Thought for the day

#Thought for the day:
Being entrenched in your point of view.

I am constantly amazed at how easy it is for me to sink into a comfortable position rather then truly engage in a conversation. Most times it seems that we invariably retreat to what we have learned already or what our ego says is the best way to respond.
Like it or not, we all do this and IMHO it’s a big factor in why there is such distrust in the world.

Why can’t we, as a community, place higher value on listening rather than espousing our conditioned responses?

Whenever I am enlightened enough to really pay attention I get so much more out of the exchange.

Try it some time…you will be amazed at how you respond.

#listening, #ego, #point of view
