Big things insist on our consideration. They are in our faces, demanding action. It’s the little things, the quiet moments, the often unnoticed inflection of voice or questioning of eye, the small tootle of a morning bird, the singularity of a snowflake, that need our awareness.
So, we begin to listen to the unspoken, to see beyond the obvious, to open the eyes and ears of the heart. We begin to pay attention and in the very act of noticing, we acquire what we need most – perception, insight, patience.
In the silence, we get to hear ourselves – and that just may be all the incentive we need to make a change.
