Are you listening?

Are you listening?

 

Without listening, there is no understanding.  Without listening, another’s plea or cry cannot be heard.  Without listening, a bird chirps needlessly.

Every animal and human makes noise; it is up to us to listen in order to give correct interpretation to that noise.  Without correct listening, there is definitely no interpretation.

 

You must listen or you will not be able to tell anything well.

 

Another thing to listen to is the spiritus mundi.

 

Without said spirit, there also is no understanding and therefore no enunciation will be able to give that spirit a correct meaning and transform the universal noise into some understanding for your Dear Readers and Dear Writers.

 

'Spiritus Mundi' was a term used by W.B. Yeats to describe the collective soul of the universe containing the memories of all time. From 'Spiritus Mundi,' Yeats believed, came all poets' inspiration. Spiritus Mundi is a Latin term that literally means, 'spirit of the world'.
