Audible: (adj) able to be heard
Can you hear it?
Trust me, it’s there.
A whisper of reason
A breath of common sense
A wish that is being quietly mumbled from tentative lips
There are still people who believe in belief.
There are souls who lovingly pursue love.
And there are dreamers who are willing to share their dreams.
Yet noise can be alarming.
Screams and shouts often interrupt the prayers of the children.
How can we tune our ears to hear the good things in a world filled with the blaring sounds of insane conflict?
I don’t listen too much to the news.
I don’t stay in a room where bigotry is being proclaimed as truth.
I don’t hunt and peck with a gaggle of gossips.
In a world filled with bubbles, I have selected my enclosure.
It is sound-proof to the rattling of sabres and the insistence on war.
It has closed out a community of covetousness, which pleads for more, while ignoring what it already has.
It is an atmosphere where the natural melody of a human voice is preferred over the mechanical interpretation via an I-phone.
For after all, a “Book of Faces” does not provide a great body of proof.
You have to listen carefully.
You have to tune your spirit, like an excellent radio, to the frequency you wish to become the soundtrack of your life.
Truth is audible.
It’s just not very loud.
So if you feel overwhelmed by the volume, be prepared to be underwhelmed … by the content.
