“Listening is a form of spiritual hospitality by which you invite strangers to become friends.”
It’s amazing what you actually hear when you truly listen. Your perceptions, judgments, and negativity fade away to reveal another’s truth.
“When we listen to a person, we take them into our lives” Joan Chittister writes in The Monastic Way. “We welcome them and all their concerns, all their interests, all their openness.”
Today I ask that we would all be blessed to clearly hear another’s thoughts.
