Be open to their experience of life.
By connecting to the message, to the diversity of the sounds, to both the common and the unique rhythms of the melody in the heart, celebrating with gratitude, the goodness and Love in the Oneness. 💓💞
By resting the urge to want them changed in some way.
To listen better with all my being and an open heart to the unique songs of others´hearts.
We all notice the efforts put by other but we do not acknowledge or appreciate the other person. Maybe because of the self ego or because we don’t want to show that we are thankful.
Telling a person how much he/she means to you is one of the best feeling in the world.
The world is a big place and all the love we give out will come multiplied.
What a timely question! Last night my “friemily” gathered for Lupercalia with our hand drums, together over a bountiful meal, all of us around a dancing fire and drummed our hearts out into the night until the snow and sleet began to fall. . . or the police were called. I forget which came first. The defining quality of each and every heart is a beat, so if there is a “unique song of others’ hearts” then why not celebrate our common rhythms?
“The medicine of the future will be music and sound.”
~ Edgar Cayce (1877-1945)
Listen carefully to each person when they speak. Listen to their voice, watch their expressions and body language, and experience the energy emanating from their soul. By truly listening to others’ songs in this way, we can be present for their expression.
When I truly listen to someone’s story of feelings, thoughts, art, music, sorrow, worries, joy and happiness that is a celebration for both of us.
Flood them with the Rosy – while ( heart ) light of Logic – Love …and then stay open to the returning messages / songs ./ harmonizing with them to promote unity and Joy.
I can celebrate the unique songs of others’ hearts by approaching their lives and experiences with curiosity, remembering that they have lived a life as complex as anyone’s and remembering that I will never fully understand their full story. This understanding calls for compassion.
Wow, to celebrate..to actually celebrate the heart song of another. Perhaps I’ve done this unintentionally but to be intentional about it, that’s another thing. What an experience to actually take the time to listen in the first place. To hush oneself to become aware of someone’s unique melody. Maybe I could write a song as a certain interpretation of what I feel is in them?
This question reminded me of the movie Happy Feet. Each penguin uncovering their own unique heart song which they share with the world. Others adding their own heart song and together they truly make beautiful music.
My first thought was just absorbing the goodness I presently see. I thought of the Bible passage where Mary meets Elizabeth. The baby leaped in her womb (being). That is celebration.
Such beautiful responses! Thank you for reminding me of all the ways to celebrate the unique song of joy and love in someone else.
Smiling and dancing!
Just being able to hear, and then feel, the unique songs of others’ hearts is itself the celebration! Such moments need not come with grand announcements, but with joy in breath, smiling eyes, and gracefulness of purpose.
I can first quiet myself to hear their songs and then bask in the melodies, enjoying the uniqueness of the notes. Listening will help me hear the song in my heart, too, and that all reminds me of my connection to Universal energy, which I can feel right now.
I can feel the song in me and that way I can also recognize it in someone else. It is a certain state of mind that makes that there is harmony between the other and me. That in itself is every reason to celebrate.💞🎶
What a beautiful question. I think I would try to find out the harmonic structure of the hearts song and create a melody that fits or enriches the song. Sometimes it is helpful to create some structure or making the rhythm clearer by accentuation. In some parts of the song I will sing less , or I will have to sing louder… once the song is understood by both of us , we can experiment with it and become creative. Then it is not anymore his or her song. We both are swinging in the same harmony. What a joy.
“Welcome! We are glad you are here. This is an open space where everyone belongs, and everyone is welcome. Please introduce yourself as you feel comfortable and join in sharing your experience of grateful living”.” I am Ann, nick name CSalt , sounds daft but I chose it years ago to remind myself that Jesus wants us to be ‘Salt of the Earth’” To get started you might reflect upon questions such as these: What am I grateful for? “I am grateful for all the love I find in a site like this. It encourages me greatly. I am my husband’s full time Carer and sometimes I fell like I am a huge failure in this.”What is grateful living inspiring me to do? What are some blessings in my life (including ones in disguise)?”The greatest blessing is that God has placed others to offer such wonderful encouragement”. How am I being supported right now? What connects me to wonder, awe, or a sense of the sacred? “I visit a wonderful site called ‘Sacred Space.’ It’s very special. Try it” You are welcome to include images and links for videos to illustrate your reflections.
That’s a really beautiful way to answer today’s question, Hermann-Josef 🙂
Beautiful. Thank you, Hermann-Josef. 🎶
