"When listening to another person, don't just listen with your mind, listen with your whole body. Feel the energy field of your inner body as you listen. That takes attention away from thinking and creates a still space that enables you to truly listen without the mind interfering. You are giving the other person space-space to be. It is the most precious gift you can give." - Eckhart Tolle
To be listened to without the other person inflicting his or her own experience and judgment upon that which you are saying is to say to them, “I value you. I value you enough that I am willing to go deep inside myself, to tune in to my own energy field, so that I will winnow away all that would keep me from hearing YOU.” Knowing that the connection is such, that it is pure and aware of the I Am that we are sharing grants another the freedom to be all that they are; indeed, all that they will be.

Gentle Question: Are you aware of your inner energy field when you listen to others?
