Spirituality Beware a Lack of Listening By Vinita Hampton Wright You become wise through listening. However, it’s impossible to listen if you’ve already made up your mind—because you don’t need more information, you know what you’re doing, and you don’t see how someone else’s experience really compares to yours. Watch this video excerpt on listening from my Small Simple Ways: An Ignatian Daybook for Healthy Spiritual Living.
Always wise advice from Vinita.
When thinking about one person’s experience in comparison to another person’s experience, sometimes there is no comparison. I cannot comprehend what a person living on the street goes through. I can empathise as best I can. Listening is a two-way street and giving each other that respect is essential.
TIMELY ADVICE! Thanks, as always, Vinita.
Thanks Vinita. Listening helps. Sharing wisdom is a win-win situation.
