The art of listening

Listening is awareness without thought. Practically, this means not thinking while the person to whom I am listening is speaking.

Awareness without thought is a state of radical openness. Saints call it prayer. Secularists call it consciousness. (And really, aren’t labels useless?)

First, I am a space for you. Then we are a space for each other.

Words are not necessary for communication.

More words count less.
