Important To Listen



Before a retreat, the retreaters were chatting about how many retreats they had been on, where they had been, and how much they knew. They were also drinking tea while they went on with pointless socializing when one woman noticed a man sitting silently looking out of a window. The woman went over to the man and said “You’re so quiet! Why don’t you join us?” The man smiled and said “I’m sorry. When I have something to say, I say it. Right now, the raindrops and thunder are speaking to me and I an intent on listening to them.”
