To: YOU From: Me
Love… is my gift to the world. I fill myself with love and I send that love out into the world. How others treat me is their path. How I react is mine.Dr. Wayne Dyer
We all so desperately long to feel loved, seen, heard, valued, understood. Don’t we?
I mean, is there anything much better than knowing that the person you are talking with is truly listening? Holding space for you as you unpack your heart?
Is there a better gift that you can give another than to listen well, not to reply but to hear. Not to rebuttal or solve or fix, but to allow them the beauty of being centerstage.
As spiritual beings having a physical, earthly experience, we are still learning. We still listen to reply, to fix, to explain. We still forget to hold space for another. They forget to hold space for us. They forget to listen just to hear, not to solve.
And so… I often pray this way:
I allow the others in my life to be who they are and do what they do. I give them permission to be on their journey. Likewise, I give myself permission to be on my journey.
We are still learning. We are still remembering. We all still need space as we wake up.
Make me a channel of your Peace, God. Amen.
Lover of Peace
