Really listen

Seek to understand before seeking to be understood.

This means…  Listen, really listen.

This means… your only desire is to understand.

This means… not trying to give a solution.

This means… not trying to think of an answer.

This means… being fully present with all your senses dedicated to listening.

This means… your posture is open, listening.

This means… seeking clarification if you lose concentration or don’t understand.

This means… with compassion – an open heart.

This is an act of love.

Really listen
