The receptive mind lets go of its answer to make room for the answer. – Vernon Howard
My ego tells me that I’m right. I believe my ego, in fact I live with my ego daily and think that it’s me. And that I must control life and all decisions therein. With that mindset I’m guaranteed disappointments and failures at all levels. I’m also guaranteed apparent successes. In other words I’m guaranteed a life of illusion.
There’s a faculty that allows us to perceive things as they truly are. This faculty becomes available to us when we stop controlling, when we become more still and when we can listen to the other person and to life itself, very deeply. Listening at all levels then is the answer and the only way.
Daily Affirmation: Today I listen deeply.
