    Careful Listening

    Careful Listening

    "Careful listening
    are you able to do it
    or,
    are you like most
    you think while another is sharing
    ideas just fly by
    careful listening involves
    a commitment to be present
    an ability to let go of oneself momentarily
    empathy, a sense of being a mirror."

    Can you do it? It takes a lot of concentration and one cannot be distracted. I am listening to a program on the CBC fm radio about musicians who have the ability to be "careful listeners." They can tell who is playing an instrument or singing just by listening carefully.

    Very thoughtful, Lad. It's easy to "hear" what is being said, but not as easy to "listen"..........that calls for "paying attention"! 42
