what can you see that attracts you?

the blessings of hearing

What sounds do you particularly like? Why? When and where have you heard them? Is it the nature of the sound that you like or something about the context?

Now sit with your eyes closed and listen - what can you hear? Can you hear any sounds that come from inside you? What can you hear that originates from outside you? What do you think is making those sounds? Which of the sounds that you can hear now do you particularly like and why? Now continue sitting, listening to the pleasurable sounds - first putting your attention on the feelings of pleasure and then move your attention out so that it rests gently on the object from which the sound is coming - keep it there for a few minutes. Feel gratitude for your ability to hear.
