Time to Lis­ten & Re­flect

Reader's Digest (India) - - React -

“The Day at the Beach” by Arthur Gor­don [Au­gust] was one of the most in­struc­tive pieces I have ever read. It should be made com­pul­sory read­ing for all of us who are in a mad rush, keep­ing ap­point­ments, check­ing e-mails or tex­ting, and have thereby be­come slaves to time.

I had read Arthur Gor­don’s ar­ti­cle and was alone at home tak­ing a walk. I then sat to just lis­ten to all that was hap­pen­ing around me. Just by lis­ten­ing, I found pro­found peace and con­tent­ment.

There is no deny­ing that lis­ten­ing means learn­ing, fo­cus­ing, en­light­en­ing. We re­pent of­ten for what we should not have spo­ken about, but rarely for what we kept quiet about.
