Stop And Listen To The Silence Within You !

In the midst of a conversation, have you mentally switched off, shut down and gone home? Or are you busy competing for the other person's attention by going on and on and on.

Many of our conversations are not so much a dialogue, but two monologues happening at the same time.In fact, it's far more fulfilling to listen. To listen, we have to be available, not caught up in our own head or be sidetracked by our emotions.

Try not to interrupt. When someone says something, wait 3 seconds before replying to make sure that they have finished.

Make time to hear what another person has to say, to really listen and venture into a genuine conversation.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.
