Listeners Folly

A teeth, tongue and lips do not equate to a solution. A thought made manifest through this instrument will not always provide an answer.

What we think and what we say need to guarded with utmost diligence and discernment. All too quickly our opinion and prejudice falls in the way of the truth of the solution.

How often do we sit in silence and listen the the problem of a friend, colleague, partner, sister or brother? Very rarely. We believe we must conjure up a solution. Help. Give an answer however foolish it may be. But perhaps our mere presence and light touch of the hand is all they need.

I challenge you. Are the words you utter going to progress or prevent the situation or problem?

Be present. This is the key to great relationships.
