Thought for today ♥

I think the most profound effect of meditation is that it teaches you to listen and be patient. I think the kindest thing you can do for anyone is be completely present and listen. Listening without any intention to force yourself on a situation is so simple, but so powerful. That has a huge ripple effect beyond the person you have been patient with.

  1. You are absolutely right, and yet why is it the biggest challenge for any of us?

  2. Complete presence can be so much more healing than trying to help or give advise. I agree. Just presence is a believe and a solid trust. Beautiful quotation, Meg!
