How you see…

is what you see[1]

observe with eyes wide shut

and look through the window of the soul

How you listen…

is what you hear

be attentive to the sounds of silence

and receive the noise in between the notes

How you speak…

is what you say

entreat with your lips pursed

and be a whisperer of being

How you sniff…

is what you smell

take a deep breath nasally…

and inhale the fragrance of union

How you grasp…

is what you hold

embrace the wind

and be touched by an angel

How you live…

is what you live

trust God’s Word

and take a leap of faith

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
