-eyed and ears up!
