Spirituality from Daily Word: “Listen” (Espiritualidad de la Palabra Diaria: “Escuchar”)

Listen

In the stillness, I listen.

When the world is rife with clamorous noise and chatter, I may become distracted from purposeful activity. My energies may be dissipated as I listen to gossip, dissect the news of the day, worry about the stock market, or fret over trivial matters.

In my inner sanctuary, I find comfort and solace. Taking time to go to a quiet space, breathing slowly and deeply, stilling all thought, and releasing all worry, concern, or attachment, I create a sacred space to listen.

In the Silence, I surrender my worries and wants to the grace and peace I need, which I find within. As I listen, I build my trust in the Divine. My faith is renewed as I absorb all that I have received in silent contemplation. I return to my activities refreshed and refocused.

 

And he said, “Let anyone with ears to hear listen!”—Mark 4:9

Escuchar

 

En la quietud, escucho.

Cuando el mundo está lleno de sonidos clamorosos, puede que pierda noción de mi intención. Mi energía se disipa si presto atención a la algarabía, permito que las noticias me abatan o me preocupo acerca de mis finanzas. En mi santuario interno, encuentro consuelo y solaz. Tomo tiempo para ir a un lugar callado. Respiro profunda y pausadamente, aquieto mis pensamientos y libero toda preocupación, apego o temor. Creo un espacio sagrado para escuchar.

En el Silencio, entrego todas mis inquietudes y deseos a Dios. Encuentro en mí la paz y la gracia que necesitaba. Según presto atención, edifico mi confianza en la Presencia divina. Mi fe es renovada al reconocer todo lo que percibí en contemplación callada. Regreso a mis actividades alentado y centrado.

 

Entonces les dijo: “El que tenga oídos para oír, que oiga″.—Marcos 4:9
