Practicing Listening

You know how you can go forever without hearing about something, then all at once, the same topic comes at you from all sides? That's how this past week has been for me about "listening". I think it's time I stop and pay attention now. :) I'm going to do my best today to truly listen to people. This means not trying to figure out what people are going to say before they say it.....not thinking about my reply before they're even done talking.....not half-listening/half-typing an email or reading a book. Today my big goal is to truly listen.

My poem for today is:

How Do I Listen?
-Hafiz, The Gift


Do I

Listen to others?

As if everyone were my Master

Speaking to me
