“Put your ear close to your soul and listen hard”. I found these words on a little piece of paper. I had written them quite awhile ago. I can’t remember where I found them, but they seem to be a good description of discernment. I ask myself what voices do I listen to-? Can I be still and silent long enough to hear my soul? And, am I patient enough to remain on a threshold for as long as it takes to fully absorb the wisdom I need before crossing the threshold?
