“Now I will do nothing but listen…”
— Walt Whitman



Today’s Excerpt:

Stop for a moment: How many things can you hear right now?

Try this simple listening meditation:

  1. Sit as comfortably and still as you can. Take 3 breaths.
  2. Listen to the outside world. How many different sounds can you hear that are near and far away?
  3. Now listen to the inside of your own body. Can you hear the sounds inside, like your heart beating, the sound of breathing, or the sound of your swallowing?
  4. Notice how you feel afterward. Is there any difference before and after?
