Hearing Life's Moments

There’s no way one will ever fully understand life conceptually so answers are made up, but in the space of silence one hears what the moments of life have to say and answers aren’t needed.

Listening to the moment as it occurs allows for harmony with life so what’s not of the mind can arise; thought blocks this harmony. The silence is always there, but it’s not always heard because of the noise between one’s ears. We are mostly programmed to live visually without taking much time to truly see and this is because we don’t hear. This visual living is why one gets pulled around by the outer because hearing the silence underneath the visual hasn’t been developed. There’s no way one can fully understand life conceptually so answers are made up, but in the space of silence one hears what the moments of life have to say and answers aren’t needed. Listen to this silence and hear what life is saying. Develop a listening meditation where you just sit with the sounds of the moment. Add nothing, take nothing away, just sit, listen, be with what arises.

Listening to life’s moments is so different than being drawn in by the visual view. This is because through the visual a label of like or dislike is instantly applied and attachment follows to the point where it gains control. As this occurs the silence of the moment is missed. This is the beginning of how our stories are created, it’s because the space of each moment will be filled with something and it will either be a story or silence. Learning to hear what occurs in each moment is a skill few develop and until it becomes primary in the way life is viewed, the visual will continue to keep one in bondage to the senses as the outer control doesn’t allow life to be heard.
