Listen more. Talk less.

Listen more. Talk less.

Absorb your moments fully,
be undistracted by trying to find witty or adequate words.

The best thing that can be said,
is often nothing at all.

Stop the cacophony of thought.

Feel the energy
pulsing within every moment,
unspoiled by the duality of your opinions.

Empty your mind
and allow your awareness
to open into its limitless expanse
of an undefiled presence of attention.

From this silence, wisdom grows;
and true understanding is found.

Realization requires no words.
