This beautiful story shares about different levels of listening. Over time, I have started hearing strains from the ancestors and, at times, what feels like sound waves from the bigger Universe, unbound by clock time.
This is wonderful and reminds me of the four quadrant box of urgent/important/not urgent/not important. I read it in Stephen Covey's book the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and I've seen it attributed to Eisenhower. There is that short term dopamine boost from checking off tasks -- and yet for the big issues, I've only seen change appear when we actually sit with an issue long enough to see how to align energies beyond our own.
