I was reminded of what active listening really was about and I think it's a really important gift to just sit with another person and really listen to what the other person has to say.
We live in a time where we are moving so fast and multi-tasking. The art of active listening is being able to hold space for another and allow that person to be heard.
When you can do this and really let this practice be a part of your life, it will bring fulfillment on a whole new level. So next time you are in an important conversation with someone, take the time to really listen. No interruption, no projection of your own opinion, just stillness to really let them speak their truth. It will have profound effects on both of your lives.
