Listening

Make everything in you an ear,
each atom of your being,
and you will hear at every moment
what the Source is whispering to you,
just to you and for you,
without any need for my words
or anyone else's.

You are-we all are-the beloved of the Beloved,
and in every moment,
in every event of your life,
the Beloved is whispering to you
exactly what you need to hear and know.
Who can ever explain this miracle?
It simply is.
Listen and you will discover it every passing moment.

Listen, and your whole life will become
a conversation in thought and act
between you and Him,
directly, wordlessly, now and always.
: Rumi


I was listening to the lecture of Sufi Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee's Lecture on the quality of Listening. This beautiful poem was said inside the lecture which puts emphasis on listening to the inner ear. a very important quality for living life in full. You can download or listen the lectures from here,
