Learning to Listen

Soto Zen Roshi Gerry Shishin Wick of Great Mountain Zen Center in Berthoud, Colorado, writes in Zen in the Workplace:

To hear every sound as the dharma means to just pay attention. Listen to what people are saying when somebody is talking to you. We are usually so busy trying to say something that will impress them that we don’t really listen to what they are saying. It is easy to give and appropriate response if we are really listening.
