Wake Up Call! – To listen is to be amazed!


To listen is to be amazed!

I began my morning walk as I always do with a practice of being mindful about my breath, body and thoughts. As I walked towards the orchards something was different but I wasn’t sure what! I didn’t feel unsafe but something was inviting my attention.

My ears seemed to make a choice for me as I noticed the attentiveness with which I was listening.

The apple orchard ahead of me was bathed in the early morning sunlight and as I approached it I broke into a broad smile. It was the sound of music; the music of bees busily pollinating the apple trees. I was amazed by the magic of the sound.

As I walked past the beehives I felt grateful for this moment, for the listening and for amazement. What will you and I listen for this week?


  • Listen with attentiveness to what is around you
  • Expect to be surprised and amazed.

Notice how out of the seeming silence life greets you on its own terms.
