Koan: Who is hearing?
I can hear myself saying to my kids, "Time to get ready." Getting ready takes some effort. Getting ready takes some attention to the details at hand. The same is true for truly hearing … first we have to be ready to hear, then pay attention to what comes our way.
Who is hearing? If we're comfortable with our Higher Power -- trust in our Higher Power -- practicing Step Three with our Higher Power, then we believe we will be heard by our Higher Power. Believing that we are being heard, then, creates a space for a dialog with God … communication … a conscious contact… and the expectation that God will speak to us in some mysterious way.
Today is June 1st, a good time to sit with Step 6. As with all mysteries, it's important to pay attention to clues along the way. Some are delivered ever-so-faintly. Hush… I think I hear something.
