Soup of the Day
A touch of patience, a sprig of courage and a bowl full of attention.
Listen with all your heart. Switch off those conversations in your head. Ignore all the automatic reactions to what you are hearing. Concentrate on the words, on the person behind the words and how much you love them! Get a flavour of what is really in their hearts.
The Icing on the Cake
It's very precious to be listened to. If you practice it together, your love will grow.
"Why did God give us one mouth and two ears? Because he knew listening was harder than speaking." Anon.
