So busy being busy,
Concerned with my own affairs,
I hear, but do not listen,
In conversation and prayer.
For hearing is quite passive,
But we listen with the heart,
Giving our full attention,
Instead of fragments and parts.
If we take time to listen,
We'll hear God's own gentle voice,
In nature, and each other,
Far above life's din and noise.
