I've been trying to learn, practice and get better at listening. Some days are better than others.
Here's a little bit from one of the books I'm currently reading;
"After he had received the last sacraments, a brother asked him if he were easy and what his mind was busied with. This was the reply: 'I am doing what I shall do, through all eternity - blessing God, praising God, adoring God, giving Him the love of my whole heart. It our one business, my brethren, to worship Him and love Him, without thought of anything else.' "
p108, The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother LawrenceHow often do we think like that? That each moment was full of thankfulness and praise for God. I am aiming to be like that, blessing, praising, adoring my God without thought of anything else; wouldn't that be something?
