“God gave us two ears and one mouth, so we can hear twice as much as we say.” – Unknown Source
It’s “Feastful Friday.” I don’t know if it is about reflecting and sharing how life fed my soul this week or how “PrayersWork” might feed yours. I will let you decide.
I was honored this week to speak with two amazing people who shared their remarkable stories where prayers were answered; beating all medical odds. They are giving me the honor of giving a voice to the miracles in their life. I pray I do justice to their stories that will be featured soon.
As my youthful dream was to become a “reporter,” it died when the rejection letter came from the coveted School of Journalism at The University of Southern California. Funny how life happens! Through the internet, I am a “prayer reporter” of sorts.
This week, “sacred” listening became one important skill. It’s the ability to listen with full acceptance, no self-imposed opinion, a muscle that needs constant conditioning. Perhaps this is the reason I have one mouth and two ears. If I can have a day of “two left feet,” can I have a day of “two left ears?” If yes, I suspect I am blind to the days I am using “two left eyes.” What blessings have I missed?
Spirit listens and sees me with unconditional loving, no opinion on what I should or should not be doing, how I should look, what I should wear, what I should say – no pressure. If I could unlock the power of living constantly with two clear eyes, and two fine-tuned ears, could I grow into my fullest potential? I have no clue what that even looks like. So this weekend, my intention is to unlock my right ear and my right eye and to balance those senses while I keep my mouth closed. Perhaps it’s the modeling of Spirit’s behavior that opens the door of wisdom.
