The art of listening 


When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know, but if you listen you may learn something new.                            Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama words are so wise. For the most part our egos want us to show others what we know, how knowledgeable and clever we are. But the wisest people take time to listen to  others. This helps to gain greater understanding and perspective. Ultimately expanding our own inner library of awareness. 

Every person we are aligned with has a unique message to exchange and therefore it is an opportunity to learn something new. Taking time to engage with others on a personal level yields dividends of a broader experience. 

Take time for self observation during the next conversation you have how much of the time do you actually listen? Do you interrupt the conversation or does you mind wander off and therefore you are no longer actually listening. 

Self mastery is a fundamental skill which needs our constant attention. We need to be at the helm of our own ships rather than someone else nagivating our lives. Self understanding is the first step towards making changes and breaking old patterns and habits.

Listen to others as well as in the silence listening to your own inner voice. Since this inner voice will act as a compass and guides you constantly. Learning to tune into the real knowledge is working towards self mastery. 

Sending love and blessings xx
