The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen.
Just listen.Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention….
To listen is to continually give up all expectation and to give our attention, completely and freshly, to what is before us, not really knowing what we will hear or what that will mean.
A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.
A true friend is not like the rain which pours and goes away. A true friend is like the air, Sometimes silent but always around you….
