Empathy is full presence to what’s alive in the other person at this moment. – John Cunningham
This is about the best advice I’ve come across when it comes to building better relationships with one and all!
Think about it, your full attention on the other person, totally connected to the very heart and soul of this individual. What would be the world-wide result if we all did this even once a day? There are 3 components mentioned:
- Full Presence: We’re listening and present at all levels.
- Alive: We seek that which is beautiful and magnificent in the other.
- This moment: It all occurs in the eternal Now.
Imagine the sheer power of this one exercise on all aspects of our lives!
