When we listen without the mind interfering, there's a stillness that makes for a simpler life that reclaims our consciousness (from the mind).
It’s listening without identifying with the feelings and thoughts, just observing. Our first thought might be: WHO OWNS THESE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS? THEY KEEP ON COMING. WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?
THEY ARE ENERGIES. No one owns them. Like the ocean, the wind and the mountains. We experience them, but we're NOT them (Respect and give them safe passage).
WE ARE STILLNESS from which all things come.
