Devotion

26 10 2013

A quote from one of my favorite poets, Mary Oliver…

“When I walk into the world,

I take no thoughts with me.

That’s not easy, but you can

learn to do it.  An empty mind is

hungry, so you look at everything

longer, and closer.  Don’t hum!

When you listen with empty 

ears, you hear more.  And this is

the core of the secret:  Attention

is the beginning of devotion.”
