Did you know that as well as being excellent singers, the common blackbird is also an exceptional listener?
After a period of silently listening, he's off, flying to another destination. A few minutes and he's back again.
This repeats: Sing, listen, act.
What can we learn from the common blackbird?
Sing, listen, act. Mastering these 3 in combination is the key to flow. Leave even one out and we are stuck, unable to continue on our path.
Sing - for why are we here if not to shine ourselves out into the world? Expressing ourselves brings the inner into the outer - then the universe knows what we need.
Listen - for listening is the key to connection. When we truly hear without letting thought and judgment interfere, then we get to know the inner workings of the universe. There is no enlightenment without listening.
Act - for it is through action that the universe, and those around us, knows who we are. Without intention or attachment to outcome, make action the result of singing and listening, and your deeds will always be aligned.
