5 – Communications in Truth

What would our communications be like if we took the time to discover the truth inside of us; to think deeply and ponder, and then find good listeners to share our insights with? How would our communications improve if we developed good listening skills, tuning in with the rhythm of the speaker and then responding appropriately and with co-measurement?

I find that some of the most fulfilling times of my life have been when I spent a few hours with one person who listens to what I have to say and to whom I listen attentively. Whenever I spend any time with such a friend, I find neither one of us has dominated the conversation; it has been a unified rhythm. I walk away feeling nourished and filled; not emptied and drained. It is the deep and insightful conversation, as well as the listening and the appropriate responding, that is uplifting. I find that during those times, a poised and expanded consciousness holds the key to a mutually satisfying conversation.

Our conversations build or destroy life around us. A meaningful conversation resembles a soft, steady rain. It is non-intrusive, yet nourishes all that it touches, one little drop at a time. The earth has the time to absorb; the trees have the time to unfold; the birds have the time to come out and explore; the flowers open one petal at a time and unfold outward toward the life energy.
