Something occurred to me while on the train this morning.
The fact that a reasonable facet of life is about listening.
The ability to listen on the train to confirm the transport directions handed over to me by my pretty friend.
Yes, she gave me meticulous directions but if I abstain from listening or refuse to pay attention to the stops being displayed on the screens. Power will change hands. I will get lost.
The ability to listen without being defensive is a trophy.
To receive feedback without defending your insecurities is a monument.
How many times have we refused to listen to ourselves and others on our health? Emotions. Finances. etc
Life is easier when we listen to ourselves.
Listen to the details life is cultivating us with without being defensive.
When we listen and observe instructions we receive life.
When we act defensively, we may rest in peace.
