Listen, don’t hear

Very often, we may have to remind ourselves to listen. And I am not talking about hearing.

You hear with your ears but you only listen with your entire being. It’s not just the gift of your presence but of your essence and time.

If you multitask, you don’t listen. Listening is not for multitaskers. Listening requires you put the phone and every other distraction away. It requires being still, lips sealed with your eyes looking at the one speaking.
