How Wise We Become When We Have Nothing to Say
How Wise We Become When We Have Nothing to Say.
Mom always used to say, “God gave you two ears and one mouth” because you are supposed to listen twice as much as you talk!
I don’t know how others do it, but I have always had a hard time listening when I talk (LOL).
When we listen intently and sincerely, it is amazing how much we learn, how much we become trusted and endeared by others. How good we can make others feel with an open ear and big shoulders, and a non-judgmental attitude!
You see “active listening” is actually an art form, but one that anyone can learn with some practice!
You see all relationships get stronger and more complete when we become active listeners.
And here is the best place to start your exercise of active listening! It is in meditative prayer that we find how much our ears are open and our minds are filled!
And what better teacher to learn and to understand the “wisdom” of the ages than from God Himself!
