"Between the conscious and unconscious, the mind has put up a swing; all earth creatures, even supernovas, sway between these two trees, and it never
winds down. Angels, animals, humans, insects by the million, also the
wheeling sun and moon; ages go by, and it goes on. Everything is
swinging: heaven, earth, water, fire, and the secret one is slowly
growing a body. Kabir saw this for fifteen seconds, and it made him a servant for life."
Listening is the oldest and perhaps the most powerful tool of
healing. It is often through the quality of our listening and not the
wisdom of our words that we are able to effect the most profound changes
in the people around us. When we listen, we offer with our attention an
opportunity for wholeness. Our listening creates sanctuary for the
homeless parts within the other person.
