These sentient beings need to be on the alert; it’s a matter of life and death. And yet, here I am on this humid day, being very restful and attending to Rumi’s advise: Listen to the silence. It has so much to say.
For years I’ve loved that suggestion because it implies that in listening to the silence, I don’t have to do anything. I know that’s true, but it’s only lately that I have practiced the advice. I don’t have to be active all the time. Neither do you. Try sitting in the silence. It has so much to say.
