To listen to another human as if their every word was the most important event occurring right now on the planet takes practise.

Rather than be with them, listening, we find ourselves in our own conversation…perhaps preparing the ‘perfect’ rebuttal, or in our own thoughts about the coming weekend..

The practise of genuine wholehearted listening is a form of active meditation.

It begins with the simple desire to listen, to understand, to be fully with this fellow human as they speak words to life.

If the desire to listen, understand them, hear their words, their point of not present in you, perhaps it is more respectful to admit this with honesty and compassion.

Or to call time, and ask for a place to circle back when our scattered mind has the ability to be fully present.

When we quiet our own inner dialogue enough to hear the other, or the call from our own soul, we begin the practise that enables the ignition of our own intuition, our from-the-field-of-the-whole intuition, to arise.
