THOUGHTS 4596 TO 4600

MY THOUGHTS 4596
QUESTION 553: DO YOU RESPOND TO STATEMENTS BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO SAY, OR DO YOU RESPOND BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4597
LISTENING: A TRUE FRIEND KNOWS HOW TO LISTEN TO A FRIEND’S ENTHUSIASM OR FRUSTRATION. A TRUE FRIEND KNOWS WHEN TO BE SILENT AND WHEN AND HOW TO RESPOND TO THE QUESTIONS OF THE SPEAKER. THOSE RESPONSES MAY BE THROUGH SILENCE, THROUGH UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSIONATE GESTURES, OR THROUGH MINDFUL VERBAL RESPONSES. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4598
LISTENING: A MIND THAT TRULY LISTENS IS OPEN TO DISCOVERY AND GROWTH. A VERBALLY RESPONSIVE MIND TENDS TO BE CLOSED TO DISCOVERY AND GROWTH BECAUSE THE ARE MORE INTERESTED IN RESPONDING THEN LISTENING. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4599
LEARNING: THE BEST WAY TO LEARN ANYTHING IS TO LISTEN MINDFULLY TO EVERYONE WITHOUT PREPARING TO RESPOND. JUST LISTEN, CONTEMPLATE, AND LEARN. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4600
LISTENING: WHEN YOU HEAR SOMETHING NOT PERTAINING TO YOU, IT IS WISE TO TURN YOUR ATTENTION TOWARDS SOMETHING OF INTEREST TO YOU. WHEN YOU HEAR SOMETHING PERTAINING TO YOU, LISTEN INTENTLY. AFTER SERIOUS CONTEMPLATION, YOU SHOULD DECIDE WHETHER TO RESPOND OR NOT. A RESPONSE MAY TURN OFF OTHER OPPORTUNITIES TO GATHERING INFORMATION PERTAINING TO YOU. REMEMBER THAT SILENCE IS GOLDEN.
