The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention… A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.~ Rachel Naomi Remen
Listening without analysis, listening without expectation, listening without judgment … this is real listening.
Such listening is silent.
Attention is simply focused on listening. Attention is not consumed in thinking, judging, but it is simply being present.
When we are truly present, we are BEing. Being as we truly are, as we originally are. Silence. BEing precipitates the most powerful healing in others.
Is it any wonder then, that the loving silence of pure listening brings powerful healing!
