Microblog Monday #16–Listen

Microblog Monday 16 Listen

Listen with a curious mind, an open heart and a willingness to be vulnerable enough to say, I don’t understand. Tell me more. Most often, this is the best first step.

Whether the turmoil is in our external world as it is now, or going on inside me, I’m often at a loss for what to say or do. Then I realize I don’t need to SAY or DO anything. I simply need to listen.

Listen with curiosity to the voices of those in pain. Listen to those who understand through living a life very different than mine. They have perspective and insights I don’t have.  I want to listen to their stories with full heart and humanity.  Then I ask them to tell me more. I learn and I begin to understand.

If the turmoil or anxiety is inside me, then I need to listen. Quiet the mind and listen to my body. To my heart. To Spirit.

This is the first step and will lead me to the next step then the next.
