are you able to do it
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.
