“America was capable of creating King but not capable of preserving him.”
“Deep listening, listening with compassion, listen with only one person to help a person empty their heart. Don’t try to correct the person then, just listen to assist the person to suffer less. One hour of deep listening can assist transformation of another person.”
“Fear, anger and despair is born of wrong perceptions. Anger is the energy that people use to act but when you are angry, you are not lucid so you make mistakes. Deep listening will teach you a lot about your own perceptions.”
“Daily Mantra: Darling, I’m here for you.”
Above are some comments from Thich Nhat Hanh which are excellent to remind us that one way to preserve the greatness in all of us is to practice deep listening; listening without fear and anger but with compassion so that the person hears by your actions, “darling, I’m here for you.”
A new year – another chance to do it right or keep doing it right.
Love and light,
