Mindfulness Monday – to Hear


“The quieter you become
the more you can hear.”

~ Ram Dass


“Usually when we hear or read something new,
we just compare it to our own ideas.
If it is the same,
we accept it and say that it is correct.
If it is not, we say it is incorrect.
In either case, we learn nothing.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh


“People generally see what they look for,
and hear what they listen for.”

~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

    1. Hi Carly, sorry I’m so late in responding.
      I don’t know what kind of plant it is, it just grown in my yard. It’s cool. First it flowers, then it has the green ‘berries”, then they turn a deep purple, then they fall off and leave a bright pink stem.
      Funny thing, I think it’s considered a weed. It’s a really big plant.
      Sorry I don’t know what it is.
      Best to you.
