July 13: Senses: Hearing
“You have to hear what you don’t want to hear to know what you don’t want to hear.”
H. Gustav Mueller, Ph.D.
If, like me you’ve been married long, you’d know that spouses develop selective hearing where things they don’t want to hear are concerned. It’s often a comic situation at our home when we both are engrossed in whatever we are doing, listening, or watching and fail to hear what our spouse is saying. The usual modus operandi is to deny whatever was said or discussed completely! But that’s okay in a long term relationship! 😂😜
How many rumors come to you with these words; “I’ve heard……”
Wise people say not to believe everything you hear, but first to check if it’s true and authentic. Lies and rumors shred the reputation of innocents and scatter like leaves blown by a strong wind; never to come back again!
Such a profound quote!
Keep your ears open
To listen to what’s being said
But also hear what is not uttered
The words left unspoken
Only the eyes convey
The thing lips don’t
