Do You Listen to People?

How can I let this Love in me flow into the world?

One way is to listen to people.

We are all in such a hurry to speak.

When we listen, we often do not really listen.

We only think about what we plan to say.

When they speak their truth, we are on holy ground.

Some of my most joyful moments are when I quietly sit with my family.

All I do is listen and watch.

My son shares funny stories from his day at middle school.

My daughter discusses her drawing class at the community college.
