We are talking, but are we heard?
We try to explain, but are we understood?
Sometimes we feel like crying out "is someone out there"?
What am I talking about? I am talking about a conversation with an open heart, soul and mind. A conversation where one can feel comfortable, connected and at ease. A conversation, no matter what the subject, controversial or not, giving the feeling that there is a flow of energy, love, and understanding.
In order to have such an exchange, the following are required:
- Respect for each other
- Open mind and heart
- Empathy and compassion
- Taking the time to listen
On such a basis, a conversation can only be beneficial for all involved. There is nothing wrong with not agreeing, not sharing ones point of view. There is everything wrong with not respecting the other's opinion.
It is a gift to share feelings and thoughts with someone; it is one of the most special moments of intimacy to share in someone's inner being. Let's be grateful for this gift and treasure these moments.
