“What you see with your eyes shut is what counts.”
–Lame Deer, LAKOTA
Another whole world opens up when we close our eyes and calm our mind. Be still and know; be still and hear; be still and see; be still and feel. Inside every person is a still, small voice. Sometime it is necessary to close our eyes to shut down our perception in order to see. Try this occasionally; when you are talking to your child or spouse, close your eyes and listen to them. Listen to the tone of their voice; listen to their excitement; listen to their pain-listen.
Great Spirit, today, let me hear only what really counts.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we listen to our inner self it is usually right. Some think it is conscience or gut feeling others refer to it as ancestors guiding us. What ever it is we need to seek the assistance more often. Learning to meditate and pray helps us to be able to pay better attention to others when they speak. Watch the expressions of a blind person when you converse with one and you will see a person who is truly in Creators guidance, Children are in the same reality so it is important to listen to them because they are human beings not things we own.
